Posted on September 19, 2011

I have to ask. Is anyone shocked or even surprised by AAUP’s action? AAUP (American Association of University Professors) has demonstrated itself to be just slightly less ideologically corrupt than MSNBC.

This is the administration that promised unprecedented transparency. … If Bush had done this…. […]
