Does social psychology need an Alan Sokal? Does it now have one?

Blogger John Rosenberg explores this topic in a new discussion of the anti-conservative bias in social psychology. By new, I mean this doesn't just go over what Jonathan Haidt already point earlier this year, but points to a concrete case where social psychologists assume that the definition of a good person is a person who supports affirmative action and the banning of violent video games. Sadly, the primary author, Krishna Savani, doesn't appear to be an Alan Sokal in waiting. Maybe next year we'll have one.
