The Corner needs a dictionary

I am all for serious efforts to document the extent to which academia tilts Left, and I see no problem with highlighting actual instances in which individual professors use their classrooms as political soapboxes -- academic freedom does not mean immunity from criticism. As far as I can tell, however, the website getting so much media attention is something of a blunderbuss.

One entry found for blunderbuss.
Main Entry: blun·der·buss
Pronunciation: 'bl&n-d&r-"b&s
Function: noun
Etymology: by folk etymology from obsolete Dutch donderbus, from Dutch donder thunder + obsolete Dutch bus gun
