College Republicans - the organization that hatched the political careers of Jack Abramoff, Grover Norquist and Ralph Reed - are up in arms here in Minnesota.

College Republicans protest water bottle ban at St. Ben's

A ban on the sale of bottled water at the College of St. Benedict — for environmental reasons, because of the plastic waste — is being protested today by College Republicans.
And The Cucking Stool has the snark:
Won't somebody think of the free market?
The antics of college partisans are always cute, but the Minnesota College Republicans really are masters of the image event that backfires. I mean, who could forget their 2004 masterpiece shaming Matt Entenza for not shoveling his walk. And what a visual it was, when they showed up with media in tow to see a perfectly clear stretch of sidewalk. Zing!
Well, not one to let a GOPer gaff go un-mocked (when I got the time!), I thought it'd be a good time to repost a link to a great This Modern World cartoon, "Young Republicans Want To Help!"
But I am going to take issue with The Cucking Stool's Arron Klemz - the antics of college partisans are NOT always cute, and the sordid story of Abramoff et al show that.
