GW student campaign: Charlie Sheen for commencement speaker
The George Washington University Class of 2010 celebrated its commencement by listening to Michelle Obama's call to community service. The Class of 2011 has already booked new York Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg.
But who will inspire the Class of 2012? A group of GWU students on Facebook have started a group to campaign for their speaker of choice: Charlie Sheen.
(For anyone who hasn't logged onto Twitter today or turned on the TV in several days, the star of "Two and a Half Men" has been doing some things lately that might make him undependable as a commencement speaker.)
The Charlie Sheen for Commencement Speaker GWU 2012 had more than 120 members Wednesday afternoon. According to a wall posting by the group administrator, one student has pledged to "do everything possible to graduate on time if this would happen."
The GW Hatchet first spotted the Facebook group and has deemed the campaign "clearly a satirical ploy."
