The Huffington Post reports that the conservative pundit was invited, and then uninvited by New York's Fordham University's campus Republican club to speak after Fordham President Joseph McShane expressed dismay at her selection. "To say that I am disappointed with the judgment of the College Republicans would be a tremendous understatement," said McShane in an email. "There are many people who can speak to the conservative point of view with integrity and conviction, but Ms. Coulter is not among them." What is he getting at? Likely Coulter's recent reference to the President as a "retard" among other things. Nonetheless, he said he would not ban her appearance, hoping instead to convince Fordham's chapter of the CRs to cancel her speech on their own. It's an application of social pressure that appears to have worked. Following McShane's disapproval, the CRs rescinded her invitation and asked the campus to "forgive" their "error."
