Hall of Sham -OR- Awards For Assholes

Chicago Breaking News...

Growing opposition to Rumsfeld among New Trier grads
December 13, 2010 1:54 PM

A growing chorus of New Trier High School alumni is demanding their alma mater reconsider giving an achievement award to former U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, according to e-mails to the school obtained by the Tribune. But a New Trier official said Rumsfeld would remain among the honorees.

Rumsfeld, who graduated from New Trier in 1950, was one of 10 "outstanding alumni" selected for the school's inaugural Alumni Achievement Awards and Hall of Honor, to be given March 22.

When someone talks about "Chicago Politics" in that way that they do, even though they've not been around it. I ALWAYS pull the Rummy Card. I'd prefer a dozen blatant Blagos to ONE vindictive, self-serving war-criminal bastard like Rumsfeld.

Keep it coming....I responded to your very funny typo, that I must have teleported to another "plant". You were still right, even with that.

How is your local reporter friend's
wife? I have often wondered since
your party some weeks back.

Take care during this "bitter season" (double meaning, politics
and weather).
