Go Forth & Multiply

, Malcolm A. Kline, Leave a comment

With the decline of basic math skills that they helped to bring about, about the only place that the political Left can multiply is on college campuses. We can see the multiplication process at work in graduation exercises as the political and media elite use their frequent flyer miles to reach students one more time before they leave the academic nest.

Indeed, a random selection of 33 colleges shows that one-third of the speakers chosen by these institutions of higher learning to inspire seniors are conservative, Republican or independent. The remainder of the lecturers were decidedly left-of-center.

Even that breakdown is a bit inflated because the former group includes such luminaries as Arizona Senator John McCain, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, and former U. S. Representative Jim Leach, who were never favorites of conservatives:

Va. Tech—Gov. Bob McDonnell

Hillsdale—Ed Meese

Liberty—Glenn Beck
