cheney allergy

Students on a college campus are protesting about the invitation for de facto vice president Dick Cheney to speak at their school's commencement later this spring. These students and some of the school's professors want the invitation rescinded. One professor said that the school places "a heavy emphasis on personal honesty and integrity in all we do," and that "Cheney just doesn't measure up."

The school? Nope, not Harvard or Swarthmore or some other liberal Eastern college. It is BRIGHAM YOUNG UNIVERSITY in UTAH. Yep, even students -- self-described conservatives -- at Brigham Young, in that most Republican of bastions, Utah, can't stomach Dick Cheney. In the first week, over 2300 students, professors, alumni, and members of the Mormon church have signed the petition asking the school to rescind the invitation

You have to be a pretty corrupt Republican to attract protests in Utah...
