An intellectual whore is someone who sells out their intellect to any subject, however unlikely, undeserving or unworthy, in the pursuit of personal gain / kudos / attention or basically just to show off.
My incredibly clever friend who used to write underground 'zines is now making millions marketing merchandise to the 'youth'. He is such an intellectual whore - he'll lay his brain down in anybody's bed if the price is right.
