Nixon, Bush, Bush, BULLSNOT
This just in: The bullsnot started even before the news got out! To hell* with the chief flack and ass kisser at OSU.
(*Outrage not reflective of ER's opinion on said p.o.s. flack's actual immortal soul).
O'Collegian Staff Writer
A university spokesman threatened censorship of a Daily O’Collegian story earlier this week about President George Bush’s plans to speak at spring graduation ceremonies, saying the story would jeopardize OSU’s chances of receiving the high-profile visit.
Gary Shutt, director of communication services, told an O’Collegian reporter Monday evening that he would call the director of OSU’s journalism school and ask him to stop the newspaper from running any story addressing rumors about Bush or confirming the president’s visit.
Read all about the total, unadulterated bullsnot. Fire the flack. Today.
Late yesterday, somebody came by my desk and said, "Hey, ER, the president is speaking at your alma mater's commencement!"
"The president of what?" I replied.
"The United States!"
Nixon in '74. Bush the First in '90. Bush the Junior in '06.
I am so proud.
Everybody I know figures he picked OSU -- plus the military colleges he's speaking at -- because they're very red campuses and will be very friendly.
That they will.
In Oklahoma, even Dems, for the most part, are respectful to a fault. To a fault.
The facts are in the comments.
Say, will they give Bush Babby an honerary degree from OSU? You have a degree in common with him;. Wow!
SUPPORT STUDENT JOURNALISTS' AUTONOMY!
Is Shrub just plain stupid or didn't someone tell him that three months after Nixon spoke at OSU that he was almost impeached and had to resign? And did't they mention that five months after his Daddy Bush gave his speech at OSU he lost hte election to Clinton?
With that track record, what do you think will have to the Shrub within the next three to five months?
It would seem that he is tempting lady luck by speaking at OSU.
I here by name this phenomena the OSU Curse of the Presidential Commencement Speech.
Shit, Shutt shoulda shut his own.
I want to know why he's not already fired. What a horse's ass. Very Bush-like strategory, Shutt used. Hell, if the O'Collegian HAD jeopardized the visit, that would have been a damned good story, too.
F--k him. I grow to hate higher education more and more. It's full of inhuman people who mess with real people trying to just make better of themselves. I hate the smell of what OSU has become and this is just the latest of the bullshit.
I spit in the general direction of Stillwater, Oklahoma. And you can put THAT on your cheese fries.
But I love OSU the same way I love this country. It's the assholes in charge that make me want to puke, not the country, and not the university, themselves.
However, I'm pretty sure I would not be able to behave myself during his speech, and my students deserve better from their graduation than to see their professor Behaving Badly.
Ergo, I will hope it's televised and be cranky by my damn self.
And let's see: I hate government? Sweetie, you're off on your Talking Points. No, see Libbles LOVE big Gummint. No wait. That's obviously Your folks, what with what's happened over the last six years...Next.
I hate religion? Nope. Just your silly misinterpretation of it.
I hate everything and everybody? Yer still not reading the Memo: we Love Terrorists, see?
Myself and my boring life? Hell, you don't live in Portland, do you?
No need for comments? Aw Hell no: Plenty of need for comments.
