That whirring sound

As I type these words, President-elect Obama is here on the Fairfax campus of George Mason University giving a major economics address. Read Eric Sweeney writes:

That whirring sound you hear is George Mason spinning in his grave as Obama speaks at GMU!

I’d be curious to know why he’s speaking here. The speech is invitation only. I was told it will be attended by "dignitaries–governors and mayors, politicians." Maybe they should call them undignataries. Having coffee this morning in the student center, Michael Bloomberg, mayor of New York, was one table over. He did not have his hand out but I’m sure he’s been practicing, getting ready for the Obama administration. I resisted the urge to ask him about this disgraceful behavior.
