The Graduation Speaker...Dubya???

Legare graduates from college in a couple of weeks with a double major in Political Science and English. As a matter of fact, his graduation from a prestigious university that we fondly refer to as "the country club of the South" is a mere 24 hours after Lorelai's high school graduation and 200 miles away to boot. In August, Lor will be headed up the road a ways to Clemson and Legare is moving the other direction to his own new found promised land to attend law school at University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. No small accomplishment for either of them to land in their first choice schools....Legare for the second time, having also aimed high when he applied for undergrad.

Lor's commencement will be on the small side while the one up at the club will be a bit more involved....mainly because our state governor, also a graduate of the country club of the South and much to our dismay, a Liberterian-esque Republican who is in his second and thankfully last term (he is NO friend of public siree), made arrangements for George W. Bush to give the commencement address. While I have all the respect in the world for the Office of the President of the United States....well...let's just say I side with those who are dissatisfied with a few things up in Washington, DC, our nation's capital. Legare, a yellow dog Democrat, and his friends hope to hang a banner at the main gate of the campus to declare "Class of 2008....MISSION ACCOMPLISHED." Hank and I will be there and we will be proud of our son's accomplishments. Joined by Lorelai, we'll honor him and his friends and be very very happy but we won't enjoy the speaker.

On the other hand, perhaps it won't be so's possible that I misunderestimate the situation. Ya think??
