The school voucher referendum has now been voted down. In an election night interview, Patrick Byrne, CEO of, who spent several million dollars in the failed pro-voucher campaign, stated that it was really an intelligence test for the state of Utah. Well, the pro-voucher camp has no one to blame except its own Parents for Choice in Education organization.

Instead of explaining the application and benefits of vouchers, they insulted the intelligence of a majority of Utahns with their "liberals hate vouchers" campaigns. Implying that Ted Kennedy, Michael Moore and Nancy Pelosi were actively involved in attempting to defeat the Utah school voucher campaign ruined their credibility.
