What can a morally bereft war criminal possibly have to say to young people going out into the world?
How to "Sex-Up" information to suit your self-serving aims? How to pander to Fascists? How to start a war?
Hopefully Colby will re-consider this very poorly thought-out choice for a commencement speaker that can only tarnish its good name!

You can tell the Repugs are desperate every time they resurrect old Ronnie Reagan. My response to one of the sappy

You certainly held your own and made some important points at the first Debate, and you may have won, but with all due respects, we need a LOT more change in our foreign policy than what you spoke of last night.

In this new Digital age, after CBS doctors McCain's Gaffe, I wonder if we should ever be able to trust anything the Mainstream Media tells us again!
