How does 'Our Obama' sound? 'Our Lady' is truly a blasphemous attack upon the Blessed Virgin Mary and all that she means to us (considering Obama's push for the FOCA, refusal to sign the Born Alive Act, federal funding for embryonic stemcell research, Conscience Law revision considerations, etc.). Notre Dame has hit a double with Mr. Obama - he will soon receive an honorary doctor of law degree and give the principle commencement address on May 17th.
I've taken liberty with the Notre Dame 'Fight Song' - see what you think...
Rally sons of Notre Obama,
Sing his glory, and sound his fame
Raise his Gold and Blue,
And cheer with voices true,
Rah! Rah! For Notre Obama.
We will fight in every game
Strong of heart and true to his name.
We will ne'er forget him
And we'll cheer him ever,
Loyal to Notre Obama.
Cheer, cheer for Old Notre Obama
Wake up the echoes cheering his name,
Send the volley cheer on high,
Shake down the thunder from the sky,
What though the odds be great or small
Old Notre Obama will win over all,
While his loyal sons are marching
Onward to Victory
