The Washington Post provides an in-depth look today at the unanswered questions surrounding Scott Walker's decision to drop out of Marquette University in 1990. The subject is sure to receive more attention as the Wisconsin governor seeks to become the first president since Harry Truman without a college degree, and right-wing shock jock Rush Limbaugh thinks he knows just the way for Walker to handle it.

"If I were Scott Walker, you know what I would say about college?" Limbaugh asked, before embarking on a tangent about his own decision to withdraw from college after "refusing to take ballroom dance taught by a lesbian drill sergeant."

Finally, Limbaugh answered, "I left college because I didn't want to be accused of rape someday."

"Now he can't say that, of course," Limbaugh admitted. "But, I mean, just ram it right down their throats. They're trying to create this 'rape culture' on the campus. ... It seems like any man that goes to college could randomly be accused of committing rape."
