Stanley Hoffmann: “America under Bush worse than France under Nazis.”

By on 10.23.08 | 11:09AM

Not that we really need another example of Ivy League academic extremism, but Harvard Professor Stanley Hoffmann Weekend at Hoffman's.(whose vitae includes teaching Newsweek editor Fareed Zakaria) is reported to have said that he thought he saw his worst years living in Nazi occupied France. But now, he continues, he sees that Nazi-occupied France only lasted four years. The Bush administration, however, has lasted eight.

I'm of the belief that professors have to face issues of academic integrity when they make arguments during lecture that have no basis in fact. Yet that makes me fascist. Ironic.
