This blog used to be about politics. Not so much anymore as I have worked through my fascination with that subject. It now seems appropriate that with a new president and the end of the Bush nightmare that I move on to new subjects that are more in line with my current interests. I may still occasionally express an opinion about political matters but for the most part I will be commenting on music, photography and personal observations. Thank you for reading.

Mrs. Sheehan’s song is, I think, already fading in the charts, and “I ain’t no hollaback girl” is too ripe a metaphor to last much beyond Labor Day. Before it goes the way of all metaphors, let’s give it a cheer. On Sunday the New York Times gave an advanced peak at a forthcoming article in The Georgetown Law Journal that is yet another demonstration that higher education has become host to an extraordinary uniformity of political opinion. In this case, the campaign contributions over 11 years of professors at the top 21 law schools were reviewed. Of those who professors contributed anything, 89 percent at Duke gave to Democrats; 90 percent at Columbia; 91 percent at Harvard; topping out at 94 percent at Stanford.

ooooohhh... a multiple choice question!! (Choose any and all that apply)

Q) the overwhelming majority of professors at 21 top law schools gave to democrats because:

a) educated people find anti-intellectual conservatives and republicans to be very very silly?
b) in order to become professors at a top law school you have a liberal lobotomy?
c) law is a liberal concept, therefore, people who study it find liberalism appealing?
d) Leftist law faculties hire only the like-minded?
e) this shit's bananas?

It goes without saying that most anything published at National Review is mostly bullshit. But what I can't seem to understand is this utter lack of understanding on the part of conservatives when it comes to seeing the direct connection between modern education and liberalism.

"Why are so many people in the academic world so liberal?" they ask with absolute honesty. As if the answer isn't obvious to anyone who has read a history book.

Conservatism in academia would be the death of free inquiry. Or to put it in a way that conservatives can understand:

Who needs learnin' when you have the TRUTH?
