Former House Speaker and Presidential Candidate Newt Gingrich visited a local college in Frederick, Maryland the day before the GOP Primary.
The once upon a time History and Geography professor of another small college was not welcomed on campus of the small liberal arts college. Some professors went on record to air their disagreement and anger to hosting the public event. Some led demonstrations inside and out of the auditorium when Newt was giving the talk.
Had Newt granted tenure in 1978, we probably wouldn't be seeing any of these. However, it is clear that birds of a feather flock together.
