Hey, remember how stupid Bush was?


Of course you do ... and if you ever forget, the media will still remind you once in a while (if they ever take a break from telling you how stupid Sarah Palin and the Tea Party People are.) While Bush was in office, every time he made a mistake was an opportunity for the media to point it out and say how stupid he was.

Anyway, in case you didn't know, Obama just had the oval office remodeled (I guess it was really in bad shape so we had to spend a kazillion bucks to take care of it.)

A mistake has been made in the Oval Office makeover that goes beyond the beige.

President Obama's new presidential rug seemed beyond reproach, with quotations from Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy and the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. woven along its curved edge.

"The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice." According media reports, this quote keeping Obama company on his wheat-colored carpet is from King.

Except it's not a King quote. The words belong to a long-gone Bostonian champion of social progress. His roots in the republic ran so deep that his grandfather commanded the Minutemen at the Battle of Lexington.

For the record, Theodore Parker is your man, President Obama.

Just add it to the list of "If Bush had done it...."
