You have to be a highly trained academic to do the really dumb stuff.
Fr. Dennis Dease is the president of Saint Thomas University in Saint Paul. He's got the vapors over last week's Ann Coulter appearance:. It's even gone national! (Hat tip to Katie Kieffer at the St. Thomas Standard, the underground conservative paper that has to be giving Dease a blood pressure spike).
Dease, of course, has as long a history of coddling the wacko left has he does of trying to ding the right. In 2000, St. Thomas hosted a Cuban baseball team. One of the players, Mario Chaoui, defected while waiting for a plane at the Humphrey Terminal. Dease promptly asked for him to come back, and just to be safe, forbade all Saint Thomas students from aiding or sheltering the Cuban. "For their own safety", he said.
I couldn't afford to send my kids to Saint Thomas. And if I could, I wouldn't.
