    Yeah, okay. :pathead:
    I'll take that as "no, I'm too full of myself for it to occur to me". :yes:

    Ooh! Has Ricky Gervais ever had a talk show? That might be good for some laughs.

    He wouldn't have the "Squeee! He repeats my opinions back to me, but with an ACCENT" appeal for some of you, but :weep:

    Remember, it's not "squeee! He repeats my opinions back to me!" when it's right-wing orthodoxy you've heard all your life from your racist uncle at thanksgiving.
    That's different, because reasons.
    Beautiful, magic, pixie dust sprinkled reasons.

    That's cute you don't think I would be at odds with family. More of the "to oppose this, you MUST be in favor of that" mindless nonsense. Everyone has to pick a seat at the table you set for your dollies action figures.

    Well, I'm sorry, but it's just brute fact that the "edgy" "anti-PC" brigade haven't brought anything new to the table in...*checks Carlin's death date* 14 years.
    Carlin was seemingly the last carbon based lifeform that could manage going after extreme PC without also tripping over themselves to get the skinheads in the crowd creaming their jockeys.
    Without his mastery of nuance and context, it is kind of binary.

    Well there is a former host of The Daily Show that has literally been going to bat for and fighting congress on behalf of 9/11 first responders and war vets that are getting completely screwed over by the government

    That kind of pampered asshole who scolds the plebs?

    Keep on doing your whatever it is you do though, sometimes the impotent rage is good for a laugh :techman:

    Actually, I like John Stewart, in the balance, for some of the reasons you state. Though that's not to imply I'm co-signing everything he ever said or did.

    "None of the above" is and will always remain a valid choice, no matter how many entitled cartoon people convince themselves they can enforce the binary.

    I like that UA thinks Ricky Gervais isn't a pampered leftie who scolds the right wing.

    But then he does rag on trans folk and Hollywood so he's obviously fine.

    Except you never make it.
    Despite how sneaky you think you're being, you make your preferences quite clear.

    According to terms you set, which are totally objective and not self-serving at all.

    Almost as if I judge people as individuals, rather than trying to stuff them into one of two arbitrary political pigeonholes for my rhetorical convenience. Imagine that.

    You could be replaced with a random phrase generator, and no one would notice.

    Appearance and diction are individual choices. If they want to advertise, who am I to dispute it?

    So you CAN judge a book by its cover.
    Nazi cartoonists will be tittering with delight in Hell that their work wasn't in vain.

    There is a difference between inherent attributes and the ones you choose, and the best way to judge a person is of course by the choices they make.

    Hey, it took you a few posts before you played the Nazi card! You're growing, sport!

    Don't forget to keep the light out and the shades drawn on Halloween to keep those pesky kids away.

    Halloween is accidentally a good analogy. Silly little Hot Topic kids playing dress-up, LARPing Che Guevarra and expecting to be taken seriously.

    Goths, punks, neo-hippies, flamboyant drag queens, none of these people scare me, annoy me, give me the least little eyelid twitch or heart pitter-pat.
    I can't fathom feeling any way about them that disrupts my day.
    They've never given me a sand speck of trouble in my whole entire life.
    Hasn't been a thing.
    And I don't even know any secret hand signals, I promise.

    The fuckers who look "normal" but have the "let's go Brandon" banner that goes across their whole pickup truck, they're the ones you've got to keep an eye on.
    They're the ones who'll back you into a corner saying "groomer" and "queer lover".
    Just before the baseball bats start getting passed around.

    I gotta believe Nebraska has more of the latter than the former.

    Wonder why UA isn't scared of them.
    Hmm..

    I would love for it to be her -- she has the same ability Jon Stewart has to combine comedy with a level of earnestness that keeps her relatable. I thought I read somewhere that she didn't want to go back to a nightly production schedule, though.
