Andy Card Honored By Being Booed Off Stage
Andrew Card, who was George W. Bush's Chief of Staff for five years, was booed off the stage by students and faculty when he was announced at the UMass graduating ceremony on Friday. Students wore placards denouncing Card and even campus administrators sitting on the stage participated, holding up signs that said "Card: No Honor, No Degree."
Have a look… The raucous demonstration starts at about the halfway point of this video:
I suppose the leadership in Amherst thought it would be a good idea to mar the most important day in these students' academic lives by honoring someone who enabled the lies and politics that led to the Iraq war -- I'm sure they know better now.
