My mistake. It's cyclic.

You're right. I didn't take causality into consideration, but as I see it it's a cyclic effect. But at this point of establishment in the American educational system, I don't see conservatives considering professorship as much as they might if universities weren't so biased as they are. I'm pretty moderate, but I wouldn't want to be surrounded by staunch liberals who tend to be very aggressive about their political opinions (as college students especially tend to be).

So, would-be conservative professors are turned off on the notion, meanwhile new liberal professers have nothing dissuading them, so the educational system is continuously repopulated by liberals.

But I still don't think this cause-and-effect argument is as significant as the special interest aspect of it. As I said elsewhere, the Democratic party and liberals tend to have better educational policies, so who would you expect educators to associate with?
