The latest winger brouhaha over some school students singing a song praising Obama is, of course, happening in a vacuum. Are we to believe that George W. Bush wasn't revered as a colossus, godlike in stature and deified by the conservative movement. Does nobody remember this?
Incidentally, I find all of it creepy (the teacher probably should have laid off). Which is the consistent position. But the degree to which George W. Bush has been written out of the wingnut vocabulary is striking.
