Creepy or cute?

Posted by Lissa on September 30, 2008

My vote’s solidly for creepy, but that surprises no one:

The sad thing is, it could easily have been cute.  Line up a whole bunch of kids in Obama gear and have them sing “My Country Tis of Thee” or “This Land is Your Land” and it’d be adorable.  But there’s a difference between singing about America and singing about, and to, a politician.  Barack Obama is a man, not a deity; do you think those kids know it? 

For the Obama fans who read this blog — I’m sorry, I know there hasn’t been much for you here lately.  But, truly — if you had groups of children singing to and about John McCain, personally, or George Bush, personally, wouldn’t you think those parents were brainwashing their kids?  Wouldn’t you find it creepy?

(I’ve seen this at three or four different places already, but I think I saw it at Michelle’s first.  Confederate Yankee doesn’t think it’s exactly grassroots.)
