This is brilliant. I saw this dynamic firsthand while earning a Ph.D. and J.D. degree. The Left is so ensconced, though, it is like a pestilence, an infestation. They have worked at this for 50 years. The Right does not even have the courage to admit openly that it wants "in" to the cultural institutions that the Left already dominates. The mainstream GOP is gutless. Witless. Clueless. The Left dominates, the Right is subjugated. There is no more cultural influence emanating from the Right. It is probably finished. The Right does not even have a clue that IT needs to take hold of these fetid places, start supporting conservative scholars (not just high visibility ones) and move forward. Let it reap the rewards of its stupidity.
