The Corner

M.O.B. Rules

This past weekend, the Dallas chapter of a

national outfit called Mothers Against Bush held a get-together in a city

park. It got nice press coverage in the Dallas Morning News, which ran a

charming photo of a toddler whacking a punching bag with President Bush’s

image on it. Today our paper has an editorial on the topic, in which we

reprint the

photograph. We said that teaching your little

children to disrespect the President of the United States like that, no

matter who the president is, is wrong. Let them learn partisanship when they

are old enough to understand politics, but let them learn patriotism while

they are still innocent. That poor child in the photo has no idea what she’s

doing. But I bet her mother does. For shame.
