Over the weekend, Santorum called the president a "snob" for wanting every American to go to college:

Weigel punctures Santorum's fantasy:

The thing of it is: Obama hasn't told the lumpen proletariart to go to liberal arts schools and become indoctrinated in left-wing thought and a cappela. His universal college call, which took on form in 2009, was for some kind of higher education. Trade schools? Have at it. Politically, here, it hardly matters. As he does on many topics, Santorum skillfully cracks open a policy issue and finds the culture war walnut within.

Steven Taylor attacks another part of his polemic:

[H]ere’s the weird thing: a study of religiosity and young adults found that those who attend college actually are less likely to experience religious decline than those who do not.
