The Scourge of Student Council Must Be Stopped!

Remember those student government types in college who took themselves so seriously that they thought they were actual elected officials? Well, this story is the exact opposite:

For months, Andrew Shirvell, an assistant attorney general for Michigan, has been writing the blog “Chris Armstrong Watch,” devoted to attacking the University of Michigan’s gay student assembly president with homophobic and other horrible slurs. What is wrong with him?
Shirvell, who faced an outraged Anderson Cooper on CNN last night, is a deeply conservative Christian who claims that he has the right to say whatever he wants outside of work. Which may be true, but his campaign against a gay college student might have veered into the category of harassment, and at the very least, is as sad and pathetic as pretty much anything an adult can do under the name of “political activism.”

Yes, it’s a high-ranking government official- in the actual government- who felt his valuable time was best spent attacking a 20-year-old college student. That remind anyone else of the plot of “Karate Kid III,” where it’s a wealthy businessman dedicating himself to destroying a teenage karate champion?
