Why are Texans so unpatriotic?

President Obama is going to deliver a speech to students, broadcast on CSPAN, on 8 September. He’s going to “speak directly to the nation’s children and youth about persisting and succeeding in school. The president will challenge students to work hard, set educational goals, and take responsibility for their learning”. OK, sounds harmless enough, and I think it’s a good idea for our president to care about the students.

But not in Texas, apparently. There’s a poll on a College Station radio site that has some odd results.

What are your feelings about the President addressing school children in a speech on September 8th?

I have no problem – 40.6%
Depends on the topic – 17.5%
Wouldn’t let my children see it – 42.0%

Let us leaven their results with the contribution of a horde of godless, international fiends.
