Grapevine: Controversy over California sex-ed class

Now some fresh pickings from the Political Grapevine...

Good Intentions

A move by Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker that was likely intended to ingratiate himself in the eyes of a Jewish constituent has decidedly backfired.

A letter has surfaced from the Republican's stint as Milwaukee County Executive.

He responded to a request for Hanukah decorations in the court house.

Quote -- "We would be happy to display the menorah," the letter reads.

It concludes -- quote -- "Thank you again and Molotov. Sincerely, Scott Walker."

It's safe to assume he meant mazel tov -- a Jewish exclamation used to wish someone well, rather than Molotov -- a type of explosive usually made from gasoline or alcohol inside a glass bottle.

Governor Walker says it was probably a typo.

Misquotable

Speaking of a religious faux pas -- President Obama made a curious biblical reference at an event in Nashville, Tuesday.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: The good book says don't throw stones in glass houses or make sure we're looking at the log in our eye before we are pointing out the mote in other folks' eyes.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

The president is mistaken.

While the bible does warn against judging others, there are no references to glass houses.

One person tweeted -- quote -- "Obama just said that 'the good book' talks about people in glass houses not throwing stones...What book is that again?"

Beyond the Syllabus

And finally, parents in one California school district were floored to hear what their kids are learning in sex-ed.

9th graders at Acalanes High School near San Francisco are learning about the birds and the bees -- not from their teachers, but from employees of Planned Parenthood, with worksheets including a check-list of things to do before having sex.

And tips for asking your partner to take the relationship to the next level.

Most surprising for some people -- this diagram of a "genderbread" person, which lays out something of a flow chart for how to identify one's gender.

Parents tell Fox News Planned Parenthood appears to be pushing an agenda that is not necessarily in line with their beliefs.

They are asking the school system to give them full access to the instructor and curriculum so they can decide whether to opt out their children.
