Those New Jersey school children singing songs of praise to Obama might remind us of this poem from Animal Farm by George Orwell:
- Friend of fatherless!
- Fountain of happiness!
- Lord of the swill-bucket!
- Oh, how my soul is on
- Fire when I gaze at thy
- Calm and commanding eye,
- Like the sun in the sky,
- Comrade Napoleon!
- Thou art the giver of
- All that thy creatures love,
- Full belly twice a day, clean straw to roll upon;
- Every beast great or small
- Sleeps at peace in his stall,
- Thou watchest over all,
- Comrade Napoleon!
- Had I a sucking pig,
- Ere he had grown as big
- Even as a pint bottle or as a rolling pin,
- He should have learned to be
- Faithful and true to thee,
- Yes, his first squeal should be
- "Comrade Napoleon!"

(People are not stupid! Good ideas win!)
Fortunately, they still read Animal Farm in many public schools. (But I wonder for how long?)

(Take that thing off your head and act like an American!)
Orwell’s satire hews fairly close to the actual 1930s socialist realism genre in the Soviet Union.
“Ode to Stalin” was the title of more than one famous poem of the era.
Everything old is new again. Remember, it’s not your father’s communism - it’s new and improved!

The West is red, the sun is rising
Amerika has brought forth a Barack Obama.
He works for the peoples welfare.
Hurrah, He is the peoples great savior.
Chairman Obama loves the people,
He is our guide,
To build a new Amerika,
Hurrah, he leads us forward!
The Communist Party is like the sun,
Wherever it shines, it is bright.
Wherever there is a Communist Party,
Hurrah, there the people are liberated!

(Obama = Jim Jones coercing us into suicide on a national scale)
“Lord of the Swill-bucket” — there the Empty Suit goes again, aspiring to something for which he is unqualified and unworthy.
