    This thread is a perfect example of how conservatives and liberals are just wired up differently. I remember seeing this commercial and not even giving it a second thought. It seems that when conservatives saw this commercial it was as though a grizzly stepped out in front of them.

    That doesn't satisfy the "America was founded by immigrants" claim.

    Who was America founded by then?

    If someone is offended by that commercial, they truly live a joyless life. Reading comments elsewhere, you get the idea that the fringe part of conservatism is really a messed up bunch of people who steadfastly refuse to understand demographics, fear any change, and live in irrational fear.

    Screw em', it was a nice commercial, this nation is made up of people from everywhere, that isn't offensive, its beautiful.

    It was a great commercial, reminding us that the strength of our country is the diversity of our people.

    But I knew many conservatives would wig out over it. I didn't even notice the gay couple the first time I saw it; laughing that they can't handle that either.

    Coca Cola did great!

    That is impossible for most people. If you are not immersed in a language its very difficult to become conversational in it.
