No, it was not unusual for "places of learning" to back the Dems. That is where all the pseudo-intellectuals are!<quoted text>
They pretty much share the same brokers and bankers, except that he Democrats have the universities n thir corner. Not one place of learning backed the Republicans. Strange? Not really. And why do the Dems have the best satirists and political commentators,(satire is not a Repub or CONservative thing -though they ARE perfect targets, what material!), the best and brightest actors, directors and producers. Them fuc*ing intellectuals , "Deys all gay and queer," says the best Repub political satirist.
By the way, I never say "not one place" (All of anything) as there is almost always an exception.
