Apparently, The Next University Chancellor Should Be Some Sort of Expletive
Florida's University Chancellor Mark Rosenberg resigned last fall, and returned to FIU where he previously served as provost. John Delaney, President of the University of North Florida is serving in the interim, but the hunt is on for the full time replacement.
Rosenberg's tenure was marked with strife with the legislature and board of governors, this is why St. Pete Times columnist Howard Toxler wants the next chancellor to be some, and I quote, "a real (bleep)." I am not sure what that "(bleep)" is censoring. Asshole? Fucker? Bitch? Ass-Fuckin' Bitch?
Amongst the Ass-Fuckin' Bitches Toxler suggests is Jeb Bush, Bob Graham, and Donna Shalala. Presumably because these powerful individuals will strike fear into the heart of these lowly State legislature who will only reach these folk's stature in their wildest wet dreams.
"Oh, you don't like my plan to expand online learning opportunities? Who are you? Some shady, two-bit lawyer who paid his dues to some corrupt, local party system to represent some gerrymandered slice of suburban sprawl? I'm Bob Graham, I'm an Ass-Fuckin' Bitch. What don't you take your problems with my plans and shove it where the sun don't shine."
Should these bold-face names not be available, Toxler could also get
behind a Carl M. Kuttler Jr., president of St. Petersburg College,
FSU's T.K. Wetherell, CFO Alex Sink, USF's Judy Genshaft, and UF's
Bernie Machen. They may not be able to make legislators pee their pants
with a raised eyebrow, but in Toxler's view they'll find some way to
snap them in line.
