But Don't Ever Forget, It's the Liberals Who Are Filled With Hate : Obama's Planned Speech Controversial
President Obama will make a live address to the nation's schoolchildren at noon Tuesday -- the first of its kind in American history. The speech will be broadcast through the White House's Web site and on C-SPAN. According to the U.S. Department of Education, the president will "challenge students to work hard, set education goals, and take responsibility for their learning."

But many parents are concerned that Obama will take the opportunity to indoctrinate children with his legislative agenda, and some are threatening to pull their kids out of school that day.

Superintendent Susan Purser said Moore County is no exception, and that she and Board of Education members have been receiving e-mails and phone calls from concerned parents expressing their displeasure with the speech. Purser said the school system is not mandating participation but is instead making it a "site-based" decision.

I'm sure you'll be shocked to know that I was never a big fan of George Dubbya Bush. But you know what? If he'd given a speech to the nation's schoolchildren, I wouldn't have kept my kids home from school that day for fear he'd pollute their brains with his scary "legislative agenda". And I know damn well if anyone had even suggested doing such a thing, the wingnuts would be all up in arms about "Bush Derangement Syndrome" and shrieking about how "hateful liberals" couldn't even give the President a respectful hearing. But once again, IOKIYAR!

Personally, I blame Vince Lombardi. It all goes to hell when will-o'the-wisp winning is all that matters.

There's a hot story out here claiming a MoveOn rallier bit off the pinky finger of a 65-year-old counter-demonstrator during an altercation.

Cops can't identify or locate the assailant. The finger was found and has been re-attached. LA Times is full of fulmination about 'Obamanian cannibals.'

Double agent and false flag, perhaps? Strikes me as another 'Attack Their Supposed Strength' page from the Rove playbook.

Tom: this smacks of that whole hoax where the young McCain campaign worker claimed she was attacked by a Big Scary Black Man who yelled "you are going to be a Barack supporter" and carved a letter "B" onto her face---backwards. Turned out to be a total fabrication on the girl's part.

Maybe they're afraid their impressionable kiddies will see that Barack Obama is a human being and not whatever they're saying he is.

Witnesses report the old man sucker-punched the younger one, and continued slugging the younger one when he fell to the ground.

Continued face-strikes, say witnesses, are what got the old man's hand into the young man's mouth.

So far we've fallen.
