I spilled my water when I read this.
Student GOP Group Lures Big Name to Campus — A smartly dressed and enthusiastic crowd of Amherst students turned out to hear former U.S. Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) speak at Johnson Chapel on Feb. 12. Brown’s talk was sponsored by the Amherst College Republicans, in an event marking the group’s revival.
There was not of course a GOP on campus when I was there. Nor would I have joined it or wanted to create it. But for the People’s Republic of Amherst, this is quite a thing. Or maybe it’s a way for the college to say they have diverse ideas – sort of like the way they claim _____ (insert favorite canard here).
