Being in College Doesn't Mean You're Smart

Here's an interesting little story about the student newspaper at Colorado State University.

It seems the paper ran an editorial, in response to the recent incident at a Florida university where a student was Tasered by security after disrupting a forum with U.S. Sen. John Kerry.

The editorial was only 4 words: "Taser this ... F*** Bush."

Only they spelled out that one particular word.

And now they're in hot water. The editor of the student paper, David McSwane, says that this was all about freedom of speech.

To me, it's all about far-left folks not having the capacity to (a) fully understand issues they protest against, or (b) formulate an intelligent response to those issues.

All over the Internet I have read reactions to the Florida Taser story, and I can't tell you how many people use it as an example of how evil President Bush is, and how the GOP is violating our civil rights.

But, as far as I can tell, Bush, nor the GOP in general, had anything to do with the Florida incident. How they can even say that astounds me, given the fact that a Democrat was the one up on stage.

It's another example of people looking to blindly criticize the administration, so they use incidents completely unrelated to the administration to do so.

It makes liberals look stupid, at least to me, when they blame everything from the Florida incident to wildfires to the Jena Six debacle on Bush and the Republicans, when in fact there is no association.

And, as the Colorado story proves, it also shows that getting into college doesn't mean you're smart.

So, just to make sure the dopes at the Colorado understand: F**k you, f**k Colorado State U, and f**k David McSwane.

I guess by the far left's standards, that's intelligent political discourse.
