    The most ironic thing is that all those who scream "ZOMG if u love Obama ur a socialist!!1!" have absolutely no idea what actual socialism is like. Pity there's no such thing as a time machine, I'd send them to Eastern Europe in the 1970s for a couple of years to get a proper taste of it. Or, alternatively, send them to Cuba or North Korea for a year or two. I'm sure their naïve viewpoint would improve.

    Jon Stewart points out the irony of an Irishman and a Jew bemoaning how America is changing to accommodate ”those” kind of people. Bonus points for Bill O’Reilly lamenting the end of the “Leave It to Beaver” era…y’know…mourning the demise of something that never existed in reality.

    Y’know, given that O’Reilly is actually highly educated and hyper-intelligent (WARNING-language), I wonder how much of his show and books are an act. There’s no way he could be ignorant of how the Irish were once regarded in this country.

    Just one of the many reasons I don't have one.

    Edit: I think O'Reilly's more of an act than say Glenn Beck's stuff is, but he's also intelligent enough to keep it grounded enough in reality (and not be say overtly offensive like Limbogus or out there in outer space like Beck) to not turn off the audience he's hoping to get.

    Wow.

    And you know how loudly the GOP would scream if a liberal business owner banned Romney voters.

    But I suppose it's OK if their side does it, just like it's OK to spend federal money on programs they agree with.

    Uh, how exactly is this guy going to know who voted for Obama anyway?

    Does this really mean "black people can't buy guns here"?

    Good luck with that.

    The mom's actually being quite reasonable, which is good. I'm glad to see some Romney voters accepting the defeat gracefully since we usually only see the hardcore ones you act like melodramatic gits about it.

    On the other hand it was a **** move to post a video of her kids acting like this online, so...

    ... Actually, while I hate to admit it because his views are blegh, he seems to have actually done a pretty decent job of putting together those videos. Strong composition, my boy! Now go read some more so you actually know what you're talking about and try to not invoke Godwin. It never looks good.

    Also keep your shirt on. That part is stylistically stupid aside from just being philosophically dumb.

    I refuse to condone or encourage an "artist" based purely on aesthetics. We must kill him with fire.
