Yet another weird SF fan

I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

An Accidentally Revealing Yiddish Curse

One of the more recent of the Yiddish curses for Republican Jews reads:

May the Republican politician you fundraised for ban the teaching of evolution at your son's high school. And may your otherwise brilliant son, with perfect SAT scores believe that evolution is a controversial theory within the scientific community. And may he write as much on his application to Harvard.
Apparently in LeftWorld, even allegedly-brilliant students believe only what they're told. The above curse was apparently posted by someone who thinks that learning stops at the school exit, that students cannot check what they are told in other sources, and that the “brilliant” students mindlessly parrot back what the teacher told them. In short, it was posted by someone with the mental initiative of a turnip.

I suppose this does explain why leftists are so eager to become teachers. On the other hand, I suspect they are more effective with the dolts.

In the ideal world, a brillian 17 year old who doesn't agree with the scientific orthodoxy - EVEN IF IT IS CORRECT - would be an ideal candidate:

* intelligent
* bold
* in need of education

apparently in lefty-world, though, not reciting the proper pledges of intellectual allegiance is an utter disqualifier in someone (whether aged 17 or 57).
