Closed to the public, no protest signs allowed, questions to be asked via index card with no back-and-forth between the students and honored guest. A “free exchange of ideas” indeed.

If he softballs him — which he probably won’t lest the few remaining scraps of his credibility end up in the toilet — he’ll never hear the end of it.

Some of New York State’s powers that be are threatening Columbia with a cut-off of government aid. Don’t believe it; this will be forgotten by everyone but the right within a week.

Anyone know if this trainwreck is being simulcast anywhere, incidentally? The Freepers thought Voice of America might be carrying it but I don’t see anything on the website. Click the image to watch.
