Ponnuru whines in Time about how over the top he finds the excitement about Barack Obama:
"But historical precedent can justify only so much...Naming your newborn Barack is, at best, right on the line. Renaming your kids' elementary school after him, as people in Hempstead, N.Y., did? Wait until he's got a presidential library."
I fooled around at the Google and could not find any similar please asking Texas A&M to slodown when they created the "George W.Bush School of Government and Public Service." There's no record of a note of caution to Midland, when it named it's elementary school after George W. Bush. The town of Stockton in California managed to build the "George Bush Elementary School" without a single warning from Ramesh,...
I think you get the idea. In fact, I'm sure you too are very surprised that there are not more, many more, institutions of higher learning named after George W. Bush.
Writers on the right are generally lazy and rarely interested in facts. But what is really galling is to see the ads next to Ponuru's article. In them, Time tries to pawn off the Obama memorabilia it's trying to sell. The income of course will go not to Obama, but to Time, helping it pay the salary of one Ramesh Ponnuru.
Remember Bush selling pictures of himself looking concerned on Air Force I on 9/11? The income from those pictures went to the Republican Party.
