Georgia Elementary School Verse: ‘Obama Ran So Our Children Could Fly’

We just celebrated Washington's birthday under the generic title of Presidents' Day. (Forget Lincoln's Birthday.) I propose that since we no longer have any white guys with special days named after them, we need to change the name of MLK Day to "Some generic black guys' Day". That way Obama can claim celebration of his wonderful deeds twice a year without having to actually accomplish anything useful.

I usually refer to MLK day as "National Negro Day".

This will probably come to pass.

TUCKER, Ga. – It’s no secret government schools have put President Obama on a pedestal unlike any other national leader.

Schools have been named after him long before his retirement or death, which is rather unprecedented. Students have been led in organized chants of his honored name. There are lesson plans comparing him to Abraham Lincoln.

But sometimes school employees take the rhetoric a bit too far and wind up in propaganda territory. The latest example comes from DeKalb County, Georgia.

For Black History Month, Livsey Elementary School created a cute display with the lines:

Rosa sat…so Martin could walk.
