Compare and Contrast

Eloise at Spitbull points out this catty piece of "journalism" about Harvard President Larry Summers who has come under fire for suggesting there are innate differences between men and women, accounting for the fewer number of women in the highest levels of math and sciences.

The overweight Summers is socially inept, with sloppy eating habits and poor grooming. Colleagues speculate Summers' lack of social skills might indicate he has the neurobiological disease Asperger's Syndrome.

Has Ward Churchill been similarly excoriated for his "Little Eichmanns" statement and similar rantings? I sure can't find anything even remotely similar in the mainstream press.

Guess who's more in danger of losing his position in academia?
