Mutant Killer College Professors

As if it wasn’t bad enough that his keepers . . . err . . . producers have problems keeping Pat Robertson "on script," they actually let him talk to people who are similarly reality-challenged. Pat was allowed to interview David Horowitz about his new book, The Professors. In case you haven’t heard about it, this is from the publisher’s blurb:

Horowitz exposes 101 academics -- representative of thousands of radicals who teach our young people --who also happen to be alleged ex-terrorists, racists, murderers, sexual deviants, anti-Semites, and al-Qaeda supporters. Horowitz blows the cover on academics who: -- Say they want to kill white people. -- Promote the views of the Iranian mullahs. -- Support Osama bin Laden. -- Lament the demise of the Soviet Union. -- Defend pedophilia. -- Advocate the killing of ordinary Americans.

. . . Not to mention, eschewing the hyphen! The fiends! And what could be worse than alleged ex-terrorists?

As you can imagine, with Pat all stirred to righteous passion, the rather predictable free association resulted:

. . . these guys are out and out communists, they are radicals, you know some of them killers, and they are propagandists of the first order and they don't want anybody else except them. That's why Regent University for example is so terrifically important and why we're setting up an undergraduate program that hopefully will see shortly 10,000 students, and then from there 250,000 because you don't want your child to be brainwashed by these radicals, you just don't want it to happen. Not only brainwashed but beat up, they beat these people up, cower them into submission. Ahhh! "The Professors", read it.

Pat Robertson must have lived a previous incarnation of great tragedy. Because this time ‘round is pure farce.
P.S. Over at Ken Shaw had the best line about Horowitz's book. In his opinion, the book is:
More evidence that Tailgunner Joe did not live in vain but that Santayana did.

The idea of karma is a myth. The universe really is a farce-increasing system...
Well, I was thinking of Marx's comment "All great world-historic facts and personages appear, so to speak, twice: the first time as tragedy, the second time as farce."

But the Law of the Increase in Farce sounds about right too.
