Drama Queens: Snivelling High School Punks Want to Call for Bush's Death at Talent Show

It was between this or banging on pots while chanting "Please Pay Attention to Me!!!!":

DENVER (Reuters) - A Colorado high school talent show turned into a political hot potato after some parents said a trio of students planned to use a Bob Dylan song to say they wished for the death of President Bush, officials said on Friday.

...

Even if there was a misunderstanding over whether the students -- some of whom called themselves the "Talibanned" -- meant to wish harm to the president, they learned how offended people can get.

...

The problem started after rumors circulated that a trio of students planned a poetry reading at the talent show using lyrics from the Bob Dylan anti-war song "Masters of War." But some parents got the impression that the students wanted to alter the words to say they wanted to see the president dead while a slide on a curtain displayed Bush's picture.

Ummm, where's the possible misunderstanding?

Usually Secret Service agents, responsible for keeping the president safe, do not visit high schools to check on threats to the president.

Shut up, really?!

"We're very sensitive about First Amendment rights," [the principal] added.

And the Secret Service is very sensitive about incitement to murder the President. They're real bears on the issue. Indeed, one could say that it's sort of their job.

"It's a tempest in a teapot. "It apparently began with a misunderstanding of a parent who was told about a rehearsal," Denver attorney and local talk show host Craig Silverman said.

Ah. There's the m-word again-- "misunderstanding."

Whenever people like this get into trouble, they claim that 1) it was a misunderstanding or 2) that they were being "ironic," or just "doing a character," like Ice-T and other thugs claim when they urge people to kill cops.

It's ironic except it's that sort of ironic where you really mean it, and plainly state so. Kind of like Spinal Tap irony-- "I think the message of our music is love your fellow man.'" "I mean, we don't literally say that." "We don't literally mean it." "But I think it should be obvious to anyone who listens."

Boulder, Colorado, has long been known as a bastion of liberalism and is often referred to by locals as "the Republic of Boulder."

Ummm, I've never been there, but usually they say "the People's Republic of ___________." I'd bet real money that that's what it is.

So is this reporter just a doofus, or what? Maybe there was a "misunderstanding" about Boulder's nickname.

Last week, Boulder high School students staged an overnight sleep-in at the school to protest Bush's re-election.

These people really have got to get over the sixties. I mean, these dopey lefties in training weren't even born then. Heck, these snot-nosed little twacks were just barely born in the eighties.
