Ward Churchill gets the boot!

The University of Colorado governing board finally came to its senses today and fired "professor" Ward Churchill for plagiarism and falsifying facts in his work. The vote was a clear 8 to 1 to oust this loser.

Churchill has threatened to sue, but we'll have to wait and see about that. It'll be interesting to see how many of his leftist friends come to his defense. If they do, will it do them any good?

The fact is that Churchill was not fired because of his infamous post-September 11th essay, "Some People Push Back", but for intellectual theft and falsifying facts to fit his warped view of the evil American empire. That view is not real, so he had to make up his facts to fit his theory. He will have defenders, but anyone who wants to protect their own reputation in the university world is unlikely to tarnish it by being associated with him. Or at least that's my optimistic, and maybe naive, opinion.

We can debate that later. For now, let's just rejoice in Ward Churchill's firing. It was late in coming, but now that it has come, it still tastes good.
