    After all, who can't sympathise with a career being ruined for speaking truth to power?  This is the right kind of story because it can make even the apolitical mad.

    Of course, first we'd have to make sure that there is no real case for the "poor job performance" claim.  You gotta be careful.

    A lecturer for a course I took in college tried to form a lecturer's union and published her appeal in the student newspaper.  The university then fired her, citing incompetence.  She sued them and got her job back.  Problem was, she really was incompetent.  One of the worst teachers I ever had.  Sometimes there can be multiple motives, good and bad, for dismissing someone.

    •  Hell, incompetence in the Bush administration (none)
      is grounds for awards and promotion not dismissal. See George Tenet, Condoleeza Rice, Paul Wolfowitz, Bolton etc...

      •  Very true (none)
        I'm sure it's possible to manufacture a "poor job performance" demotion against anyone.  But there is something to be said for doing your homework so our argument can't be blunted.
