Gawker makes fun of dumb Politico article so we don't have to

Brilliant Politico premise? Some academics joining the Obama administration were paid very well by universities.

From Gawker:

It's true! If, after years spent at a good university, you reach the top rung in your academic field, you can expect to pull in crazy six-figure incomes! The crack reporters at Politico dug through the financial disclosures of some professors Obama appointed to his administration and found, shockingly, that they were not broke-ass schoolteachers at all, and they even had benefits!

We officially endorse Gawker's conclusion: "Seriously, there is no journalistic justification for this article."
