Somewhere out there is still a rodeo clown out of a job.
Imagine if a college professor ever said of Barack Obama: “I wouldn’t mind seeing him dead.”
It would be the end of the egghead’s career, tenure or no tenure.
Instead, consider the case of the ancient Barry Bluestone, a longtime UMass Boston “economist” now passing his dotage at something called, believe it or not, the Kitty and Michael Dukakis Center for Urban and Regional Policy.
You can’t make this stuff up. It’s at Northeastern University. They teach you how to pass the time when you’re on a broken-down Green Line train.
At 73, Barry Bluestone is a hack’s hack. He gives money to Hillary Clinton and JoJoJo Kennedy. And this is what he said about President Trump at a public lecture last week:
“Sometimes I want to just see him impeached other times, quite honestly — I hope there are no FBI agents here — I wouldn’t mind seeing him dead.”
