“I understand why Barack Obama wants to send every kid to college, because of their indoctrination mills, absolutely. The indoctrination that is going on at the university level is a harm to our country.”
— Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum, in an interview with conservative radio host Glenn Beck.
Santorum and Beck mulled over a number of social and political issues, but hearing them converse about education is like Abbott and Costello discuss quantum physics. Higher education makes people think outside the religious and social boxes in which their families and communities place them. Therefore, in Santorum’s convoluted view, it’s better for them not to go to college and just stay ignorant. I guess that’s why he and Beck get along so well. Add Sarah Palin into the sloppy mix and it’ll be the holy trinity of stupid!
