David Horowitz responded to my criticism of his debate with Ward Churchill the other day. I would like to say that I respect Horowitz’s work on the state of American academia. It’s important and valid. I would like to have seen him debate a substantial figure of left/liberal academe like someone from the smug coterie that just put the squeeze on Harvard President Lawrence Summers. Ward Churchill, however, is a buffoon and not worthy of anyone’s attention, especially someone who has given as much serious thought to the subject as Horowitz.
