Frog Boil University

Mother Jones' take on Beck University:

The forthcoming institution o'learnin', appropriately titled Beck University, will "explore the concepts of Faith, Hope and Charity and show you how they influence America’s past, her present and most importantly her future." Its faculty features such luminaries as a free-market economist whose degree is in psychology and a Texas Republican Party bigwig who hates, hates, HATES church-state separation. It even has an Ivy-style crest—featuring a feather, a buffalo, and the disembodied head of George Washington—and a Latin motto, "Tyrannis Seditio, Obsequium Deo" (roughly translated: "Revolution against tyrants, submission to God").

Classes on Faith 101, Hope 101 and Charity 101 start tomorrow. There is no tuition for Beck University, but you have to be an "Insider Extreme" subscriber to different Beck products, which evidently start at $6.26 a month.
