Speaker Series Slants Left

The roster of lectures at George Washington University [1] is about as balanced as an MSNBC broadcast. This year, the university brought in:

  • William Jacobsen, advisor to Colin Powell during the Reagan years;
  • David Plouffe, campaign manager, Barack Obama for president-2008; and
  • New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman.

Why not invite:

  • U. S. Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla.;
  • U. S. Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn.; or
  • Frank Gaffney of the Center for Security Policy, who also served in the Reagan Administration?

Not bloody likely.

Malcolm A. Kline is the Executive Director of Accuracy in Academia [2].
