Meet Timothy Shortell, Brooklyn College’s recently-elected chairman of the school’s sociology department:


Shortell received 7 out of 12 faculty votes to secure his new position, despite (or perhaps because of) crackpot online rants comparing Karl Rove to Joseph Goebbels and attacking religious people as “moral retards.”

It says something that students are more outraged at Shortell’s election than the rest of the campus administration. One exception is Brooklyn College history prof K.C. Johnson, who speaks out here and here.

Bill Quick weighs in.

Thomas Lifson
at The American Thinker asks: “Just who are the moral retards?”

Looks like he’s angling for an invitation to appear on religion-basher Bill Maher’s show next season.
