Re: Jeering at Bush

Sorry Nilly, but I disagree entirely. Sitting around and bloviating for laughs among our kind is one thing. I’m sure it happens at the offices of The Free Press, and that doesn’t bother me in the least. But this is the public face of Democrats on campus, and it should be held to a much higher standard than backroom banter. They hate Bush, and that’s their right. But it’s shameful to their party that their formal message would be so poisonous. The same would be true if, during the Clinton Presidency, the College Republicans announced a party to jeer the Commander-in-Chief during his SOTU. I don’t think it’s too much to ask.

I don’t know what you mean when you say we should “allow others to speak their minds.” My argument is entirely moral.

But I do have to thank you for putting the idea of a T&T in my head. Think I’ll go have one…
