Grade school politics

Posted By on Fri, Sep 25, 2009 at 6:59 PM

Been watching cable? The wingnuts are going bonkers because a school in New Jersey (in video above) taught some kids to sing a little ditty praising Barack Obama.

That ain't all. There's a local angle. The wingnuts didn't name-check the school very closely. In their Googling madness, they confused it with a school in Springdale, Ark., which got an earful of angry callers about its non-indoctrination.

PS -- When Gulf Coast kiddies serenaded G.W. Bush with a song of praise for his work on Katrina -- Katrina! -- it was just luverly.
