Turn On, Tune In, Drop Out

Your Head Here.John J. Jingleheimer Schmidt Pitney Jr. at the Corner:

The text of the president’s speech to schoolchildren is largely inoffensive. But it contains at least one political gaffe. If you quit school, he tells the kids, “You’re not just quitting on yourself, you’re quitting on your country.” Among Americans between ages 65 and 74, 20.7 percent quit before finishing high school. For those 75 and older, the figure is 27.4 percent. The latter group includes some who quit in order to enlist in the armed forces after Pearl Harbor. And yet the president seems to be calling them unpatriotic.

At first we thought this was yet another example of high school debaters taking over the conservative movement. But then we realized: the cynical intellectuals at NRO are all highly educated. In saying it’s okay to drop out, they’re really trying to eliminate their competition. After all, somebody has to clean their drains.

Also, Obama mentioned taking responsibility for your education, and some Catholic Nuns allow the church to direct their education, therefore, OBAMA IS SAYING THAT CATHOLIC NUNS ARE UNPATRIOTIC!

Why does Obama hate the Vatican?

@Tommmcatt Floats: Also, Obama said that his momma tutored him M-F at 4:30 in the morning because Indonesian schools weren’t as good as American schools. Why does Obama take such an elitist view of American education? Plus, everyone knows that Fridays are holy days in Mooslem countries. Why does Obama hate the Mooslem faith so much?

Oh, wait….

I see, so Obama should have been all: quitting school is baaad, m’kay? Unless you’re quitting to join the Army, m’kay?

Yeah, these guys are beneath parody.
