Chemerinsky the Osama bin Laden of law?

http://www.jewishjournal.com/blog/item/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The rescinded offer for liberal scholar Erwin Chemerinsky to be the founding dean of UC Irvine’s law school has been quite the cause celebre during the past week.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.
