Who Goofed?

If you are going to write a column defending the use of the nickname, University of Spoiled Children, you might want to know the difference between a “cheerleader” and “song girl” at USC.
Here’s the first paragraph: “A few weeks ago, John McCain made a little joke at his wife’s expense. Referring to her alma mater — Cindy McCain is a graduate of the University of Southern California, where she was a cheerleader and sorority sister — he called it “USC, the University of Spoiled Children.”
It pretty much all falls apart after that inexcusable gaffe.
