WARD CHURCHILL says he’s not an Indian. “Churchill did address the issue of his ethnicity, admitting that he is not Native American. . . . ‘Let’s cut to the chase; I am not,’ he said.”

Matt Duffy thinks he wants to be fired.

UPDATE: Heh:

Go here to find Ward Churchill — admitted Pale-Face WASP — whining that universities won’t give out more tenured positions to “indigenous peoples.”

“Indigenous peoples” — you know, like Dick Cavett, Stone Philips, Anderson Cooper, etc. People indigenous to the Hamptons and Aspen, I guess.

Did I say “heh?” Oh, right, I did.

ANOTHER UPDATE: A journalist writes that questions have been raised
about the accuracy of the quote; they’re trying to run them down.
