Barack Obama Elementary School

By Tony Mazur

No joke.

The five-member school board in Hempstead, Long Island, New York voted unanimously to change the name of Ludlum Elementary School into Barack Obama Elementary School. The change is effective immediately.

This will be the first of many Obama-themed changes to various schools, streets, cities, and even points of interest. The prime minister of Antigua and Barbuda has said he's taking measures to have Boggy Peak renamed Mount Obama. Even parents have named their newborns Barack.

I'm at a loss for words. The man hasn't even become president, and the media has already hailed him the next Lincoln, Roosevelt, and Christ. The media fills the minds of the ignorant masses that think Obama rose from poverty to become what he is today. That is certainly not the case. He attended prestigious schools his entire life, and happened to rise through corrupt Chicago politics they way every Illinois politician has in years past. His story is by no means inspirational.

Do you remember how both Maya Angelou and Michelle Obama stated that this is the first time they are proud to be Americans? In this case, I am embarrassed to be an American. I am both stunned and ashamed at the ignorance of the American people. Wake up.
