"Racist, sexist, anti-gay — Larry Summers, you must pay"

That was the chant picked up by Harvard faculty members in a meeting with University President Larry Summers yesterday.

February 23, 2005 -- CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — More than half of Harvard's professors disapprove of embattled President Lawrence Summers — and a third want him to quit, a poll revealed as faculty members gathered yesterday to debate his future... [NY Post]
I'll have only one comment on this whole circus at the moment.

Remember when not so long ago yet another survey found that on the faculties of leading universities Democrats/liberals outnumber Republicans/conservatives by some ratio like 7,000 to 1?

And remember when university representatives replied:

"That's no evidence of discrimination against non-liberals here. We are all professionals, and whatever our own political beliefs may be we would never discriminate against non-liberal candidates for faculty positions on the basis of some sort of liberal political correctness..."

Ha, ha.

Another liberal being mugged by reality. Do you suppose he'll emerge from the experience a neo-conservative?

By the way, why isn't Bill Clinton speaking up for him?

(OK, that was three comments, sorry.)
