If the elite, liberal college professors want to know why there are so few conservatives among their ranks, I think I can explain it in one sentence. “Those who can, do; those who can’t, teach.”p>Looking back on my own education, I can tell you that by far, the best undergrad and graduate school professors I ever had were the ones who had prior or parallel careers in the business world. The worst professors I had, and there were plenty of them, were the ‘career’ academicians, the ones who spent the ten years following high school ‘studying,’ and had been ‘teaching’ ever since. Most were pompous windbags who craved the sound of their own voices above anything else and who devoted a whopping 4 to 6 hours per week to classroom instruction. And these are the people who, like Howard Dean, claim that Republicans never work a day in their lives? Amazing.
