Normally I’m not big on naming schools after somebody who may end up as the most expensive failure and affront to the constitution in national political history, but this match is simply perfect:
President Obama’s name would grace a new Prince George’s County elementary school a few miles from the White House under a proposal scheduled for a vote tonight, barely five months after he took office.

Putting an Obama school in a place called “Marlboro” is a little like building Bill Clinton High in Big Bone Lick.
The new Obama school is really going all out with their sign, too:
