Along with the reduction in state funding for the University of Wisconsin System, the Walker administration and GOP legislature gutted faculty tenure. They had all kinda reasons why it was bad and holding back the university. Well the new tenure rules are causing an exodus of experienced faculty to head for greener pastures…and the conservative supporters all applauded the changes!

But wait just a second…one of their sacred cows got gored by Marquette University…and the right is all over supporting him and helping him sue the school…and one of the things they are all up in arms about his the revocation of his tenure.

I am not going to pursue this any further…it just some times amazes me the way the pendulum swings insider their heads.
