More Spew From Bullshit Artist Santorum

Fraternity brothers and professors of Rick Santorum from his days at Penn State are publicly refuting the GOP candidate's claims that he was constantly being oppressed as a conservative voice at a liberal university in the late seventies.

The New Republic interviewed Bob O'Connor, one of Santorum's old political science professors who taught Santorum in four different classes. O'Connor objected to Santorum's persecution charge. "He really has a rich fantasy life," O'Connor told the magazine. "[Penn State] in the 1970s was not exactly Berkeley. I resent this sort of accusation [that] I and my colleagues graded students on the basis of their political attitudes. Ridiculous.”

Santorum's college buddies are also fairly shocked by their friend's assertions. The recollections of his Tau Epsilon Phi fraternity brothers don’t fit with the image that the former Pennsylvania senator has crafted as a suffering conservative oppressed by university liberals.

"I’ve gone through it," Santorum has claimed. "I went through it at Penn State. You talk to most kids who go to college who are conservatives, and you are singled out, you are ridiculed-- I can tell you personally, I went through a process where I was docked for my conservative views. ”

Was there any kind of oppression at the frat house? "Not the group that I hung with," Tau Epsilon Phi fraternity brother Bruce Elliehausen says. Fellow fraternity member David Vondercrone backed that up: "I wasn't aware of any oppression of any sort."

Advice From A Moron With Three College Degrees

“I understand why Barack Obama wants to send every kid to college, because of their indoctrination mills, absolutely,” said GOP candidate Rick Santorum. “The indoctrination that is going on at the university level is a harm to our country.”

At the Americans for Prosperity rally in Michigan, Santorum bashed college education yet again, saying: ”President Obama wants everybody to go to college. What a snob.”

Defender of the Constitution?

Rick Santorum told "This Week" host George Stephanopoulos today that he didn't "believe in an America where the separation of church and state are absolute."

Last October, the wacko GOP candidate said that he "almost threw up" after reading JFK's 1960 speech in which he declared his commitment to the separation of church and state.

Santorum also told "Meet The Press" host David Gregory that separation of church and state was "not the founders' vision."
