More on Horowitz

From an article posted on Inside Higher Education:

David Horowitz, the conservative activist who has led the push for the hearings in Pennsylvania and elsewhere, admitted that he had no evidence to back up two of the stories he has told multiple times to back up his charges that political bias is rampant in higher education.

He added, however, that “everybody who is familiar with universities knows that there is a widespread practice of professors venting about foreign policy even when their classes aren’t about foreign policy” and that the lack of evidence on Penn State doesn’t mean there isn’t a problem.

Ah. You gotta love these guys on the Right.

"Evidence? We don't need no Stinkin' Evidence!"

Okay, we all knew he was full of digested sour beans, but, but it's all those uneducated, unenlightened ass holes like, well like my family that take his word and will not even consider this new revelation that he had no backup studies or proof or anything else, just that he knows. Well, shit, I know that there's a man in the moon, how? I see him almost every night. So, so, I think it's time we give that man a name set up a trust fund, maybe let the politicians decide that he needs to have his face on our currency and I'm way too weird to be blogging on this.
