In touch with the out of touch

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor -

Here’s help for those strug­gling with the para­dox in the gen­er­ally-ac­cepted state­ment that Barack Obama is the over­whelm­ing fa­vorite of col­lege-ed­u­cated young peo­ple: When one re­mem­bers that the vast ma­jor­ity of Amer­ica’s col­lege fac­ulty is left-wing-lib­eral-demo­crat, it be­comes ap­par­ent that the more ap­pro­pri­ate verb in that con­fus­ing state­ment would be “in­doc­tri­nated.”

That Obama is the fa­vorite of col­lege-in­doc­tri­nated young peo­ple makes per­fect sense. When one con­sid­ers the se­cure, tenured life as­pired to by most col­lege pro­fes­sors, it fol­lows that so­cial­ism would be ap­peal­ing to them. Bet­ter ed­u­ca­tion might up­set this flawed con­cept.
