Sniper Impact

It seems the College Republicans have done a better job of promoting the "Adopt a Sniper" program than they could ever have imagined.

In the 24 hours following the breaking of the story this past Wednesday, the group garnered $17,000 of new contributions through their web site, apparently the result of publicity the Marquette decision to close down the effort created.

My sources tell me that the Tribune is swamped with Viewpoint submissions on the issue, which will reverberate in the pages of the paper for at least a few issues. An article is apparently planned for Thursday, since I talked to a Tribune reporter working on the article today.

The only loser in all this is the Marquette administration, which sacrificed a lot of credibility by its ill-considered decision.
