California Governor booed during graduation speech

It seems that California's Governor Arnold Schwartzenegger was recently booed and jeered throughout his speech at a recent college graduation ceremony.

Now I don't always agree with many political stands taken by elected officials, but I have to sympathize with the Governor on this one. A graduation commencement ceremony is supposed to be about the graduates, not the speaker. When a formal celebration ceremony on behalf of the students is disturbed and interrupted continually it is an insult to all the students who worked hard and deserve a brief moment of celebration in their honor.

Shame on the crowds. It sounds like it wasn't necessarily the students themselves who were disruptive.
