Just when you think you've seen the dumbest hysteria possible, the loons come out with something like this to top it. Can you believe it?
And this time, it's not just Fox, either. Apparently, every network has decided to milk this laughable "controversy" for all they can. (At least, Jon specifically mentions NBC, ABC, CNN, and Fox. Maybe CBS kept its sanity?)
You know, I would have probably joined them when I was ten - and worried that they might make my little brother a "sissy." But by the time I was 12 or so, I think I'd grown up enough to understand just how stupid that fear was.
Hey, I had an excuse. I was just a child, myself. To see grown adults acting like ten-year-olds is just... well, it's really depressing, actually. A little boy painting his toenails - even neon pink - is not a transgender issue. Jeebus, I can't even believe I have to say that! How dumb can people get?
Jon Stewart is pretty good here. You can tell he's just as astonished - and disgusted - with this as I am. What's next? Really, what's next? And what's happened to us that we've become this stupid?
