  •  For me, (14+ / 0-)

    This quote is important.  Per TPM

    "It still amazes me that it would be me who is portrayed this way," he added. "I have a pretty good educational background, I have a good background in doing very good quantitative work. The idea that I am some sort of foaming-at-the-mouth extremist never even crossed my mind."
    In the last week I have written two diaries calling out Richwine's committee for signing-off on his dissertation, for legitimizing his work.  I think this quote shows exactly why signing-off was a horrible mistake.  Richwine is already citing his 'qualifications' to justify his bullshit.

    Richwine does not have a history of "very good quantitative work"--it was crap.  But he does have a "pretty good educational background" because of three wankers in Harvard's Kennedy School of Government.

    This is why those three professors need to be called out.  They legitimize this crap.
