Poison Ivy

We at Jewdar are not among those critical of “Columbia University’s”:http://www.nydailynews.com/news/2006/11/26/2006-11-26_wild_sex_101_sm_clubs_nude_parties_porn_.html decision to let Iranian President Ahmadinejad speak. To our way of thinking, taking a deceitful, if stylish, dictator like Ahmadinejad, a man who is accustomed to saying whatever nonsense he wants without repercussions, and putting him in a situation where he actually has to face hostile questioning, has the makings of brilliant theater. Too bad Columbia President Lee Bollinger handled it in such a way as to make “Zoo Animals on Wheels”:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SmB5I9VmEPc look like Broadway.

Here you have a group of Ivy League-types confronting the world’s most powerful Holocaust denier and one of the world’s most notorious sponsor of terrorism, and what do they do? Call him “names.”:http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/text/2003899705_webusiran24.html Couldn’t Bollinger and some of the the big brains at Columbia (hello, Journalism Department) come up with some pointed, incisive questions to put to the guy?

Maybe next time, Ahmadinejad should try a state school.

What do you think?

    hello Columbia……….. …The hostile, rude treatment from Bollinger,
    resulted in making Ahmadinejad look a heck of a lot kinder and gentler…
