A tip to the hat to Bryan Preston for catching this comment and also to Will Franklin for bringing it to my attention. In case you didn’t hear Texas’ very own Democrat State Senator Judith Zaffirini recently made the most elitist comment of the year. I personally don’t think this comment can be beat. In fact, I believe we should go ahead and shut down voting and give her the coveted Texas Ivory Tower Award. She really deserves it and I bet she would like to thank her PhD in Communications for helping her earn this prestigious award. You can view her comments below:
QUESTION: Perry graduated from A&M, which initially embraced the “reforms” (although A&M Systems Chancellor Mike McKinney faced a firestorm and resigned last week). Does Perry have something against UT?
ZAFFIRINI: Rick Perry doesn’t understand higher education. He doesn’t have a graduate degree, and he graduated a long time ago with a major in something like agriculture. I have a PhD, so I understand the value of research and teaching. He just doesn’t understand it. In the legislature, we’re used to dealing with regents who love their universities, who bleed orange or red or whatever their colors. These new regents appointed by Perry don’t seem to have any school spirit. They seem suspicious and cynical. They haven’t taken time to understand what the status quo is; they just want to change it.
Well done senator and congratulations!
