Wonder how often political donations result in politically appointed positions.

Its about the same with Main Stream Media and the 'entertainment' industry. The schools have become the sanctuary of the Bill Ayers set, want your kid to be brainwashed, send them to college and in no time they will be neo-com's spouting the party line.

Can you add any more detail on the "educational groups" listed in the table? I don't think of the Career College Association and Princeton Review as equivalents to Harvard or the University of California.

Harvard is quite the leftist radical factory isn't it.

The slant is actually less than I expected. I would have thought it would be in 90th percentile more often. I'm shocked that there were university's that favored Republicans..

You mean there still are some college workers that give to Republicans?! Why haven't they been fired?
