Condi Rice was named this year's commencement speaker at Boston College, which is a Jesuit University for those who may be unaware.
Now naturally liberals are up in arms about her being selected because of her role in the war in Iraq. Interestingly, conservative also snub her because she is "mildly pro-choice."
As usual it all comes back to abortion for the conservatives who seemingly still have their head in the sand (or perhaps the flag?) about the war (and in fairness, many liberals have it in the sand on abortion too).
Why wouldn't people just protest her IDEAS instead of protesting her right to speak. The media's going to cover this event--give them something to cover.
The older I get the more I'm convinced that people really think way too simplistically most of the time.
