Not that liberal

Last night while we were staffing the GOP HQ, a student from the local college came in to get a sign. As she babbled on about her great affection for Bush and the political climate of the college, DOB asked her how the professors stood on the upcoming election.

"Oh, they're mixed," she said. "Even though it's a liberal arts college, they're not all liberal."

Apparently no one at the liberal arts college had bothered to explain to her that the "liberal" there had nothing to do with ideology. Then again, maybe the current state of academia is the result of an innocent semantical confusion.
