Ward Churchill Admits He Is not an Indian

UPDATE: Well, don't believe everything you read in the newspapers. Instapundit tells us that the Honolulu Star-Bulletin blatantly misquoted Ward Churchill. Probably some stupid reporter (a) misheard him, (b) omitted lots of words that he did hear, and (c) failed to check with Churchill on whether he had really said the surprising thing the reporter thought Churchill said. Here's the correction:

"Let's cut to the chase, I'm not," the quote in yesterday's paper continued.

But a review of video and audio tapes of the speech shows that Churchill actually said: "Is he an Indian? We really care. We're trying to protect the rights of Indians to divine for themselves, say this circle of flies in the form of white reporters circling a manure pile like it's of all consequential importance. Cut to the chase on that."

Ward Churchill is shrewd. He has admitted that he is not an Indian, this Feb 23 newspaper article reports. With all the attention focussed on him, the truth was sure to come out anyway, so he is smart to have it come from his own mouth first, so he can spin it. (Via Instapundit)

Don't usually quote Ann Coulter, but she had it pegged: Not Crazy Horse, just crazy.
