Of course, with the presidential election just around the corner, leftists are using the authority of the classroom to advance the political ball. Too bad for Professor Sharon Sweet of Brevard Community College in Cocoa, Fla., who didn’t realize that requiring her math students to identify their political party and sign a pledge to “Vote for Barack Obama and Democrats up and down the ticket” was a no-no.

She apparently is now on leave. But that’s good for her, as she’ll have more time to work for, the Obama-Biden website from whence she printed out the voter pledge card.

The school year is young. Still so much time for campus leftists, otherwise known as “the faculty,” to impose their one-sided world view on a new generation of knowledge seekers, while administrators, also called “the PC police,” curb freedom of speech and seek uniformity of values and opinions.

Who knows? Maybe one day conservatives will be part of the minority studies curriculum.
