What Columbians Are Saying About The American Troop Withdrawal

Though we’ve already somewhat slyly commented on President Obama’s recent withdrawal of American troops from Iraq, we’ve decided that the event deserves a more thorough discussion. The U.S. has maintained a presence in Iraq since 2003, a.k.a. when most current undergrads were still in elementary and middle school. This war has dominated America’s foreign attention […]

Dems and Repubs Spar on the Abolition of Public Education

This slice of relevance provided by Wikimedia Commons Sarah Camiscoli is a shoe-leather journalist! She sat in on the College Dems vs College Republicans final debate of the year, and everyone yelled a lot.

LectureHop: Democrats, Republicans, and the Citizens United

The Columbia Political Union hosted another in its series of debates between the Columbia Democrats and Republicans. Senior Junior Political Correspondent Derek Huang was there. Ah, debate: an experience normally associated with eager high-schoolers who take themselves too seriously. Last night’s debate, though, involved a different type of hyper-argumentative youth. Last night’s debate between the […]

LectureHop: The Health Care Debate

Last night’s Columbia Political Union Healthcare debate boasted no special format: the soothing power of the free market versus humanity and logical responsibility. Their respective groupies cheered, scoffed and even engaged in some raucous Joe Wilson-ery.  More valuable than watching the news, less valuable than personally investigating the issues, but more time-effective than either – […]

Campus Dems Urge Constructive Dialogue, Excoriate Protest Groups

Proving that even middle grounds can be staked forcefully, the Campus Democrats released a statement lambasting the recent Gaza protests on campus, accusing both camps of harmful divisiveness. They urged dialogue instead of separate protests and unveiled their plan to cosponsor, along with CIRCA, the College Republicans, Hillel, Turath, and the Chaplain’s Office, a “community […]

Dems Discover Big Posters

And here Bwog thought that Barack Obama’s victory would satiate campus liberalism for at least a month.

Bwog mostly loves them for being put in blatantly no-poster zones.  Dems Lead Activist Kate O’Gorman told […]

Dems In Virginia

Bwog’s James Downie checks back in from Virginia. LEESBURG, VA. – If you’re going to knock on doors for a candidate, you will rapidly learn how much you’re willing to work for that candidate. 6 hours of walking tests not only one’s feet and shoes, but also the ability to sell a shtick again and […]
