No surprises here….
[A] 2009 Pew Research Center report found that only 6 percent of scientists identified as Republican and 9 percent identified as conservative.
Furthermore, a 2005 study found that just 11 percent of college professors identified as Republican and 15 percent identified as conservative. Some argue that this simply represents a liberal bias in academia. But just as strong a case could be made that people who absorb facts easily don’t suffer fools gladly. — Charles Blow, NY Times
What do you suppose? Is there something about science and academia that attracts tree-hugging gun-hating unpatriotic god-disdaining elitist effeminate moonbats, or repels fact-adverse meat-eating war mongering greedheaded bigoted paranoid prayer-harpy wingnuts?
Pop quiz (for the liberals) at noon. Conservatives will attend mandatory prayer.
