WHAT?  YOU MEAN THE INFIDELS GOT FOUR PERCENT?  WHERE DID PROGRESSIVES GO WRONG? – AT 8:45 A.M. ET: 

The figures are out detailing the political contributions of Ivy League professors, those members of the ultimate Eastern liberal establishment who fill our children's minds with such wonders.  From William A. Jacobson at the superb College Insurrection site:

Here’s a little something to remember the next time someone says there’s no liberal bias in American higher education. Nearly 100% of all faculty and staff at Ivy League institutions who made political contributions gave them to Obama.

Oliver Darcy of Campus Reform reports.

96% of political donations from Ivy League faculty & staff went for Obama

96% of the faculty and staff at Ivy League colleges that contributed to the 2012 presidential race donated to President Obama’s campaign, reveals a Campus Reform investigation compiled using numbers released by the Federal Election Commission (FEC).

From the eight elite schools, $1,211,267 was contributed to the Obama campaign, compared to the $114,166 given to Romney.

The highest percentage of Obama donors came from Brown University and Princeton, with 99 percent of donations from faculty and staff going towards his campaign.

Dartmouth College and the University of Pennsylvania’s faculty contributed to the President’s campaign in the lowest numbers, with only 94 percent donating to the Obama campaign.

Below is the breakdown of numbers compiled by Campus Reform:

Brown University: Obama donors: 129 giving $67,728 | Romney donors: 1 giving $500

Columbia University: Obama donors: 652 giving $361,754 | Romney donors: 21 giving $34,250

Cornell University: Obama donors: 282 giving $141,731 | Romney donors: 11 giving $8,610

Dartmouth College: Obama donors: 90 giving $51,018 | Romney donors: 6 giving $2,850

Harvard University: Obama donors: 555 giving $373,556 | Romney donors: 30 giving $34,500

Princeton University: Obama donors: 277 giving $155,008 | Romney donors: 4 giving $1,901

University of Pennsylvania: Obama donors: 376 giving $209,839 | Romney donors: 26 giving $22,900

Yale University: Obama donors: 399 giving $186,834 | Romney donors: 13 giving $8,655

COMMENT:  You may be sure that the campus thought police will root out the offending four percent.  There are consequences, serious consequences.  Modern liberalism is as much a religion as a political movement, and you know what happens when you question the Church. 

I think it would be a wonderful gesture for Obama to grant pardons to all those who strayed from The Path and contributed to Romney.  I'll bet they're almost all in the sciences, or maybe the business schools.
