Inept Political Commentary on WFCF

DR. WILL MILLER, FLAGLER COLLEGE'S MALADROIT, INEXPERT POLI SCI PROF, is also "Director of Institutional Research (sic), Planning, and Effectiveness" (sic)

Flagler College Radio (WFCF-FM, 88.5, "Radio With a Reason") just aired this week's installment of a program called 'The Flagler Files," on which a political scientist (sic), WILL MILLER, spouse of interviewer JILL MILLER showed what he does't know. He mistakenly called national convention delegates "electors" and said Hillary Clinton has it all wrapped up.  (REPEATED ON 4/2).

Later today, Senator Bernie Sanders won three more states (Washington, Alaska and Hawaii).

Last week, on March 17th, Los Angles Times columnist Jim McManus perpetrated the same flummery in a Flagler College Forum.

Enough flummery, dupery and nincompoopery from inept political commentators.
