Let Them Eat Cake at the University of Chicago

THIS IS HYSTERICALLY FUNNY. George Saad writes about the nuttiness and otherworldliness of the U of C, where Barack Obama "taught law." Saad recently moved into an office on the campus and blogged about the experience on his "Let Them Eat Cake" site: Seeing people driving cars with Obama flags hanging out the window and Change buttons adorning their shirts, I get the sense that only the Graduate School of Business remains the bastion of free market ideology on campus. Saad relates how out of touch the Leftist Drones on the UC campus seem to be. He details his encounters with the brainwashed student defenders of totatilarianism: Later they defended the Chinese revolution to several terrified Oriental businessmen whose parents probably were slaughtered by Mao. They also tried to defend the standard of living in North Korea as opposed to South Korea, and when I called them on this, they responded that North Korea has failed because it is a little half country split by imperialists. I responded that South Korea is also half a country, which the now petrified Oriental businessmen appreciated. Read the entire, intensely funny post...
