"Barbara Kay, to the Damage Control Desk. Barbara Kay."

The National Post's Babs Kay takes time off from her new gig as Kathy Shaidle's understudy to hork up another hairball.

Ah, National Post, I will so miss thee when thee is gone.

CURIOUS. Is it just my imagination, or did the same wingnuts who studiously avoided the comments section on that original cringeworthy article suddenly come out in full force to fawn all over Kay in that newer piece?

It does seem delightfully choreographed, doesn't it? Even relentless wingnut "Sassylassie" stops by to give Babs a thorough fluffing. Metaphorically speaking.

HEH. INDEED. Commenter "mhogan1024" makes a delicious point:

One can only hope theology studies are next. One can study religions in other departments the same way as one studies myths, but don't credit belief without evidence as a serious university subject.

Well spoken. If the wingnuts want to dismiss womens' studies as advocacy or political indoctrination, that would seem to go double for the worthless, vacuous rubbish that passes for theological scholarship these days.

If Canada's Christopaths want to sit around and thoughtfully debate why evil exists or how many angels can fit on the head of a pin, they can do it without my tax dollars.

What a nifty little faux-engraving pic of Bawb-wah accompanies the piece, particularly the way her turtle-neck emphasizes a double chin that one can envision trembling with fury as she produced yet another hack job on Women's Studies.

I love the last line:

Goodbye, salut, farewell, shalom. Don't slam the door on the way out.

Something she's no doubt hearing a lot these days.

Doesn't she ever wonder why it's only illiterate morons (and loony racists like Kathy Shaidle) who agree with her? She's not the only one who's ever suggested that the best scholarship that's come out of women's studies programs could be incorporated elsewhere in the curriculum (in fact, she probably stole the idea from liberal feminists like Susan Jacoby) and yet, no one sensible's going to agree with her, because everyone sensible hates her.

Oh well; no wonder she drove that rag into the ground.
