Chemerinsky the Osama bin Laden of law?


The rescinded offer for liberal scholar Erwin Chemerinsky to be the founding dean of UC Irvine’s law school has been quite the cause celebre during the past week. I don’t want to wax too much on the issues—here‘s a bunch of links that do—but did want to make note of what LA County Supervisor Mike Antonovich, who had sent an e-mail to two dozen Orange County folk urging them to oppose Chemerinsky, told the Associated Press:

Making Chemerinsky the head of the law school “would be like appointing al-Qaida in charge of homeland security.”

Frankly, I don’t see the resemblance.

* Updated: Chemerinsky gets the job back.
