The Harvard Crimson has had it up to here with alums who go on to publicly disparage the school. It ticks off examples including Sen. Ted Cruz recalling the "Marxist" law school; Bill O'Reilly recalling "pinheaded" professors; and Mitt Romney bashing President Obama for spending "too much time at Harvard," even though Romney himself has two degrees from the school.

"Such episodes of treachery are apparently attempts to curry favor with the more anti-intellectual members of our body politic," says the editorial. "Yet it is finally time that we say enough is enough. We at The Crimson urge anyone who plans on one day scoring political points by maligning Harvard to neither apply, enroll, nor graduate from this fine institution." Click for the full piece.
