Ann Coulter on the New School Graduation Ceremony
Mike Rappaport

Ann does a number on Jean Rohe, the New School student who insulted John McCain at graduation.

Update: And don't miss Brian Leiter's defense of heckling -- or should I say this heckling.  It all seems to depend on who is talking.  My favorite line from his excerpt of a student's speech:

Ignorant, closed-minded people would not have been able to do what we did. We chose to be in New York for our years of higher education for the very reason that we would be challenged to listen to opposing viewpoints each and every day and to deal with that challenge in a nonviolent manner

Here is a news alert: New York City, especially Manhattan where the New School is, is not filled with opposing viewpoints.  One can count the conservatives on one hand.  I know at least two of them, and they don't report very much tolerance of differing political views -- except the kind of tolerance shown by the New School students.

Although a small minority, there are thousands of conservatives and libertarians in New York City. Take all the good catholic folks, who can't write like Peggy Noonan but read her faithfully. Or the new SecTreas Henry Paulson, who donated to Bush, and to Dick Zimmer in his run against Torricelli. Or my neighbor, a class action attorney who secretly donates to republican candidates.

As one who has worked in financial services in NYC since the 80s, I can assure you there is a critical mass of loathing for tax-and-spenders in general, and for Hillary and Elliot in particular. But most conservatives and libertarians in New York are competing in the marketplace and investing in their families, so they tend to fly under the radar. Like other conservatives and libertarians in other regions.

I assume that security procedures will now be tightened, which is probably a good thing.
