Bwahaaa!My sister, who is 43 years old and has a master's degree in math, and who I love deeply, told me in the space of 2 minutes on our last Skype call that:(1) All the Republican candidates are stupid, especially Michelle Bachmannand (2) "I get all my news from The Daily Show and Colbert".I shit you not - that's a quote. So I kinda choked on my own face just now watching that video. HAVE THEY BEEN TALKING TO MY SISTER?Granted, she did admit the second point kind of laughing, as a concession that she doesn't really know what she's talking about, but still. The point was made.I bought the Goldberg book on Kindle by the way, am about a quarter of the way through it, and it's pretty awesome.
My sister, who is slightly older than I, is "one of those." NPR and NY Times. Daily Show and Colbert because they're so funny AND smart! Jon Stewart is not only brilliant, but is hot. Fox is evil and implants weird sounds vibrations in people's heads. And ALL Republicans, not just the candidates, are stupid AND evil, including me. She thinks Obama is wonderful, almost God-like, just as the NY Times has been telling her, and that I've FINALLY shown my true racism -- AHA! I KNEW IT!!!!! -- after all these years because I don't like him.We don't talk politics. I tell her that she's a socialist only because communists starve.
