INTELLECTUAL DIVERSITY....I'm getting pretty tired of incessant snarky comments from conservatives about the lack of "intellectual diversity" on university campuses:

Here's more on the flap over Duke's diversity problem. "Whats clear is that the present administration has pledged a commitment to racial, gender, and intellectual diversity, but actual resources are only dedicated toward the first two components."

Duke and other institutions devote resources to the first two because America has a long and often ugly history of discrimination against ethnic minorities and women. America decidedly does not have a long and ugly history of discrimination against conservatives.

Really, is that so hard to understand?
