Columbia University president Lee Bollinger first invited him to Columbia to speak... and then instead of introducing him, insulted him!
"I doubt that you will have the intellectual courage to answer these questions but that will in itself be meaningful to us... Mr President, you exhibit all the signs of a petty and cruel dictator."Yes, yes, Ahmadinejad is scum, but if Bollinger thought he was scum, why invite him to speak? And you don't invite guests to your university and then insult them. You can't have it both ways, you posturing idiot.
There's stupid all around. Here's some stupid from the left:
I know I'm a Jewish lesbian and he'd probably have me killed. But still, the guy speaks some blunt truths about the Bush Administration that make me swoon...Right. Ahmadinejad is Miaka to Sally Kohn's Nuriko. So insanely cute even lesbians drop their panties for him. PLEASE GOD LET ME VOMIT.
Okay, I admit it. Part of it is that he just looks cuddly. Possibly cuddly enough to turn me straight.
And for balance, here's some stupid from the right.
Duncan Hunter, appearing on Neil Cavuto, just suggested he would like to see how to limit federal funds to Columbia University.Oh, yeah, a university picks a bad speaker, and it gets its federal funds cut? STUPID. I really want the federal government vetting university speaking engagements. Perhaps we need a cabinet-level position for it, you think?
Ahmadinejad is just a strange attractor for stupid.
