Hate for Larry Summers Proxy for Hate Against Bush?

It is funny how a Democrat, who previously served as Secretary of Treasury under Bill Clinton, can be seen as a proxy for President Bush and his “rightwing conspiracy.” Still, I completely agree with David Bernstein at the Volokh Conspiracy who says that part of the anger against Larry Summers at Harvard comes from the frustration towards Bush’s reelection and the GOP's general success. The fact that this frustration is redirected towards a centrist Democrat shows you how out of touch most professors now are from the American mainstream.
