    my alma mater is not going to give a bush apparatchik anything but a hard time.
    I’m amazed there were no cream pies.

    Right on!
    Respect is earned, not handed to a treacherous murdering enabling fascist pig like Andy Card.
    I’m sure the School Administration was real proud of awarding that disgusting hack an honorary degree, for what, helping to destroy education in this country, kill 3444+ Americans?
    I’ll bet Joe Biden would have gotten about the same reaction too.

  3. Frrrom the Wiki:
    In March 2004 Card tried to convince Attorney General John D. Ashcroft to reauthorize a domestic surveillance program, which the Justice Department had just determined was illegal. Ashcroft lay ill in an intensive-care unit when Card and White House Counsel Alberto R. Gonzales urged him to sign the papers. Ashcroft refused.
    Pfffft.
    He’s lucky they just boo.
    People on the street should throw garbage at him.

    we should be giving the same treatment to the teevee gnews wherever they go. THEY are the enablers.

    That does my heart good.
    Except for all the flashbulbs going off. Anybody who took a picture of him — I hope your camera breaks.

    Although I despise Andrew Card, I really dislike the lack of civility given in these situations. Why was he invited knowing the sentiment toward him.
