Video: NBC's David Gregory Challenges Santorum on Support for Romney in 2008

In 2008, Rick Santorum endorsed Mitt Romney as the conservative alternative to John McCain. As a staunch conservative myself, I preferred Romney to McCain at the time as well. It's not like Santorum chose Romney over Reagan. That said, it was a fair question on the part of Meet the Press's David Gregory to ask. Santorum answered it fine; it was an obvious attempt at a 'gotcha' moment, which I have no problem with.

Would love to see Obama asked about his support of registered socialists in the Democratic Party. Using that standard, Romney is very conservative and if this is Gregory's best effort to catch Santorum in a lie, maybe it's time to start whipping out three years worth of lies from the occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Newt Gingrich: 'I'm an Amateur Paleontologist'

At a campaign stop in Iowa, Newt Gingrich was asked a question about his position on global warming / climate change. Newt insisted he has never supported Cap and Trade and cites his testimony on Capitol Hill right after Al Gore. The confusing message he sent by sitting on a love seat with Nancy Pelosi in an ad to fight 'climate change' notwithstanding, Newt has now referred to himself as 'an amateur paleontologist.'

Uh, maybe political schizophrenic is a bit more like it.

Video: Ron Paul's 9/11 Truth Problem Growing

Does anyone but me get the sense that Ron Paul has to walk a fine line with 9/11 Trutherism similar to what Mitt Romney has done on abortion? Ron Paul has been courting the Truther vote ever since the theory that 9/11 was an inside job began to surface. Now that he's a top tier candidate in Iowa, appearing on mainstream media outlets, he has to distance himself from them.

Check out this rather defensive exchange Paul had with ABC's Jake Tapper:

That is a far different answer from what Ron Paul gave to a Truther in Los Angeles. When asked why he won't come out publicly about 9/11 Trutherism, Paul says it's because the issue is too controversial, not because he doesn't believe it. Fast forward to the :52 mark.

Columbia Offering Course on Occupy Wall Street, Requires Participation

The Anthropology Department at Columbia University has a new course - 'Occupy 101.' Yes, the movement responsible for tens of millions of dollars in damage across the country, several deaths, rapes, assaults, thefts, disease, and untold amounts of collective human waste in public places now is being taught at Columbia.

The catch? You have to participate in a protest to get full credit.

Via New York Post:
Columbia University is offering a new course on Occupy Wall Street next semester — sending upperclassmen and grad students into the field for full course credit.

The class is taught by Dr. Hannah Appel, who boasts about her nights camped out in Zuccotti Park.

As many as 30 students will be expected to get involved in ongoing OWS projects outside the classroom, the syllabus says.

The class will be in the anthropology department and called “Occupy the Field: Global Finance, Inequality, Social Movement.” It will be divided between seminars at the Morningside Heights campus and fieldwork.
Higher education continues to seek the lowest common denominator.
