Eating crow

Arizona State president Michael Crow tries to fix the insult his PR department flung at Barack Obama. Only calculated disrespect can explain why ASU would withhold an honorary degree. I mean, who here really thinks an ASU degree has so much special cachet that it needs a principled defense?

But Crow doesn't try very hard. He only names something after Obama, and while it's a scholarship program, that's easily undone as soon as Obama's commencement speech is done.

If I were in the White House, I'd call Crow up and tell him that Barack has a conflict on May 13. That's a polite way to say go to hell.

That's just me, though. I'm not as sweet as Barack is.
