Maybe the answer is that, as pointed out in the column, states were bribed with promises of grant money. Of course, it requires critical thinking to grasp that, rather than, say, the thought processes of someone who believes "oil companies are the most profitable in the world" when profit margins for US oil companies are low compared to most other US companies or "individuals cannot negotiate a market wage against [gasp] a conglomerate" when the notion of monopsony has been disproved and companies cannot offer lower than market wages BECAUSE they must compete in the labor market as for any other resource. Apparently, reason and research are beyond liberals entirely.
