Quote of the Day

In our age there is no such thing as 'keeping out of politics.' All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia.-- George Orwell

“I would rather be a swineherd at Amagerbro and be understood by the swine than be a poet and be misunderstood by people.” ― Søren Kierkegaard, Either/Or: A Fragment of Life

No Condi

Good on Rutgers' students and faculty.

Now if only college football fans might discard her from the Playoff selection committee next season.  Not only is she unworthy as a human being, but she knows as much about football as my cat.

I don't have a cat.  But you get the idea.

Inviting a contribution from Condoleezza Rice in anything these days shows an appalling lack of judgment, something you might expect from the good ol' boys who run college football.  But for a major university to allow her to give a commencement is simply, breathtakingly, hopelessly asinine.

But, come to think of it, since when did we ever really expect the academy to be exempt from asininity?
