The tweet heard 'round the SCV

Saugus Union School District board member, Stephen Winkler, hurled a venomous insult at district teachers on Twitter on May 28th.  The tweet is Winkler's customized variation on Spiro Agnew's well known statement that was: "A spirit of national masochism prevails, encouraged by an effete corps of impudent snobs who characterize themselves as intellectuals."  Agnew was raised a Democrat but  switched parties and became a Republican. Stephen Winkler had a similar change of heart, going from a self-proclaimed pro-choice Democrat in 2004, to a pro-life Republican in 2011 when running for the SUSD school board seat.
