How should UW know this decision was a bad one, even with all the bluster over 'academic freedom' that has emenated from the chambers of the Chancellor? Easy, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel not only scolds them for the hiring, but defends George Bush.
To understand how important this is, you have to realize that the Journal-Sentinel editorial board claims the sky is green because Bush said it's blue, they claim water is dry because Bush said he got wet swimming, and they've all become vegetarians because George Bush likes steak.
Even a left handed defense of GWB, as they give in todays lead editorial should cause who ever is on the other end of it to figure they've screwed up royally.
To make matters worse, on the same day they printed a second op/ed piece, that's wonderful by the way, on who else UW should start hiring with "unconventional views".
