As detailed in a More Messages blog, University of Colorado Boulder Chancellor G.P. "Bud" Peterson is spearheading a long-term project (estimated price tag: $9 million) to bring more conservative professors to the famously liberal institution. Well, at least one high-profile aspirant is ready, willing and able to share his rightward views with the student body -- and his name is Tom Tancredo.
On May 14, Tancredo's office sent out a witty media blast entitled "Tancredo to Apply for Conservative CU Job," which notes that the former presidential candidate and lame-duck U.S. Representative just sent in an application for the post. Moreover, he's got some typically nutty ideas for what he'd do if CU actually added him to the faculty.
