Stephen Colbert on Rick Santorum and teaching history in California

Rick Santorum recently “read something out of California” that indicated how bad colleges there have gotten. They don’t even teach American history anymore, Santorum asserted.

“That is an outrage,” Stephen Colbert said on Tuesday. “The only thing that would be more outrageous is if this were true.”

Well, it’s not. Public colleges in California do offer degrees in American history. Well, the University of California in San Francisco doesn’t — but it happens to be a medical school. Santorum just pulled that fact out of his … heart, Colbert said.

“I certainly hope that when Santorum moves on to the California primary June 5, he does not get an intestinal blockage,” Colbert added. “Because I don’t think the doctors out there are as qualified as Santorum to pull things out of his ass.”
