It's the Boy Scouts' 100th anniversary, but our President Barack Obama has opted to join the ladies of The View rather than speak to the Jamboree. Nice Deb. No Sheeples. Carol's Closet.
I happened to be at Reagan National last week--no sight of Barack's buddy Bill Ayers at Starbucks but the Boy Scouts were coming off planes in impressive numbers.
Many of us have been Girl Scouts, then leaders ourselves, den mothers of Cub Scouts. We've seen the boys off to their first aid meets and campouts, helped with pancake breakfasts and merit badges and listened to the stories of a night or two spent stargazing. The self-reliance and teamwork are life lessons.
When I was a little girl I remember my parents driving us all up in the summers to drop off my older brothers at camp for two weeks. The road wound through the woods and around each bend there'd be another sign with a Scout Law, until we reached our destination.
The Boy Scouts are too manly an enterprise for the Barackstar.
