Boo-birds At The Governor's Commencement Address

I guess everything is political now. Governor Schwarzenegger gave a commencement address at his alma mater this week and was booed during the entire speech. Whatever happened to civility? to decency? to manners?

As Kimberly said here, "What bothers me is that public manners have devolved to the point where young men and women attending a rite of passage as momentous as a college graduation can act like children." And what were they booing? As Captain Ed said, "...what are they protesting? The fact that Arnold has called a special election for a direct democratic vote on issues that the legislature has refused to address...."

In fact, Captain Ed's post couldn't be shorter or more to the point. Go read the whole thing.
