    D) Respondents are asshats

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    I think some have comedian confused with political satirist. Can you be both? Sure. Which is why people like Jon, Colbert and Bill are so popular.

    I would have opined the same thing, KNOWING he is NOT a newscaster.. it means nothing, and I would imagine many others would have and have done likewise (see conclusion D)

    A - we cannot conclude this, obviously they can read enough to find their way around the internets.,

    B - nope. there is no way to make this conclusion, the likelihood the results were stacked or the poll was fixed makes it impossible, this is where "non-scientific" comes in,

    People will/would vote for him knowing for a certainty that he is not a newscaster (again see conclusion D)

    C - this is reasonable but we really cannot conclude that for sure.. but this is likely, and it is indicative of the unreliability of the poll - (see conclusion D)


    The assumption that people who watch the Daily Show confuse him for being a newscaster is completely absurd.

    During the election in 2007 I heard that term all the time from reporters and the like - it's use is quite common though I was taught that it was offensive and I've never used it.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    I always found it bizarre because white is a color too!

    Re: Maher: Obama Not Acting Like A "Real Black" President

    Would this change Maher's mind?

    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Re: Maher: Obama Not Acting Like A "Real Black" President

    A couple of thoughts...

    1-Bill Maher is a comedian with "**** you" money...which is to say he is well enough set that if you dont like it he has no problem saying "**** you"
    2-There IS of course a tremendous double standard. If a conservative of any nature (politician, actor, comedian, or any other public figure) said "Obabma should act more black by ________" that person would be labelled a racist.
    3-We have a tendency to take **** like this too seriously. He could have just as easily said "he needs to act more like a Guido..."hey...don do what I say and Ima trow you offa do roof...fuggedaboutit" and it wouldnt have rankled most of the people that are actually upset about the joke.
