Wow, you learn something every day. I had no idea that the majority of the University of California schools don’t teach any American history at all. Thanks, Rick Santorum! Gosh, I wonder what they do teach, then. History of Lesbian African Marxist Muslims, probably. Or maybe he means that the defunding of public education has gone far enough that the UCs have completely eliminated the humanities, so it’s a sort of trick point, because they don’t teach any history.
Hey, I guess I should go look at their catalog because now I’m kind of curious.

And it’s the same everywhere except for UC San Francisco, which has decided in that peculiar way of medical schools that it should focus on medical training.
Gosh, does that mean Rick Santorum said something that’s so wrong it isn’t even a lie? How could that be?
