But that aside, listen to this conversation that takes place between a high school teacher in Salisbury, North Carolina and one of her students, and be as frightened as I am for our republic's future:

Here's the video. Prepare to be shocked by the vapidity:
"That's what I'm sayin'. You know. But, as a social studies teacher I cannot allow you to slander any President in here, past or present."
Future Presidents, however ...
She reserves the right to slander Obama's opponent until the cows come home.
