Homophobe Meg Whitman pulls out of UCLA business school commencement date

Ding dong. Just got word that that the wicked witch of the west coast is no longer going to be speaking at UCLA’s business school commencement this spring. There was quite a bit of outrage from the gay business school alum network, and lots of other students and alums, when it was announced recently that the outspoken supporter of Prop 8 was going to be speaking at commencement. Seems those California business students have a problem with bigots being hailed as great leaders. Go figure. Whitman announced today that she had a “scheduling conflict” that won’t permit her to attend. Let’s hope she has a scheduling conflict on election day, 2010.
