A Little Matter of Stupidity

Deborah Lipstadt brought this to my attention, but I recently had a dream about Ward Churchill. No shit.

He’s on the Chomskyite fringes of public discourse and, like other acolytes of the Dean, has come into hard times for saying really stupid things in public.

He doesn’t matter much, on the whole. He’s not worth getting upset about, even. He’s not well-spoken, like Noam, nor does he have any big achievements under his belt. He doesn’t get invited to speak on Al-Manar or Al-Jazeera–just at my alma mater, VCU. No shit.

So just sit back and dig his style. Straight up, no chaser.
