Quote# 15488

The average American out there loves the show "24," OK? They love Jack Bauer, they love "24." In my mind, that's as close to a national referendum that it's OK to use tough tactics against high-level al-Qaida operatives as we're ever going to get.

Unfortunately you don´t understand the difference between fiction and reality. That you enjoy a particular show doesn´t NECESSARILY mean that you agree with the values promoted in the show.

Not close enough, I'm afraid.

That makes as much sense as saying that the average person advocates gangster style killings because Pulp Fiction and the Sopranos is popular.

9/30/2006 7:45:15 PM


That's utter nonsense.

9/30/2006 7:48:17 PM


Non-sequitor much? Oh wait, it's FOX news, that makes sense. If you spread fantasy as reality for too long, you start to lose the ability to tell the difference.

Holy logic failure, Batman!

I absolutely love the show Nip/Tuck, but that doesn't mean I think it's a good plan to get lots of plastic surgery and sleep with every single person in the world.

Not to mention that I really don't think it's a good idea to run the country based on what the \"average\" American thinks is a good idea. Of course, that's a republic for ya. What was it Shaw said, something about democracy ensuring that a country will be governed no better than it deserves?

Laura, take your own advice: shut up and sing.

What? You're not a singer?

Then just shut up.

\"The average American out there loves The Daily Show, OK? They love Jon Stewart, they love \"The Daily Show.\" In my mind, that's as close to a national referendum that it's OK to replace Laura Ingraham as we're ever going to get.\"

Here. Fixed.

I love scrubs right. So do lots of other people. Does that mean its okay for doctors to all be completely crazy and incompetent?

9/30/2006 9:38:43 PM


So now public policy should be set by the fraking Neilson Ratings?

You are seriously fucked up. You do realize the most common non-work use of the internet is porn, right? And that the top revenue section of just about any video rental joint who has one is the adult section? So by your own logic, all public policy should be decided by having all the congressmen hump each other on the Senate floor, and the last one to \"let go\" gets to write the bill.

A lot of people love the Simpsons too. Does that mean most people think you have the intelligence of Homer?

9/30/2006 10:05:32 PM


I enjoy the Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. That doesn't mean I advocated costume-rape (the forcing of someone to change clothes). Or blackmail.

Tiny Bulcher

I fucking love The West Wing. So do many many other people. So Jimmy Smits is the next Pres, yes?

(And Teri Polo for First Lady, you lucky people).

I actually screamed reading that.

That is such... all I can compare to this level of a combination of ignorance and mutilation of fact would have to be Fox News...

People also found hogan's heroes amusing, are POW camps a good thing? Or how about MASH, that series lasted longer than the war it was based on, are piles of stupidity holding up the saving of the lives of soldiers good things?

Actually, I may be able to have some fun with this logic.

I liked Shawn of the Dead. Should we just go to our local pub to wait till the \"zombie\" infestation ends?

10/1/2006 12:30:53 AM


Referendum through TV....Nice.

10/1/2006 12:31:10 AM


A good portion of the American public liked \"Fight Club\", too; does that mean we should condone anarchy? What if you combine this with the fans of \"V for Vendetta\"?

10/1/2006 1:03:09 AM


A good portion of the American public enjoy Batman, does that mean law enforcement should be carried out by costumed vigilanties?

A good portion of the American public enjoys Star Wars, does that mean we should build giant, planet-destroying space lasers and establish a Jedi council?

A good portion of the AMerican public enjoys The Simpsons, does that mean we should paint everybody yellow and force them to have wacky misadventures?

10/1/2006 1:10:39 AM


Wow, another idiot who wants to use fiction to justify torturing and killing people. Let's all pretend to be shocked. Laura, you need to get up off your ass and get out in the fresh air once in a while. Go visit the real world for once, and remember to take your medication.

10/1/2006 1:24:30 AM


*assumes fetal position* fuck..... fuck.....

10/1/2006 3:14:34 AM


Gee and they adored Seinfeld. I guess that means it's OK to be a self-obsessed, whiny, neurotic assfuck!

Oh wait, that point's probably lost on you right.

Ummmmm, I'd love to see Laura use this philosophy on Sex in the City?

\"The average American out there loves the Friday the 13th Series OK? They love Jason Vorhees, they love \"Friday the 13th.\" In my mind, that's as close to a national referendum that it's OK to dismember horny teenagers vacationing in the countryside as we're ever going to get.\"

Moreover, as Allie McBeal was so succesfull, let´s make all kids lawyers.
