You Better Sit Down for This Post

Posted by Mark on May 27, 2007

Please be seated. For this exercise, you need to keep your eyeglasses nearby for the headline…and your blood pressure medicine close by for the remainder:

Dartmouth alumni elect conservatives to trustee board

On the surface…the headline gives you the impression, conservatives are making a comeback. And indeed they are….but of course CNN.compost.-being well, CNN.compost– the headline is the beginning and the ending of any fair reporting:

For two decades, Dartmouth College has tried to rein in rowdy fraternities — such as the one that inspired the movie “Animal House” — and make the campus more welcoming to women, minorities and scholars.

Now, some alumni who appreciated the old Dartmouth are pushing back. Football, fraternities, opposition to codes regulating hate speech and a fresh focus on teaching undergraduates top their agenda.

They just can’t help themselves. Liberals CAN NOT and WILL NOT report something without using words that fit THEIR agenda.

Yep…in this post, we learn that electing a conservative makes Dartmouth against minorities, women, and scholars and FOR hate speech.

Unbelievable.

    Well Pat….let’s review your clever repartee shall we? This is an Op/Ed-like blog where the authors (Matt, Mark, and myself)talk politics and current events. We are speaking to the reader….uh…that would be you sunshine. (Queue the soaring music for Pat)

    This just in- my downtrodden existence and my trip to hell has been put on hold.

    Turns out, the whacked out liberals, socialists, and communists have caused such a ruckus and massive overcrowding in Hell, that Mephistopheles has asked me to check in with God and see if he has room.

    In the meantime, every day above ground has been an absolute joy for me.

    Stop by again sometime, your 8th Grade prose are always welcome.
