The Kids Are Alright

Good news from America's public schools. They've heard enough from President Obama, or at least that's what one could ascertain from their underwhelming participation in this year's "Race to the Top Commencement Challenge". After students from more than a thousand schools applied to have the president speak at their commencement ceremony last year, a contest which was won by Kalamazoo Central High, the Obama administration was expecting record participation this time around. However, to date they have only received 68 applications, of which only 14 came in by the original February 25 deadline. If that's not a "let me be clear" message to the president from America's youth, I don't know what is. That's the problem with cults of personality and fickle teenage audiences. What was cool to your older sibling, usually ain't cool to you. Even Justin Bieber has a shelf life. Better go back to the drawing board on that indoctrination.

Exit Question: Could Barack Obama even win a student council race today?
