Conservative Victimhood

Just a quickie for today -- I particularly liked the end of the article:

Still, I find the attention to campus politics charming. The only ones who take universities as seriously as universities take themselves are activists on the right.

When Harvey Mansfield, a Harvard University conservative, was asked about the difficulty conservatives had getting tenure, he sighed ironically, "Well, I guess they'll have to go to Washington and run the country."

Want to talk real power? If the faculty clubs are blue, corporate management offices are red. In the name of diversity, let's trade some liberal sociologists for conservative oil executives.
