Study Shows that College Faculties are Liberal

Late last month, a story made the rounds in most of the nation's newspapers about how college faculties were overwhelmingly liberal and had gotten even more liberal over the past decade. (The complete study is online yesterday's New York Times, Paul Krugman says that part of the reason is due to self-selection, and part is due to the fact that today's Republican party has become the "party of theocracy," and is "increasingly dominated by people who believe truth should be determined by revelation, not research."

National Review Online's Jonah Goldberg has responded, saying that Krugman's column is "a peripatetic tour of liberal fantasyland" and that Krugman "picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue."

I've got a few thoughts on this topic, but alas, it's time to perform the daily ritual of driving to work. There will I await the revelation of the engineering gods.
