Harriet Miers, Butt of Jokes and The Chonicle of Higher Education.
The Chronicle of Higher Education
To follow up yesterday’s post, I was researching “Butt of Jokes” and got distracted. Alert readers will notice that this is not the post I promised.
Tomorrow, I will publish how to get off the laugh track when you become the butt of jokes, the challenge Harriet Miers now faces.
But for now let me observe that it is never good to have your name come up in a Google search that includes ladies with dollar bills lovingly inserted into a g-string. Go ahead: Look up ‘Harriet Miers’ and ‘butt of jokes.’ I’ll take the hit(s).
Anyway, the pictures above and below are from a story in the newspaper of record for the Academy, the Chronicle of Higher Education.
From a sociologist. His academic research. I didn’t read the article. I go to Playboy for the articles.
And today we learn that Daniel Drezner has been denied tenure by the University of Chicago.
ProbablyMaybe because of his blog. He should have been doing work that Institutions of Higher Learning would appreciate. Advising students. Writing books. And advancing scholarship. . .
Like taking pictures of girls’ derrieres.
Tomorrow I shall return to the serious business of advising on public relations disasters.
After I finish this stack of Chronicles.
Thank you (foot)notes:
Full Disclosure: My wife has been quoted in The Chronicle, but never photographed.
[And she insists that I add this disclaimer: the Playboy line is a joke.]
Washington Post has Miers and abortion reporting.
A Typical Joe says it’s not the Blog.
