Words Made to Last

I was struck by Kevin Drum's tendentiousness here:
Over at, Mickey Kaus and my boss are talking about whether it should be easier to fire bad teachers. Naturally this turns into an argument about union busting (Mickey's all for it) vs. figuring out a way to work with unions on this (Paul's position).
Note that Mr. Kaus's fairly centrist position is described as "union busting", while Mr. Glastris's doctrinaire adherence to the union line is presented as an honest quest for solutions.
