The teacher said, "Let's begin by reviewing some American History. Who said 'Give me Liberty , or give me Death'?"
She saw a sea of blank faces, except for Little Johnny, a bright Navajo Indian boy who had his hand up. “Patrick Henry, 1775," he said.
Who said, "Government of the People, by the People, for the People, shall not perish from the Earth?"
Again, no response except from Little Johnny, "Abraham Lincoln, 1863."
The teacher snapped at the class, "Class, you should be ashamed, Little Johnny knows more about history than you do."
She heard a loud whisper: "Screw the Indians."
"Who said that?" she demanded.
Little Johnny put his hand up, "General George Armstrong Custer, 1876."
At that point, a student in the back said, "I think I'm gonna puke."
The teacher glares around and asks, "All right! Now who said that!?"
Again, Little Johnny says, "George Bush to the Japanese Prime Minister, 1991."
Now furious, another student yells, "Oh yeah? Suck this!"
Little Johnny jumps out of his chair waving his hand and shouts to the teacher,
"Bill Clinton, to Monica Lewinsky, 1997!"
Now with almost mob hysteria someone said "You little shit. If you say anything else, I'll kill you."
Little Johnny frantically yells at the top of his voice, "Michael Jackson to the kid testifying against him,2004."
The teacher fainted.
And as the class gathered around the teacher on the floor, someone said, "Oh shit, we're screwed no matter what happens here!"
Little Johnny said quietly, "That would be the American Voters, November 4, 2008.
