Setting Him Up For The Fall

Sounds like Professor Minehaha is going to get his walking papers--for academic fraud.

It's too bad. I'd actually like to see him keep his job, and continue to embarrass the University of Colorado. As someone said on Brit Hume's panel last night, he's a poster child for everything that's wrong with academia.

Then again, he may survive. After all, an endorsement like this is hard to beat:

"I've read a fair amount of his work, and a lot of it is excellent, penetrating and of high scholarly quality," said Noam Chomsky, linguistics professor at Massachusetts Institute of Technology and an anti-war activist.

It's a good thing that Douglas Adams didn't live to see that Chomsky quote. He would have realized that nothing in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy could match it.

If there are questions about his military record, shouldn't they be relatively easy to investigate? Isn't it possible to request DoD records indicating if somebody actually served in the military?

An enterprising reporter, or blogger, could do this kind of background research.

I found a great site offering primary document sources on Ward Churchill
and thought you might be interested

It has organized and indexed by topic:

1. all the pdf files from the American Indian Movement Documents on Churchill
2. the pdf fils of academic research demonstrating academic fraud found in his research
3. very old interviews with Churchill over his battle with AIM, his claim to Indian ancestry, his road to tenure and so forth.
4. pdf files of academic critiques of Churchill' publications
5. An index of his publishers and a description of their reputation stated in their own words

It's set up for easy access to documents

Most of it cannot be found through a google search but was accumulated by a combined research effort. Anyone wishing to use the documents for further research on Mr. Churchill may help themselves.

I posted this on LGF, but it's relevant here also:

Ward Churchill is obviously a life support system for a living-biological-mass-to-non-living-fecal-material-conversion system. He seems to have no other purpose in this world other than to take up space and consume oxygen, and take the taxpayers of Colorado for the ride of their life.....which reminds me...Hey Coloradians? How does it feel to be bent over grasping your ankles, with your pants down around your knees? Are you all yelling "Thank you Mr. Churchill, may I have another?!?!" at the top of your lungs?

And don't forget the reputed (and HIGHLY illegal, if true) visits with Moammar Gadhafi, IN LIBYA, in the 1980s. The only controversy there ought to be surrounding this guy is whose b**ch will he be tonight in the Federal slammer.
