Finally Some Good UVA News

This year has been an embarrassing mess in C-Ville with the whole kerfuffle involving Fauxahantas’ buddy Theresa Sullivan.

Finally some news that makes this Wahoo not hang his head in shame

A University of Virginia spokeswoman says President Barack Obama will not be at the university when he comes to Charlottesville on Wednesday. In a statement released Friday, it was confirmed that the university declined the president’s request to speak at UVA.

UVA says the Obama campaign requested the use of one of two outdoor venues – the Amphitheater or the Harrison-Small Library plaza. The university declined the request for a number of reasons including class cancellations, which UVA estimates could be more than 186 classes on the second day of school. The other main reason is they would have to take on the full cost of security, and because of university policy and their federal and state tax exempt status, they would have to offer the same opportunity to the other candidate so as not to show favor for either candidate.

As is his MO (no, not her, the traditional meaning. Though come to think of it…) he wanted to invite himself over and allow you to briefly gaze upon his grandeur and through his munificent benevolence graciously let you pick up the entire tab.

What a guy.

    So Obama is looking for handouts while on the campaign trail, eh? That’s good news.
