I could've sworn that the "bad old days" of worshipping the Man on the Throne were pretty much gone after the American Revolution.
Who would've guessed that the nation that defined itself by throwing off the royalty of the past would so easily return for more?
‘Obama rap’ draws complaint from parent
By Julie Hubbard
When Chase Drew’s second-grade son came home from Alexander II Magnet School with a permission slip asking the child to memorize an “Obama rap” for a Black History Month program, Drew got upset when he read the lyrics.
One verse asked that troops be brought home from Iraq. Another line sought lobbying for health care.
“If it was we’re celebrating a new president, fine,” Drew said of the lyrics. “They’re putting politics into it.”
He didn’t allow his son to participate in the rap during a Feb. 25 assembly at the magnet school.
