Is Our Children Respecting?


Fox News just did an extraordinary segment on how George W. Bush visited a Harlem school this week and was treated with... respect! Neil Cavuto even had some of the kids as in-studio guests to salute them for not heckling the Leader of the Free World. ("AMERICA'S KIDS ON RESPECTING THE PRESIDENT," read the chyron.) The hilarious premise is that this was not the obvious thing to do. "You guys have more class than a lot of people that are much older than you," Cavuto solemnly explained.

Man, you know things are really bad when it's actual news that school children aren't treating their president like a substitute teacher....
