And, perhaps inevitably...

And see, here Rush pays the school a compliment. He compares us to the Bush administration. Oh, wait...

Can you imagine if the federal government, if the Bush administration worked this way? Things that have been leaked, can you imagine if the administration threatened to put every newspaper out of business because it was publishing documents that were classified? I think Dean Lemann at the graduate school of journalism at Columbia University is missing something right in front of his face. He has just inadvertently presided over one of the finest teaching techniques in journalism today. In fact, it's a technique that I'm sure these students thought that they might be rewarded for watching the way the New York Times and Washington Post deal with this. Leaks are what make news today. Here you have some budding young students, got hold of the school's classified data, leaked it to other students, all for the purposes of passing a test and screwing the institution, i.e., administration. I think all these people that cheated deserve an A, not just a pass, but they need to get A's and they need to get further scholarships, because they're showing the instincts to just rise as high as possible in modern journalism.

Limbaugh's early entry into the discussion suggests to me that thoughtful discussion, the helpful kind that can deepen our Columbia education, is not far off.

It's like running a gauntlet where the first attackers draw blood with war mallets and battle flails and the rest of the line just whacks you with feather dusters.
