WAR: Throw Me In The Briar Patch!

Martin Kramer has the hilarious tale of a mediocre academic who has falsely claimed to be "one of the main targets of Campus Watch," Daniel Pipes' website devoted to exposing anti-American and anti-Israel propaganda masquerading as scholarship, apparently in the hopes of boosting his profile. I also wonder why this guy is smoking a cigarette in his official campus photo. There are two possibilities: (1) he's such a nicotine addict he couldn't be bothered to put his smoke down long enough to be photographed or (2) there's some radical chic thing going on with showing him having a smoke against the backdrop of a concrete wall, like he's about to face a firing squad.
