Jindal to deliver commencement address, scare off students

Posted By on Thu, Mar 5, 2009 at 11:34 PM

Loyola announced its decision to host Our Bobby as the university's commencement speaker in May. Now one student is circulating a petition to get the guy off stage. A per the Loyola weekly the Maroon:

(The goal is) just enough to let people know that I’m not the only one not OK with this, and if the change doesn’t occur at all, if Bobby Jindal is still the speaker at the graduation ceremony, then I just won’t attend,” she said.

Fantastic. Should this petition serve its purpose and succeed, Jindal will have forced at least one graduate from their own ceremony. In their place? Cardboard cutouts of Michael J. Fox from "Family Ties." All according to plan.
