Why Academia Sucks - Alberto "I Can't Recall" Gonzales To Be Paid $100,000 To Teach One Class By Texas Tech

This man does not possess a Ph.D. He is not a college professor and resigned in disgrace from his last job, but Texas Tech is going to pay him the one year salary of a full professor ($100,000) to teach one class with no more than 15 students. WTF!!!!!!!!!

Real academics with doctoral degrees, years of teaching and scholarship under their belts are losing their jobs and Texas Tech is paying this lying creep $100,000 to teach some bullshit Poly-Sci seminar.

This is a major slap in the face for people who have gone through the hell of the dissertation process and to the people that teach everyday....to have some failed government stooge get a soft payday because he can't find work anywhere else is disgusting. Damn! Florida Evans Double Damn!

And I was already pissed at this asshole for remarking that Judge Sonia Sotomayor had to "explain herself" to the GOP. Really? Does he mean like he explained himself to Congress? Mr. Memory Loss, himself? Who are these people?

I heard about this a day or so ago. What can you say? I'm sure they're ringing phones off the hook down there...

He got the hook up from the GOP white boys!

Hmmm...Texas Tech, huh. Guess that's his payoff for doing the Prez's bidding. Only in higher education.

Mr. Gonzales will lecture at Tech on his area of expertise, Fluid Mechanics of Waterboarding.

Damn shame...

Most of my faculty have PhD and we're struggling trying to pay them $65K.

Hey Jim Talent should be pissed. He did the same thing at a MO school for just under $100,000. Dang, he's prolly thinking "Show me the money!"

It happens all the time, where poor grad students make $2400 the entire semester for the class, the pols make six figures. Gotta love it.
