FINALLY....AN AFFIRMATIVE ACTION PROGRAM CONSERVATIVES CAN SUPPORT....We all know that conservatives are an oppressed minority in academia, but when the subject comes up most of us just shrug our shoulders, get another beer from the fridge, and say, "Sure, but whaddaya gonna do?"

Not so in Colorado, where, giddy with excitement over a successful mid-decade redistricting of their state to favor Republicans, the legislature has consulted with noted academic theoretician David Horowitz in order to produce an "Academic Bill of Rights" that seeks to enshrine an affirmative action program for conservative professors. It's "intellectual diversity," you see.

Quaker in a Basement has the story.
