He Also Lost the Vote for Prom Queen

Providing even more evidence that people are growing increasingly disenchanted with the Hopium™ habit and looking forward to real Change in 2012, schools just aren’t interested in seeing Teh One or hearing the unicorn tales that he loves to spin anymore. The youth are supposed to be the Left’s big target (can I say that word?) audience, but for some reason schools just aren’t interested this year in inviting Obama to use them for backdrops. (Maybe they just can’t afford to power his omnipresent teleprompters during these tight times.) According to a leaked secret White House memo (H/T: AllahPundit, Hot Air)

CBS — The competition was extended from the February 25 deadline until Friday, March 11, after few schools met the original application deadline. CBS News has learned a White House Communications Office internal memo dated February 22 noted “a major issue with the Commencement Challenge.” “As of yesterday we had received 14 applications and the deadline is Friday,” the memo said. The memo also urged recipients to, “please keep the application number close hold.” A follow-up memo on February 28 reported receipt of 68 applications. Noting the competition among more than 1,000 schools last year, the memo said, “Something isn’t working.” It called on staffers to ask “friendly congressional, gubernatorial and mayoral offices” to encourage schools to apply. “We should also make sure the Cabinet is pushing the competition out to their lists,” the memo said. The note reiterated, “We do not want the actual application number out there (we didn’t release the number of applications we received last year until after the submission period)-so folks should not use it in their pitches.”

You can just feel the butthurt oozing out of that memo, can’t you? My heart bleeds for them… or, at least, it would if I wasn’t afraid of the condition placing me in front of a death panel. (NSFW image below cut.)
