The Hacktacular Professor

John Pitney accused Sen. Boxer of being a bomb-thrower. Many news outlets, from Fox to CBS only identify him as an "expert" and a professor of governmental studies. From an interview in which the Christian Science Monitor identifies him only as a "politcial scientist" he talks about Sen. Boxer:
Airtime is her oxygen. For a politician who is a born opposer, this is prime time," says John Pitney, a political scientist at Claremont McKenna College in Claremont, Calif. "Some members are bridge builders; ... others are bomb throwers."

A small tutorial for the professor:
Sen. Boxer asked questions - the only person ducking was Dr. Rice.
Bush is the bomb thrower (e.g. the hospitals in Fallujah; water treatment plants in Iraq, etc.) Sen. Boxer was right about Iraq and WMD; Gov. Bush was wrong.

Extra points for Dr. Pitney: What warmonger did you work for in the early part of your career?

Does Dick Cheney ring a bell?
