Useful Idiot of The Week: Kent Higgins

BOSTON - University of Massachusetts officials on Monday quashed efforts by an Amherst campus chaplain to offer two college credits to any student willing to campaign in New Hampshire this fall for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.
Chaplain Kent Higgins told students in a Sept. 18 e-mail, "If you're scared about the prospects for this election, you're not alone. The most important way to make a difference in the outcome is to activate yourself. It would be just fine with (Republican candidate John) McCain if Obama supporters just think about helping, then sleep in and stay home between now and Election Day."
I wonder if you could get two credits for campaigning for John McCain, if not then Kent Higgins should be shit canned.

And to think I was on teh short-list for hire at Dartmouth as Chaplain (not Amherst, but.... worse) when my "stealth" conservatism was "outed".
