A great man once said, "Politics is inherently stupid." That great man was me.

Heh heh.

Heh. File this under "Awesome Burns."

I'm taking a class on the history of espionage at my University. The professor, of course,is a loony nutbin who believes that the CIA watches everything she does and comes from most assuredly a liberal stock. She often talks about how university is supposed to be the best time of your life, and fondly recalls how she and her friends would sit and talk about how to "save the world and make the world a better place" over coffee. She then went on to do a law degree and settled for a cushy job at a university. Yeah.

Surprisingly, to her credit, her liberal slant hasn't been all that psychotic. However, some of the students in the class are Grade-A crazy leftist idealogues. When a discussion of the morality of Operation Ajax came up, the professor asked us if we felt such an operation was ethical and if we would condone it if put in Eisenhower's shoes (note to all: it's a very bad idea to badmouth Eisenhower in my presence). It came to the point where this one girl started saying the CIA should have known that it's actions in Ajax would help lead to the Islamic revolution 26 years later, even after the professor reminded her that hindsight was 20/20. The professor, quite appropriately, asked her what people she thought should be in charge of such operations. I could bear this diatribe no more.

"Psychics?" I suggested.

The laughter was well worth the wait.

Of course she actually said that women would be better in charge than men (surprise). Graciously, this was countered by another girl in the class who said she completely disagreed and that she would wholeheartedly have endorsed Ajax. She then proceeded to remind everyone of Condoleeze Rice. That, coupled with the look of disgust on many students' face as the leftist was making her rambling, loony argument, gives me hope for the world.

Heh. Burning liberals gives me great joy.

Psychics eh? That's damn funny dude.

I know people in University now that have to put up with the same ill thought out idealogues. I feel your pain.
