Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of Health & Human Services, gave the commencement speech at Georgetown University's Public Policy Institute on Friday, only to be heckled as she was addressing the graduates, then met with anti-contraceptive protesters outside the building. In terms of the public disagreement over birth control, Sebelius offered the following:

These debates can be contentious. But this is a strength of our country, not a weakness. In some countries around the world, it is much easier to make policy. The leader delivers an edict and it goes into effect. There's no debate, no press, no criticism, no second-guessing.

She was probably called a "commie" for trying to say that it's easier for other countries to write and pass policies. Still, bravo for politely calling people out on ruining a graduation ceremony because they have a problem with common sense.
