Two Thoughts re: Deal Hudson

Thought the First:

Just because Deal Hudson agrees with you doesn't mean you're wrong.

Some Fumaristas have supported the war in Iraq; others have opposed it. When I, and others, argued in favor of our near eastern adventure, "neo-con" rapist Monaghan tool Deal Hudson's support for the war was thrown in our faces. Now, Hudson seems to have changed his tune. He certainly has left (not, pace Pinker, "has certainly left") the neo-con reservation vis a vis Israel's recent operations in Gaza. Agreeing with Hudson on this point doesn't make you leftist dhimmis wrong now, any more than agreeing with him then made us crusaders wrong before. Interesting, though, that Hudson's views seem to have shifted just as have the winds of power, no? (Correct answer: No.)

Thought B:

Rapist Monaghan tool Hudson (neo-con or no) is the only professor I can name who was removed from his tenured position (at Fordham). Well, he was. Now we can all name another one. Hudson was removed for sexual misconduct with a student. Allegations of sexual misconduct seems one of the few ways to get rid of a tenured prof. Even plagiarism doesn't seem to do the trick these days. I wonder if l'affaire Hudson gave T$M another one of his brilliant ideas.
