And Now, Your Daily Dose Of Santorum: Yeaaaaah, Here Come The Rooster

Ladies and gentlemen, it seems we are at our favorite part of the campaign season: The part where wacky stories from the candidates past come out. And while today, on Super Tuesday, we have still yet to find out in which factory Romney was assembled, we now know that good old Rick Santorum used to be called “Rooster” in college.

According to Huffington Post, “Santorum wasn’t ostracized for his conservative politics at Penn State University, where he was an undergraduate student in the 1970s, as he had claimed. Fellow Tau Epsilon Phi fraternity members recalled Santorum as a guy who enjoyed regular poker games, Steelers football and beer-drinking.” They spoke to a few of Ricky boy’s old frat-bros, who discuss Rick’s affinity for holding parties in his dorm room, rolling kegs down the hall, and that fellow students called him “Rooster,” and “Rooster liked to chug.”

According to his sorority little sister, “[Rick/Rooster] was amazing. He could chug a beer in like one gulp.” But it wasn’t all fun and games for Rooster, his roommate told HuffPo, “Even at that age — he had the discipline … He was able to have a good time and maintain his grades.” So, just in case you were starting to like him, don’t worry: He was always that guy you hated.
