Why do politicians lie?

“I was just reading something last night from the state of California,” Santorum regaled. “And that the California universities – I think it’s 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.


Santorum’s campaign headquarters could not be reached to clarify what Santorum was reading, but a perusal of course catalogs from the University of California, California State University and California Community Colleges reveals a plethora of courses focusing on U.S. history.

Each of the state’s 112 community college campuses offers a course in U.S. history, according to community college spokesperson Paige Marlatt-Dorr.

At the UC and CSU, all undergraduates must take a U.S. history course in order to graduate, UC and CSU spokespeople said.

The only UC campus not to offer a U.S. history course is UC San Francisco — a medical school.

This guy would conceivably ask for my vote?


  1. Why do dogs bark? Why do birds sing?

  2. Touche....but so obviously lie in the age of instant fact checking?


  3. "This guy would conceivably ask for my vote?"

    Of course not, you godless heathen. People like us have no place in his new, better... well, I was going to say "world", but I think the word I'm looking for is "theocracy".
