When a veteran of the short bus writes appreciatively of your work, it doesn’t say much for your scholarship. Then again Tom Schaller isn’t so much a scholar as he is a flack for Martin O’Malley and whoever else can raise his profile. To wit, see Schaller’s vapid op/ed concerning the phony controversy over Rush Limbaugh in the Baltimore Sun.
Schaller dispenses with any pretense of dealing with the facts of the situation and heads straight into the “controversy” over what was not said. But as we have seen with the SCHIP issue, progressives like Schaller never let contradicting facts get in the way of distorting the truth to shut down a debate they know they will lose.
With fools praising “scholars” like Schaller, is it any wonder the intellectual waters of the left are so shallow .
