When a 4-year-old does it.

Via Tightly Wound:

When a 4-year old does it

It's annoying as hell, but when a grown man and alleged academic does it, I become enraged.

What am I talking about? Simple. Failure to accept responsibility for your actions.

Yeah, yeah. I realize I should be all jaded and "oh, but civilization has sunk so low what do you expect," yadda yadda yadda, but I refuse to go gently into this particular good night, dammit.

So let's get this straight. A year-long academic inquiry finds that a professor has plagiarized and fabricated substantial amounts of his research. The professor is fired. Who is at fault?

Why, the university of course! The public at large! The evil philistines who don't understand the greatness that is the professor! The evil political cabal who just wants to silence his brave dissent! Anyone, in short, except the psuedo-intellect in question, who--by the way--PLAGIARIZED AND FABRICATED HIS RESEARCH!

And he's gonna sue until they agree with him, golly gosh darn it!

Yeah, Ward Churchill again.
