The article seems to indicate that the request for the superintendent's resignation came from some member of the public at an open meeting. I suppose I could go to a meeting and request that the President, the Pope, the Queen of England or the Man in the Moon step down, but I doubt I'd get much press coverage.
These feeble-minded people are upset because they feel (not "think," of course,) that due obeisance has not been shown the Pharaoh Obama: he that causeth the fields to bear grain, the sun to travel in its appointed course, and before whom the wisdom of Nations is as naught.

1. Obama decided to give a completely harmless address to the nation's students, just as many presidents before him have done.
2. Glenn Beck got some not-so-intelligent troglodytes all riled up about it, so that it became a big controversy for no reason.
3. Anyone who DIDN'T show the speech was then assumed to be one of the not-so-intelligent troglodytes, which made their decision much more controversial in communities that were more supportive of Obama.
I agree that this guy shouldn't have to resign over this. But if you want to understand why these people are pissed off, it has nothing to do with them worshipping Obama and everything to do with them disliking the idiots who worship Glenn Beck.

I can't. This is important.
