First, We Fire All the Liberals

Posted by Rick · September 17th, 2007 · No Comments

Erwin Chemerinsky is one of the most renowned of constitutional scholars; he’s been rightly called a “demi-god.”

U.C. Irvine is apparently trying to get a new law school off the ground. I say “apparently,” because they’re sure going about it in a funny way. They may have shot themselves in the foot before they started: last week, one week after hiring him to be the new Dean of the proposed law school, they fired him because of pressure from Orange County conservatives. Apparently, they suddenly realized Chemerinsky was “a liberal.” And god knows we can’t have them running our law schools!

Rumor has it they may lose their ABA accreditation before they even get it.

But they’re working on fixing things. Like so many other recent stupid political moves, they’re trying to convince Chemerinsky that they’ve changed their minds again and want to re-hire him. 😉

Where did the fiction that the neo-cons were smart ever get any traction?
