A Publicity Coup for Noam Chomsky . . . Not!

You’ve gotta feel for the guy a little bit. Everyone’s favorite linguist has put his best foot forward to write about politics and other areas outside his technical expertise (We know a little bit about that on this blog!). Nevertheless, Noam Chomsky seems to be the man of the hour among all the wrong people.

Last Fall, Chomsky got endorsed by the world’s most notorious dictator, Hugo Chávez. And now this Fall, he has just been endorsed by the world’s most notorious terrorist, Osama Bin Laden. All in all, I’d say that’s a pretty bad 12 months worth of publicity. Talk about your unintended consequences!

    As a rhetorician with some respect for the Chommer, I hate to see him keeping such questionable company!

    I certainly don’t want Chomsky to become part of my Axis of Evil!

    I’m an idiot. 🙁
