Reminding Liberal Academics at State Universities Who They Work For, Step 1

April 13, 2007 12:43 PM

A few weeks ago, the faculty Senate at the University of Florida voted against giving former Governor Jeb Bush an honorary degree.  Earlier this week, the Republican controlled House in Florida voted to make the University rename it's entire college of education after the former Governor:

The University of Florida's education school would be renamed the "Jeb Bush College of Education," under an amendment approved this morning by the House Schools & Learning Council. What's more, UF would also have to erect "suitable markers" noting the college's new name and include the revised name in all university documents, including catalogues and brochures.

That will irk all the people who need irking.

Not a fan of the Bushes, but no one is more annoying, ignorant, and stupid than left-wing academics. This rocks.

It is so tiresome to see academics at state universities who have such contempt for the people who pay the bills--by which I mean students and taxpayers, not politicians who vote on their budgets. The disconnect is ridiculous. Not to mention the academy's sense of entitlement. Where else do you find folks who believe they are entitled to unlimited taxpayer dollars to do whatever the hell they want, with no accountability?
