Educated to imbecility... U of Wa doesn't deserve to have Pappy as alum.

The liberal, hypocritical elite has spoken again, and loudly. The University of Washington student senate voted to reject a memorial for Congressional Medal of Honor winner "Pappy" Boyington, due to his service as a Marine. Yep, because he defended the parents who failed to train these snotty-nosed kids in decency, respect and any notion of honor, they decided that he was undeserving of any appreciation for his sacrifice.

Some of the quotes from minutes of the meeting are: "Jill Edwards said she didn't believe a member of the Marine Corps was an example of the sort of person UW wanted to produce." Then, there was the erudite Ashley Miller who commented that "many monuments at UW already commemorate rich white men."

Uh, Pappy was rich?? Where was that in the motion to commemorate him? Do these intellectuals really have to conjure up this stuff or do they keep the standard talking points handy? Do these two sound like Woman's Studies majors or what????

The solution is simple. The taxpayers who do appreciate Pappy's courage can simply refuse to subsidize these brats anymore, through tuition supplements and federally insured loans. While they have a 'right' to speak their minds, they don't have a right to have it funded/subsidized by taxpayers. And the University can establish sufficient academic standards requiring a rudimentary knowledge of American history and the price of our freedoms, which these senators abuse every time they open their mouths.

Here are the senator's email if you care to write them and express respectfully why you disagree with their position:

UPDATE: A resolution has been offered demanding Jill Edwards apologize for her remarks about Marines and that she be required to familarize herself with the history of Pappy Boyington by reading his book "Baa Baa Black Sheep", under penalty of losing her senate seat. The sad thing is, she's having to be forced to apologize.

Libs simply don't know any better or how to admit their mistakes whith being forced I guess...
