Although I'll never understand how enough force could gather behind the idea of inviting Karl Rove – recently named "The Worst Person Ever" – to the University of Iowa's college graduation, I'm glad to see not everyone was pleased about it.
Some were upset at the protesters, and while I concur that it was disruptive, as one post articulated, If you pay a clown 40 grand, you should expect to see a circus.
Also, maybe I'm the only one, but I had NO IDEA that colleges pay this much for speakers. Forty-thousand dollars? I'm pretty sure the most we've ever gotten for a college speaking gig is, oh maybe $300. Can someone pull some strings, please?
