President Bush protest at Oklahoma State
My alma mater, Oklahoma State, landed President Bush for its graduation-day speech. (read here) That’s the first president we’ve had to give a speech since the other Bush. For our graduation, I think we had a veterinarian who performed the first blind-folded horse castration.
Anyway, already the Young Democrats on campus are organizing a protest and so-called Democrats are coming out of the woodworks, saying “we need to show Bush he is not fully supported in Oklahoma and not everybody here supports the war in Iraq.” Now I’m not a big-city lawyer or anything, but the last place you want to protest President Bush is outside an Oklahoma State graduation. Get this, 77 Oklahoma counties voted for Bush and there are maybe 2,000 anti-Bush folks in the whole state. A good portion of OSU grads grew up on farms and have Republican blood. With that said, don’t be surprised to hear about a bunch of Okie Democrats with broken legs after a group of masked cowboys beat the crap out of them. I’m all about free speech. Hell, I might even hold a sign at an anti-Bush protest. But I wouldn’t do it at an OSU graduation.
