Condi at the bat

I see that the head of the Hoover Institution, Condolezza Rice, was on the spot defending her right-wing think tank in front of the Stanford faculty senate yesterday. Stanford houses and supports Hoover, and a lot of the faculty would like to change that, in light of the organization's highly public proliferation of quack doctors, assorted foreign policy nuts, and partisan economist hacks.

Condi's the perfect salesperson for the snake oil, of course. Remember the Weapons of Mass Destruction? That was one of her better ones. You would think a person with her track record might have been a little too tainted for Stanford. But nah.

Whatever, they can have Hoover. They don't need my piddly contribution.
