Mints For Different Taste Buds

Politics From the Eyes of an Ebony Mom reported the following.:
The University of Tennessee (Knoxville) were selling mints that featured the likeness of the president and they were called ‘Disappoint Mints’. A Democratic state legislator visited the store and saw the mints and told the bookstore to remove them from their shelves. Rep. Joe Armstrong said “When you operate on state and federal dollars, you ought to be sensitive to those type of politically specific products.” he went on to say “if it was a private etity or corporation, (that’s different), but this is a state university. We certainly don’t want in any way to put the university in a bad light by having Political (products), particularly aimed at defaming the president.” So what do you think? Was the legislator right or is this censorship? Tell me what you think.

Another source revealed that the same bookstore sold mints skewering George W. Bush a few years ago.
