Politics and Commencement

Monday, May 22, 2006
Via Gateway an interesting story on the socalled commencement speech of Lacy Clay D-MO at the University of Missouri last weekend. Apparently his Bushbashing anti war talk did not go over well with the student body. Why do these guys think these kids want to listen to this crap?

They live in a bubble? They still think they're kids? Righteousness is more important than courtesy? Lord knows.

I wonder how much newspaper coverage these fiascos get. But the word will spread anyways. I expect this will be a topic of conversation at more than one dinner table in MO.

Because for them it's 1968, Nixon is in office, we're fighting in Vietnam, and every college student hates the government and wants to have a revolution, if he can just remember where he left that last joint....

Well it seems there are some students in Boston who would agree.
