The American Association of University Professors recently issued a statement opposing Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s proposal to spin off the state university system as a quasi-public authority, calling it “a radical assault on one of the nation’s premiere institutions of public higher education, consistent with his attack on Wisconsin’s labor movement and his undermining and privatizing of such other public goods as K-12 education and state natural resources.”

No one can take a tedious boilerplate statement like that and find the humor in it like the Democrats, who urge disbelievers to “Take it from the people who know:” university professors!
