Little elfin freak (and former Colorado governor), Bill Owens, tries to shake Ward Churchill’s hand, and is told to get fucked. Crying and whining ensues.
From the Rocky Mountain News.
Former Gov. Bill Owens on Friday compared one-time University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill to a famous moviemaker – and it wasn’t a compliment.
“In retirement, he’s starting to look a lot like Michael Moore,” Owens said, referring to the frumpy director of Bowling for Columbine and Fahrenheit 9/11.
Churchill, fired by CU in 2007, is suing to get his job back.
Owens and others, including University of Colorado regents, are being deposed as part of the trial, scheduled to start March 9 in Denver District Court.
Owens declined to discuss in detail what kinds of questions he was asked and what answers he gave, but Owens wasn’t shy about expressing his opinion of Churchill.
“Ward Churchill is a plagiarist and a fraud, and, regrettably, we continue to pay for his deception.”
Churchill could not be reached for comment.
The deposition took place in the office of Churchill’s attorney, David Lane. Owens, who left office in January 2007 and now is a businessman, was represented by the attorney general’s office.
For his part Friday, Churchill refused to shake Owens’ hand.
So Owens took a verbal jab. “I said, ‘Come on, you’re a big guy.’ ”
Lane said later: “I hope the governor’s feelings weren’t too hurt.”
Nice comeback, Mr. Owens. A third-grade fat joke.
Well, I guess we can’t all look like a pedophile Hobbit, can we?
