A St. Paul elementary school is officially changing its name to "Barack and Michelle Obama Service Learning Elementary," pending approval of the school board.
Webster Magnet Elementary is piloting a service learning program this year that the school board is supposed to officially approve later this month. The school wanted a new name to reflect its new focus, so it put the Obama name and "Webster Service Learning Elementary" on the ballot for the school community.
Ballots were cast on Thursday by students, staff, and community members, and when they were counted this morning, the Obama name came out on top. The final tally was 526 to 328.
According to school board policy, new names of schools, programs, mascots and logos "shall reflect the diversity of the district," and all name changes need to be approved by the school board, "in consultation with the school community."

Title was so long I had to edit it down.
The public fawning continues...
I will contribute the barf. BARF!
When do the 60 foot high paintings of The One’s face go up?
Sad that they are leaving Che’ Gueverra’s name out of their new “school” name. If they have any sports teams, they might want to consider the name “Freeloaders” for their sports teams. That would reflect “the diversity” of the district perfectly.
School reading books to be replaced by teleprompters...
How about Dear Leader U?
And it chose to change its name because...
I wonder if, in the new Zero-named school, their math classes will be teaching the younguns how much in debt they already are from “The One’s” spending.
I want my kids' school renamed the "Barack and Michelle Obama, Klan Exalted Cyclops Robert C. Byrd, Todd Palin, Felipe Calderon, and Mao Zedong Elementary School and Diversity Indoctrination Center". It has a nice, musical sound.
“And it chose to change its name because...”
Because Webster isn’t a popular TV series anymore...
The whole F**KING world has gone insane...
So he’ll notice them and maybe he’ll visit. Then they can bask in his glory. Maybe, he’ll even look at them.

This is how fascism begins. (And the Left was screaming about GWB...?)
King County, Washington was named after some early, white guy that helped develop Seattle or something. Last year, they officialy “renamed it” King County - after Martin Luther King. His face is now on all of the King County vehicles, emblems, etc. Very Orwellian - creepy.
In another ten years I imagine it will be “renamed” King County again, with images of “The One” plastered on the side of county vehicles.

That St. Paul guy was really a nobody anyhow.
I hear they are changing their mascot to a giant hand, palms up of course.
Michelle too? It took Eva Peron years to gain such blind adulation!
Why don’t they wait a while to see how much The Won is going to embraass himself and his supporters? The Post Office will not put anyone on a stamp until they have died. Should be the same for a school.
Well, someone had to be first. I like the nod to 'service'. Will it be more about service or more about learning...
