Affirmative action for conservatives
It's funny how the right gets incensed about ethnic bean-counting but seems positively giddy about ideological bean-counting at universities. It seems like every year someone makes a splash with the big news that most university faculty lean left. While it's certainly true that some ideological "blackballing" goes on in departments across the country, the bigger problem is that conservatives by-and-large self-select out of academia. Can't wait to see the boys at the National Review release that survey about the ideological preferences of corporate executives. Lots of Democrats there, right?
