Because a handful of snotty, pucker-assed wealthy liberals and their mentally malformed children objected to the appearance of Karl Rove as the graduation speaker at Choate, Mr. Rove has agreed to appear at the school for a speaking engagement next month instead.
Rove was quoted in the New Haven Register this morning:
"I would not want 12 minutes of remarks to be used as an excuse by a small group to mar what should be a wonderful day of celebration for the members of the 2008 graduating class and their families."
Naturally, this is a classy move, because if we know anything, we know that when self-righteous liberals, who don't give a damn about wrecking a graduation ceremony with what they consider to be a morally just protest, will stop at nothing to attempt to turn the commencement address into a circus. Most of these protesters would have been outsiders, too.
We'll still get to see these morons protest. Rove's speaking engagement there will take place on February 11th. And then we'll get to see the losers who would have disrupted the commencement address. My prediction: over 100 will show up, but only 5 will be taking a day off from work.
