Following a rehearsal for the annual talent show, teachers expressed their concerns that the mask might be inappropriate and potentially offensive even though the mask was similar to one which Comrade Obama himself wore in a "Saturday Night Live" skit.

When asked by the Oregonian to explain what was offensive about Dru's skit, Principle Powell gave this arguably childish response;
"I won't say why it's inappropriate," he said. "I'm not saying anything to The Oregonian. Why? Because I don't want to."
One can just imagine him sticking his thumbs in his ears with fingers spread outward, sticking out his tongue, and saying, "Mmnnaaahh, ... so there!"
One has to wonder if Dru had decided to perform the skit as Jesus wearing an Obama mask would have been acceptable.
