This video is hysterical.

Well, it’s not really, but it would be were it not for the fact that thousands of people watch that assclown every day and form opinions based on what he says. This kind of ratings whoring has been allowed to pollute the national discourse in this country for far too long. How can we reach common ground on political and social issues when the average Joe has been brainwashed into thinking that the “other guy” is laughably wrong, perhaps even evil, and certainly unwilling to see things from another perspective? Anti-intellectualism short circuits any semblance of meaningful debate, and with it the opportunity to explore and incorporate better ideas and move forward as a country.

Oh well. I guess we’ll always have American Idol to fall back on.
