Um…apparently Minority Leader of the United States Senate Addison Mitchell McConnell III is becoming the new President of Columbia?
Which is more of a joke: the comments or the club itself?

When a Minuteman speech was interrupted by a fire bell at Georgetown, it turned out to be a literal false alarm. Not so at Michigan State Law School recently, where Tom Tancredo, a Republican Congressman from Colorado who has become a sort of anti-illegal-immigration lightning rod, was forced to stop speaking when student activists twice sounded the alarm […]
