The Knucklehead of the Day award

Today's winner is Greg Howard. He gets the award for the following-

MARIANNA - A Florida middle school teacher has been suspended after students said he used a racial epithet directed at presidential candidate Barack Obama.

Seventh-grade social studies teacher Greg Howard reportedly wrote the word CHANGE as an acronym on the board and wrote an expletive with the letter 'N.'

The phrase he wrote has alternately be reported as "Can You Help A (expletive) Get Elected" and "Come Help A (expletive) Get Elected."

The incident happened last Friday at Marianna Middle School.

The Jackson County School Board said Thursday that Howard has been suspended without pay for 10 days and will be transferred to the Jackson County Adult Education program. He is also required to submit a letter of apology to his students and attend diversity and sensitivity training.

What the teacher did was awfully dumb. Did he think some how what he wrote wouldn't become know outside the classroom? I name Greg Howard of Marianna Florida today's Knucklehead of the Day.
