The Real Sporer: A few good Democrats................

Excerpted from this post at The Real Sporer
.........still exist and they are at Drake University. Around 4:00 today I stopped at RPI to find a gaggle of young lefties, bright eyed and bushy tailed, actually protesting, well, me. Seriously, signs that read things like "Sporer = Hate", "Sporer = Fake Morals", and some other equally loving statements were splattered on homemade posters all over East 9th Street by about 15 Drake Democrats. ... Well, not surprisingly, the kids didn't fair very well in the clash of wits, which isn't really saying a whole lot for me. After all, if a 47 year old trial lawyer, who coached debate for a hobby, and majored in philosophy before serving as three term county chairman in Iowa's most contentious political environment can't outwit adolescents, then he'd better find a whole new life, eh? ... There was none of that name calling and emotional bombast that the Baby Boom and older Gen X lefty types usually employ, as is well evidenced all over the Republican blogs. The kids actually wanted to argue the merits of stem cell research. While they are both misguided and mistaken, the young Donkeys exercised their First Amendment rights in way that would make Adams, Jefferson, Hamilton and Madison proud.
