How do we know that Meredith Hay really is provost at the UA? Why won’t she show us her paystub?

UA Death Panel

Look, honestly, there really does seem to be something rotten in the campus of Tucson. Perhaps we are coming close to a tipping point where the conspiratorial seed realizes that it is in the majority, and rises up publicly. Perhaps this will result in the disclosure of definitive information implicating Provost Hay and President Shelton in their alleged malfeasance. Nevertheless, it is still very hard to take seriously a group that draws a direct connection from its critiques to the barely coherent ramblings of the WorldNetDaily set. Seriously, guys – y’all need to hire a PR agent or something.

Also, be sure to check out the bonus “yo momma” joke against “Suzie” near the bottom of the post. In an inversion of internet norms, the comments section actually contains the most substantive and fair-minded debate, and is highly recommended.

* – Hey, Birffers are fun! So are imagined 16th century plays! Enjoy both – at once! – at the Kosmo.

**  – I would also like to thank Urantian Sojourn and MS Paint for artistic inspiration. But Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time.

    Evan! you may be right – lots of our readers, who won’t sign their names, have said they’ve never seen Meredith Hay. Some may come to question whether she really exists. Or whether that lady who comes out from time to time for photo ops is just a stand-in from the PR agency you recommended. (You know we can’t afford that.) Or a figment of MS Pigment. As for her pay stub, well, who really IS pulling down that 350,000 salary attributed to “Meredith Hay” on the DW’s online UA Salary database you put us all onto? So many unanswered questions. So many enigmas.
    Anyway, thanks for the photo!

  2. […] they’re a little more media-savvy than their WorldNetDaily-inspired faculty peers, but the grad-student-led Arizona Student, Faculty and Staff Solidarity (ASFSS) still […]

  3. […] Say what you will about the Birchers of the academy: this column is an incredibly stupid move by Shelton and Hay, a passive-aggressive swipe against an anonymous blog. Congrats are due to the Defender and its associates, who have succeeded in bringing heat to the President and Provost in spite of themselves. […]
