Commencements over the weekend

From the NY Post: 

Clinton touched off the generation war Thursday, saying Gen Y'ers "don't know what work is. They think work is a four-letter word."

She added: "America didn't happen by accident. A lot of people worked really hard. They've got to do their part, too."

Clinton grumbled that today's youths "think they're entitled to go right to the top with $50,000 or $75,000 jobs when they have not done anything to earn their way up."

She made no mention of her daughter, Chelsea, 26, who snagged a six-figure consulting spot in the New York office of London-based McKinsey & Company after receiving her master's degree from Oxford in 2003.

The imported NY Senator has since apologized for her comment. Thanks, Chelsea!

Meanwhile, Bill Cosby addressed the black ladies at Spelman:

"You have to know that it is time for you all to take charge," Cosby said. "You have to seriously see yourselves not as the old women where the men stood in front and you all stood behind, because the men, most of them are in prison."

Added Cosby: "It is time for you to pick up the pace and lead because the men are not there. They're not there and every one of you young women know it." …
Cosby told the graduates that the same male students who are dropping out of high school "have memorized the lyrics of very difficult rap songs."

Added Cosby: "And they know how to send their sperm cells out and then walk away from the responsibility of something called fatherhood."
