Cart before the horse

If it's not too early to start naming schools after Barack Obama, I guess it's not too soon to declare his presidency a failure? Or to start impeachment hearings?

If I were Barack Obama, I'd be embarrassed, not honored. But then again, I don't have an ego the size of Mount Rushmore.

Why not?

Opa Locka, FL, will name a street for him on President's Day... At least he'll have become president by then.

And a street in Mombasa, Kenya will be named for BO as well.

But a school... now this poses issues. What do you call the mascot? You can throw out names like Warriors, Knights, Chiefs right away... they are too violent, eurocentric or anti-Native American...

It's a conundrum. Perhaps The One can call together his NEA benefactors and have a round table discussion on the issue.

It seems all the schools in the Hempstead school district use a tiger for a mascot. That'll never do now, of course.

How about the 'Saviors' or the 'Lightworkers' instead?
