University responds to College Republicans' acts
Sunday, December 7, 2003


In response to a controversial Web site showing photographs of a party involving several members of the College Republicans at Penn State, University administrators have taken a number of initiatives over the past several days.

On the day the Web site was discovered, University officials sent a message to the chairman of the student organization, Brian Battaglia, asking him voluntarily to remove the photos of party goers in KKK costumes, blackface and other distasteful images, and to apologize.

The group removed the photos, but their president has since defended his free speech rights to have such a party theme and Web site and has said that those who want to stifle that free speech are leftist radicals. In fact, University officials have heard from many Republican leaders and a broad range of community members who believe the student behavior, conducted in an off-campus apartment, and the private Web site was very inappropriate. The stated opinion of the president of the College Republicans is clearly in the minority.

Since this issue developed, University administrators have met with undergraduate student government leaders and with students representing many of the groups targeted in the party theme and Web site. University officials have met with members of the College Republicans responsible for the Web site and party.

President Graham B. Spanier has sent a message to approximately 60,000 students and others about the College Republican Web site about the matter.

1. Birds of a feather flocking together?
College Republicans are smarmy little creeps that birthed such cancerous little nodes on the body politic as Grover Norquist, Ralph Reed, Floyd Brown and many others. Lieberman enlisting their help is one last desperation gasp for his Democratic credibility.

5. It's in the Republican Party's interests to see Joe Lieberman re-elected.
Joe has been a loyal supporter of the failed and disasterous Iraqi War/occupation. He gives them a high profile bi-partisan cover that helps to undermine Democrat's opposition to the centerpiece of the Bush legacy.

6. I'm going to assume this is a rhetorical question, and just tell you
what I think:

Joe's a desperate a**hole, who'll do anything *underline* ANYTHING to win. The correct question is -- WHY DOES HE SEEM TO WANT TO WIN AT ANY COST? Therein lies the REAL answer to the rhetorical question posed in the OP.

7. Is there a link to a reputable source for Lieberman using them?
We know the College Republicans have probles - that's not in doubt. I am not a fan of Lieberman, but I seriously doubt that a man running in the Democratic primary is using the College Republicans.
