David Corn Joins John Nichols as "Clueless Demowimps" of the Month

Below is the now infamous Obama school song. How strange is the uproar? I learned of the fake outrage from my very conservative friend. But get this, he was angered by how insane his fellow conservatives were acting. For him, it was a total non-issue, a who cares moment.

This video also marks the second time a well known liberal writer (John Nichols) and commentator bought into the conservative frame. Instead of thinking it was cute, because as a father of a 7 year old-it was, David Corn turns in his credibility card for a few moments of agreement with Pat Buchanan.

Instead of recognizing Republicans were again trying to marginalize our illegitimate BLACK president, Corn falls all over himself feigning outrage over the unthinkable tribute to our first black president on Black History Month. Corn is hopeful school kids will never sing a song like that again.

If he had done a little research, he might have discovered, from the Huffington Post:

Alas, such "propaganda" has not been limited to despots, dictators and the Obama White House. As a savvy source points out, back in 2006 children from Gulf Coast states serenaded First Lady Laura Bush with a song praising the President, Congress, and Federal Emergency Management Agency for their response to -- of all things -- Hurricane Katrina. The lyrics were as follow:

"Our country's stood beside us People have sent us aid. Katrina could not stop us, our hopes will never fade. Congress, Bush and FEMA People across our land Together have come to rebuild us and we join them hand-in-hand!"

The event took place at that year's White House Easter Egg Roll and included roughly 100 children from Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama. President Bush, it seems, wasn't in attendance during the song itself.
