If you don't approve of Yale admitting a former Taliban spokesman, you're "retarded"

Isn't it just like the left? When their ideas are actually challenged, they lose all cognitive function and regress to elementary school behavior: name calling (via Captain's Quarters).

Mr. Surovov, a Yale alumnus who has worked in its development office for three years and is on the board of the Yale Club of New Haven, wrote Mr. Taylor and Ms. Bookstaber at their private email addresses with the subject heading: "Y [sic] do you hate Yale." Here is his email in its entirety: "What is wrong with you? Are you retarded? This is the most disgraceful alumni article that I have ever read in my life. You failed to mention that you've never contributed to the Yale Alumni Fund in your life. But to suggest that others follow your negative example is disgusting."

Our side of the arguement believes that "when you combine a sub-par 4th grade education, a B+ college average in a special program, and a job history as a spokesperson for a regime that hates America, destroys priceless Buddhas, oppresses women, stones homosexuals, and enforces brutal sharia law in violation of UN Human Rights agreements" perhaps an institution might not want that individual associated with them. If you want an that type of person at Yale, just tell us why. Did he donate $1 miilion to the school? Do you feel he exemplifies your goal for diversity? Had you not filled your foreign student quota? Or am I retarded for wanting to know why he was admitted to Yale? True, I have no vested interest with this, as I do with my alma mater having Cindy Sheehan speak there, porn aired on school run TV, etc. I didn't go to Yale. But if I were you, I'd sure as hell explain yourself to your alumni before they decide they won't donate money to the school anymore.
