Bruce Thornton (via Victor Davis Hanson's Private Papers site) writes about academic freedom and the political bias of the American university:
"...most universities continue to deny what every freshman learns the first semester on campus: professors and administrators may pay lip-service to academic freedom, an openness to non-conformist ideas, and a tolerance for dissenters, but in actual fact by their own words and deeds make it very clear that there will be a price to pay for anyone daring to stray from the well-worn ideological grooves. And of course, conforming to unexamined ideas and received wisdom dispensed by lectern sages will earn impressionable students acceptance and praise, meaning that the most important purpose of the university — to teach and apply a critical consciousness dedicated to the search for truth no matter whose ox is gored –– has been abandoned."
Victor Davis Hanson writes about the Iranian ruler working towards wiping Israel off the map: in "The Not-So-Mad Mind of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad."
Gay Patriot West at Gay Patriot writes about the recent Canadian election:
"Just like the Germans last fall, Canadians voted out a government whose leaders made clear their opposition to President Bush’s policies. While the Bush’s critics continually claim that people in other lands share their distaste for our Commander-in-Chief, it seems that when it comes time to vote, those abroad are not as obsessed with bashing the President of the United States as are some of their leaders — and their cheerleaders in the American media and blogosphere.
During his campaign, Canadian Prime Minister-designate Harper has made clear that once in office he will improve relations with the United States. As President Bush works with his new Canadian counterpart to further the longstanding ties between our two great nations, the Left will have an even tougher time proving their ludicrous claim that his policies have isolated our nation."
Finally, does anybody know what's up with the Drudge Report? It hasn't been updated since January 11th or so....
UPDATE: The Dreamboat recently admitted to me that he wasn't familiar with Code Pink. Here, via Ace, is Redhunter's writeup of one of the latest developments centering around the troops at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center near Washington, DC. And here's another mention of Code Pink's antics in the news lately: "Code Pink Photoshops Iranian Freedom Babes as Iraq Antiwar Activists" by Publius Pundit.
