Ah, the next generation of Republicans… what can I say? They aren’t Millicent Fenwick, or even Nelson Rockefeller. I thought that each generation was supposed to grow up and reject the values of the dominant culture, but unfortunately there seems to be a faction that’s rebelling against the wrong people.

At a time when most activists on college campuses are doing real work to combat the problems in the world, this kind of inflammatory and attention-grabbing stunt strikes me as even more ridiculous. If they’re trying to point out problems with affirmative action programs, they’ve done the opposite. If they’re trying to recruit intelligent young people who want to work to change the world so that affirmative action programs are no longer necessary, they’re not going to succeed with this kind of pointless media-whoring.
