His mood darkened as he read the Tribune...
Mayor: New high school won't be named after President Obama
Mayor Rahm Emanuel backed off Thursday from naming a new elite high school after President Barack Obama amid ongoing criticism from African-Americans who felt the honor inappropriate for a school slated for a wealthy, predominantly white part of the Near North Side.
Rahm was still angry at these vocal citizens for making him back down. "I promised the President! So my new school is too rich and too white? Where do these mu&%#$ f#$%ers think Obama sends his girls? Sidwell Friends wasn't exactly the Blackboard Jungle!"
Just then, Rahm cringed as his cell phone began to play "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy" from his pants pocket, the ringtone he had personalized so he knew when the president was calling. He resisted the urge to pirouette on this crowded train, and promised himself to afford the time in the quiet confines of his office.
He hesitantly answered his phone.
RAHM: uhhh.. Hello? Mister president?
OBAMA: Where's "Rahm-bo?" What have you done with my former chief of staff?
RAHM: Mr. president, I know you must be angry with me, but there was just too much public pressure...
OBAMA: Pressure? I had the entire healthcare system named after me against public support and threat of impeachment and you can't even get one measley school named after me on the north side of Chicago?
RAHM: B.b.b...but the latest Tribune poll shows that 6 in 10 African-American voters disapprove of my job performance...
OBAMA: Those are way better approval numbers you ever got for your dance performances. Listen Rahm. Let me be clear. I have to go now or I'll miss my tee time. FIX THIS, or I will be calling an emergency meeting with my joint chiefs on this issue next week. I will not hesitate to get boots on the ground over this, am I clear?
The *click* announced the president disconnecting without waiting for his response.
Rahm knew he had to come up with an alternative that made the president happy, not because he needed Obama's support in the future. Quite the opposite, since the president's job approval numbers were worse than his own and he had become toxic after having destroyed the country's economy, national security, health care and shredding the constitution. That said, he could still crush him with his pen and his phone.
He started to brainstorm school name alternatives to get himself out of this jam...
BHO Prep? No, too obvious. HUSSEIN ACADEMY? Hmmm...Maybe... OBAMA MADRASSA AND FATWAH HIGH SCHOOL? Yes, better... but still not quite... BARRY SOETORO HIGH (AGAIN)?...
A school named after him would be more appropriate in Indonesia.ReplyDelete
I'd heard that a school had decided not to use his name and kind of hoped they thought it beneath them :-)ReplyDelete
The IRONY that Black America thinks it apparently should be a slum or ghetto school which gets Obama's name when they SAY they want all Blacks to SUCCEED is amazing. And disgusting. Truly disgusting. I guess they don't.
Not that I don't think a ghetto school steeped in drugs and incompetency doesn't fit better, but... how horrid.
Did you know there's a school in NYC named after avowed socialist Norman Thomas? I actually couldn't believe they'd name a PUBLIC school after a socialist and, sure enough, I called, and it was :-)
Ed, you may be onto something. Do they have golf schools in Indonesia?ReplyDelete
Z, "Not that I don't think a ghetto school steeped in drugs and incompetency doesn't fit better..."
Ha! Yes, but their B-ball team would kick %##! and really, what else matters?
and I had no idea about the NYC school named after an avowed socialist. That is disgusting but sadly not surprising. Then agian, what's worse, a school named for an avowed socialist or an American president who is a closet socialist?
He came out of the closet a while back.ReplyDelete
