Rick Santorum sounds like an idiot

It’s becoming harder and harder to admit that I’m a Republican.  I still have the believes that government is not the answer for all human ills and that personal responsibility trumps the constant use of government safety nets.  But this party has turned into the political party of supporting ignorant, white, Southerners that detest anything new, agnostic, or educated. 

Take for instance the idiotic statements by Rick Santorum; who has succeed in becoming the Vladimir Zhirinovsky of American politics with his recent statements about California universities.

“…..seven or eight of the California system of universities — don’t even teach an American history course. It’s not even available to be taught.”

Having good knowledge of California’s university system, I’m happy to tell the former Senator from Pennsylvania that U.S. History is a required course at California’s colleges, with a specific emphasis at the University level.  Part of the reason I push AP U.S. History is because those students entering the U.C. system can get a required course out of the way when they pass the AP U.S. History exam, something I dare Mr. Santorum to take right now.
