What’s the Opposite of Low Information?

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.

    Yes.

    I am a meat-eating sort myself, but I also have been known to hug a tree and disdain the occasional god. I’d like to repel fact-averse moonbats of all types….the same way naval ships repel boarders, by force of arms.
