High-school presidential scholars recently handed the president a letter that read:

“As members of the Presidential Scholars class of 2007, we have been told that we represent the best and brightest of our nation. Therefore, we believe we have a responsibility to voice our convictions. We do not want America to represent torture. We urge you to do all in your power to stop violations of the human rights of detainees, to cease illegal renditions and to apply the Geneva Convention to all detainees, including those designated enemy combatants.”

The president is an embarrassment to all but himself and not even the nations kids are willing to pretend otherwise anymore.

Thanks kids. I wish I could share my smile.
