Hmmmmmm. What to subtitle this one...
"Still Crazy After All These Years"?
"The Jackal In Winter"?
Well, whichever best applies, like a bloated goldfish unwilling to join his brethren in swirly heaven, Professor Doctor Indian Ward Churchill has resurfaced, this time in a lengthy interview with Joshua Frank over at Counterpunch, wherein The Perfesser shares many of his most cherished mindthoughts...
On his lack of publication:
[...]I've invested a huge amount of time and energy doing research and writing since 2005, relatively little of it’s been for publication. Or at least not yet. The upshot is that I’ve got a half-dozen books in varying states of completion and, now that the smoke’s beginning to clear a bit on the legal front, I figure to finish them pretty much one after another, at a fairly regular rate, over the next couple of years or so.
On finally unraveling the mystery of why a "decided majority of the liberal professoriate" are not defending his honor:
All of that nonsense about my having perpetrated “scholarly fraud” and the like has been long since and repeatedly disproven, both in court and elsewhere—that’s a matter of record, easily accessible to anyone who cares to look—but they simply ignore such facts in favor of the convenience embodied in regurgitating the same old lies as a pretext.
On ultimately losing the one dollar (and reinstatement to his phoney-baloney job) awarded him by the Denver jury during his lawsuit against the University of Colorado, Boulder:
After the verdict, in what might best be described desperation maneuver, [university attorney Patrick O'Rourke] wrote up the immunity argument and submitted it as a motion to vacate judgment. We were all laughing about how Patrick had finally gone completely “quazy,” and he himself didn’t seem to think the judge would actually buy into such an off-the-wall premise. In anticipation of the university being ordered to reinstate me, he’d started inquiring about which classes I wanted to teach in the fall so that they could be listed in the regular course catalogue. Things like that.Came the moment, O’Rourke may have been as surprised as anyone else when the judge—Larry Naves, he was chief judge of the Colorado district court in Denver, and assigned himself to preside over the case—not only accepted his argument but simply reformatted his motion and entered it, verbatim, as the ruling.
If repeating the same errors over and over and expecting different results is the first part of the syllogism, then our conclusion must be that The Perfesser himself is, as he so eloquently puts it, "quazy."
