Isn't this child abuse?

It was a strange Easter at the White House this year. Gay couples started to line up for the first come first serve tickets 36 hours in advance. The right wing press somehow misconstrued this as "crashing" the White House Easter Egg Roll.

In the interest of fairness, to the straight couples, the White House made sure that the first to get tickets would have to wait until the second shift to attend. While the activities are the same on all shifts, the President and First Lady only made an appearance during the first shift.

The gay parents probably lucked out, because the President and First Lady were serenaded by a group of kids from the Katrina ravaged gulf coast. It was a song of praise for Congress, the President and, get this, FEMA. What kind of sick mind came up with this?

At the annual White House
Easter Egg Roll
, children from the stricken Gulf Coast region serenaded
First Lady Laura Bush with a song praising the beleaguered Federal Emergency
Management Agency.

To the tune of Hey Look Me Over, about 100 young children from Louisiana,
Mississippi and Alabama sang:

"Our countrys stood beside us People have sent us aid.
Katrina could not stop us, our hopes will never fade.

Congress, Bush and FEMA People across our land
Together have come to rebuild us and we join them hand-in-hand!

I did not mean that Conservatives are generally stupid; I meant, that stupid persons are generally Conservative. I believe that to be so obvious and undeniable a fact that I hardly think any hon. Gentleman will question it.
