Ahmadinejad at Columbia

Iranian president Ahmadinejad will be speaking at Columbia University today. While I support the freedom of speech that allows Columbia University to have a holocaust-denying, America-hating, WMD threatening, mentally deranged idiot speak on their campus, I also support the right of Columbia supporters to send their money and children to other universities—which is exactly what I think they should do.

Actually this is a brilliant PR move on the part of a VERY LIBERAL University. All of this, from the University's point of view, free publicity they are receiving from print/electronic media will only serve to enhance and encourage the "liberal" base composed of alumni, faculty, staff, and friends of the school. The fact that Ahmadinejad is in favor of wiping Israel off the map, will cause the administration to walk a fine line, but I am sure the president and his subordinates have weighed all of this in making their final decision to allow this loon to speak.
