School kids in the tiny Arkansas town of Russellville actually managed to learn something during their years of below-par public education. They learned, for example, that Dick Cheney and George W. Bush are two of history’s worst people. This is something a lot of adults haven’t even learned yet, in America. (It’s well known in all the smart countries around the world.) So the kids decided to list the worst five people in their school yearbook, so when they sit in the smoking ruins of America a decade or two from now, they can remember. But the Arkansas grownups are mighty upset! How dare these smarty jones kids list Bush and Cheney alongside these other people, whoever they are!
Open up the Russellville Middle School yearbook. You’ll see the students’ pictures, the administration, and a pretty controversial list that’s supposed to be covered with a piece of black tape …. The list is titled “Top 5 worst people of all time.” The top three, in order, are Adolph Hitler, Osama Bin Laden, and Charles Manson. Numbers four and five are George W. Bush and Dick Cheney. Superintendent Randall Williams calls the list “an oversight.”
(Ha ha, the Fox News local channel can’t spell “Adolf.” Also, isn’t the black tape saved to cover up Obama’s name?)
An oversight? Does he mean because the kids included some minor hippie cult leader responsible for a handful of deaths in the league with monsters who all killed at least thousands and thousands of innocent people? Perhaps that is an oversight. Perhaps they should have skipped Manson and included someone with a body count approaching Cheney’s. But these are just kids! It’s not like they accidentally included Nelson Mandela!
