Well, Sink My Car & Call Me ‘Ted’

Emphasis and vomiting mine:

The Naval Academy was ranked 13th in the list of best national liberal arts colleges, above its rival, the U.S. Military Academy, which was 24th. St. John’s College in Annapolis was ranked 56th.

I mean, yeah, you can major in English at Sing Sing on the Severn, but you get a Bachelor of Science for your trouble. It’s an engineering school, for crying out loud! Not the kind of school where you’re

Listening to rock and roll music and bad-mouthing your country

This blog bitterly resents any comparison between Naval Academy Midshipmen and the kind of Godless Commies infesting the rest of academia.

    Just the title of this should get some kind of award. If that’s not click-bait, I don’t know what is.

    None of the five US Service Academies is a liberal arts college. None is a college of any description. All are professional schools.

    “Liberal Arts College” can join “literally” and “could care less” in the ranks of words that have lost their meaning.

    “…the car spins round and round and round and roOound.”

    I think the left would try like H to make the academy students all dress like Teletubbies, if they could get away with it.

    Why after reading you post, do I keep hearing “Village People” and “Show” tunes?
