Republicans Bring “Classiness” To the Classroom

Remember when a presidential speech to school kids was considered positive and uncontroversial? Back when Republicans were in the White House? Funny, what a difference one election can make.

President Obama wants to address schoolchildren about working hard, being responsible and playing by the rules, and all hell breaks loose:

Republicans Bring Classiness To the Classroom (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

“Act responsibly. Stay in your schools.”
“Study hard and please play by the rules.”
How dare the Prez preach
Such sins in his speech!
Ain’t no way to breed right-wing tools.

    “Act responsibly. Stay in your schools.”
    Or you’ll enter the jobless pool.
    No lifeguards to save
    When you misbehave
    In town hall meetings for fools.

    ——-Republican Call for Candidates——

    Well now we’re looking for an idiot
    An honest-to-God idiot
    To be the leader of the good ‘ole USA

    Morons need not apply
    Your IQs are much too high
    To sell the voters the Grand Old Party way, Hey!

    You needn’t feel queasy
    The job is very easy
    Carl Rove will tell you everything to say

    There’s really nothing to it
    The Constitution? Screw it
    The middle class? We’ll take everything away, Hey!

    We’re looking for an idiot
    To be the leader of the good ole’ USA

    The Rich get all the money
    The rest do all the work
    If anyone thinks that’s funny
    He’s a traitorous, liberal jerk

    Cause that’s the Grand Old Party waaaaaaaaaay

    If kids do what Obama suggests
    and they strive to always do their best
    They will no longer buy
    All our hate mongering lies
    And the crap that we make them ingest
