SLU Post-Mortem

From a kid in attendance:

Thank you for coming to speak with us last night.  I’m sorry if it 

wasn’t what you were expecting.  I think for the most part the 

students who weren’t forced to be there enjoyed your humor (I know the 

SLU Republicans and SLU Democrats in attendance did), but the faculty 

here is extremely liberal and, more importantly, I think that both 

they and many of the students were expecting someone a little less 

irreverent and humorous (i.e. someone who would have explained 

federalism the boring way we’ve always heard it).  We’re used to dull 

speakers on this campus (the building they stuck you in is 

particularly notorious for that sort of thing), and because of it the 

crowd that came didn’t really come ready to laugh.
