Santorum is Right

Not everyone should go to college. The notion is a liberal fantasy that would only work if the basic idea of what higher education is were to be changed.

But everyone should have the opportunity to go to college and not be impeded by ridiculous social, economic or governmental factors. And isn’t that what Obama means when he dreams of college availability for everyone? Plus, Santorum invalidated any legitimacy his perspective, such as it is, may have had when he cast Obama as a “snob” for embracing education.

He was, of course, stoking the flames of “class warfare,” yet another of the things Republicans routinely accuse Democrats of.

(If I had finished college, I wouldn’t have ended that last sentence that way.)

    On the contrary, if you’d finished college with a *good* English course, you’d quite possibly have learnt that rules like the prohibition against ending a clause with a proposition, or against splitting infinitives, were fabricated by 19th-century grammarians intent on making English conform as closely as possible to their “perfect language”, Latin. People who say that such solecisms are the sort of thing up with which we should not put are themselves part of the problem up against which we are.
