[Jack] Nelson-Pallmeyer, however, was barely civil, both during and after the debate. He spun every conspiracy fantasy known to the blogosphere about the Bush administration, and then added a couple original theories to boot. He seemed very self-satisfied in the manner of academics who just know they know everything. Nelson-Pallmeyer offered hysterics to an audience clearly receptive to them.
From Captain Ed, regarding the last man standing between the DFL endorsement and Al Franken. Anyone who is a professor of Justice and Peace Studies can be expected to behave this way, Ed. It's in their qualifying exams for the doctorate.
But at least Nelson-Pallmeyer isn't hiding in a music department.
I do not have a KAR signal to turn on, but I will remind you of a typical KAR discussion of St. Thomas' Peace Studies program. This is still in my top five favorite KAR posts, and their essay would certainly get an A- in the J&P program. B's are so fascist...
