I haven't posted on /. for years (though I've been reading it...), but I simply wanted to share this. I was recently at a conference (attending mostly by academics who have been funded/supported by Germany) where Schavan gave a speech. It was utterly horrible: pompous, pretentious and condescending, half the sentences were grammatically correct but devoid of information, the other half contained mostly bullshit, wild hyperbole designed to sound grand, and misinformation. I was literally writhing in my seat in agony. The speech was surely impossible to satirize. Even the late, great Loriot ( couldn't beat this speech. Anyway, now it looks like she, too, may have plagiarized her PhD. Call me vindictive, but I really hope this pans out...
