10 Academic Non-Sequiturs

, Malcolm A. Kline, Leave a comment

Nobody can miss the point like a well-paid, federally subsidized scholar. Here are ten who tried and failed again in 2010:

1.      An academic who believes that Social Security is sound;

2.      Professors who still believe that the woes that afflict higher education can be solved through federal intervention;

3.      A BC sociologist who sees the major problem in the Middle East as—Israel;

4.      A Central Florida political scientist who can’t believe people would think President Clinton was left-wing;

5.      A Berkeley prof bemoaning phantom budget cuts;

6.      A Yale economist who compares global warming skeptics to Hitler-appeasing Neville Chamberlain;

7.      A Notre Dame philosopher who tried to sell libertarians on welfare rights;

8.      Back to Berkeley to find a lawyer who can’t understand why Americans like Red Lobster;

9.      A University of Arizona prof  showed the value of reading by not perusing her state’s new immigration law before denouncing it; and

10.  A Lynchburg College art professor who worked Stalin into a D-Day sculpture even though old Joe was nowhere near Omaha Beach.
