Swift, Kihne, Tomczak

A Confederacy of Dunces

When a great genius appears in the world
the dunces are all in confederacy against him

Jonathan Swift 

Not that I am claiming to be a genius, but the phrase John Kennedy Toole made famous certainly applies to the three stooges pictured here.

A Twitter cabal comprising of Bachmann fans Sheila Kihne and former St. Paul School Board candidate Tom "Swiftee" Swift is apparently attempting a reprisal by contacting University officials to complain about Professor Gleason (see screenshot below - click on it to make it bigger). Everyone who cares about academic freedom and the right to free expression should be appalled by the harassment of Professor Gleason.
