University of Florida football quarterback, and Heisman Trophy winner, Tim Tebow is the worst kind of Christian: Self-promoting, crass, entitled, fragile, haughty, and invoking the sacred right of Crybabyism when God doesn’t answer his prayers. During every football game, Tebow advertises his public love of God in quaint Bible verses printed on homemade eyeblack patches. Each week his his mommy sends him a list of quotes to use.
Bob Kerrey is under attack at New School “University” as their current president and I am leaping to his defense. Bob is a good son of Nebraska and he doesn’t take any guff and he isn’t good at having to put up with b.s. Those Midwestern values have served him well as a Medal of Honor winning Navy SEAL who left a leg in Vietnam, as Governor of Nebraska, as founder of multi-million dollar businesses and as a United States Senator. Those chits, however, are not enough to placate the crybaby faculty and whimpering student body at New School — and the problems with Bob’s leadership isn’t Bob it is in the anachronistic and infantile “university” he is trying to drag into the next century of learning.
