      But those uppity elitists write the history books! And they're soooo biased for Obama, as some moron in that same diary wrote:

      Have given this President high marks. You know, people who have a university or Think Tank paying them decent salaries, with decent benefits.. And of course, in exchange for giving whichever party is now in charge a nice rating, those premium lifestyle necessities will continue.
      As some one who works in the academic field of history, that is the biggest load of bullshit I have read here.

      Have you written your Chained CPI/Social Security Betrayal/Obama is a Caver diary today? 100's already have. What are you waiting for?!

          Like, all of a sudden "progressives" are now employing the right-wing talking point of "ivory tower elitists" who work in academia?! WTF?

          As I said, I work in academia. Most history professors pull down around $40-$75,000/year plus benefits, but it depends on where one works and what level of professor one is. Most make somewhere in the middle of that figure.

          Sure, it's decent pay, but it's not like these professors are getting rich to the point where they are far removed from "average Americans."

          People wonder why the President and Democrats don't take this place seriously.

            It used to piss me off but between this and the unhinged "worst president evah!" hyperventilation, I just can't take it seriously anymore.  They've descended to self-parody.

            I read their comments purely for entertainment value now. At times I might as well be reading The Blaze or Prison Planet.
