Notre Dame Commencement Open Thread

If I'm reading the schedule right, the ceremonies begin at 2:00pm Eastern. The President will be speaking some time after that. Police have already started arresting protesters and I'm sure you can imagine what the Lefty response to that would have been if Booosh had done it.

I've already said what I have to say about a nominally Catholic university honoring a pro-abortion speaker. Barring any truly unusual disruption today, I expect the whole thing to be "old news"--even for Catholics--by next week. Notre Dame is going to want to put this behind it as is the President. The media will oblige.

All the cable news networks are covering commencement, but if you're stuck at a computer and you want to see Obama's speech, it will be livecast at the Notre Dame website.
