    Are the people in these videos stereotypical liberals?

    Are the people in these videos stereotypical liberals?

    It is a couple of clips from wifeswap or trading spouses that someone posted on youtube. PLease note that the poll is public.

    YouTube - Stephen Fowler Wife Swap Highlights 2/2
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I don't know how much Wife Swap you've watched but they pick extremes of various groups for a specific purpose. They do it to get ratings because putting polar opposite extremes in the same house is damn good tv. They also do it in hopes that both sides can learn things from eachother and move to a more balanced middleground. What I find humorous is that the clips you posted neglected to show much of the life that the other couple lived. I'm willing to bet they lived extreme lives as well. That's typically what Wife Swap does. It's quite sad that you think a show like Wife Swap would provide a viable and realistic view of any politically motivated person whether they be Liberal or Conservative. It's also hilarious, but not that surprising, that you actually think that these people (who are major douches, by the way) are stereotypical Liberals.

    when I hear the word "stereotypical," it implies to me that someone has oversimplified a group, or attempted to paint some of the most cartoonish and blatantly whacked elements upon the entire group, as a whole. has jamesrage oversimplified? yes he has. mission accomplished.

    you've found your stereotypical "liberals." congratulations.

    Personally, when I think of stereotypical liberals I don't think of rich, pretentious, anti-American, European douchebags. I think of long haired hippies who listen to Amy Goodman religiously and eat granola.

    hooray for TV! Otherwise building opinions would involve reading!
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    actually most hippies have trustfunds.

    I just find the right's claim to the unpretentious working class slightly improbable given their opinion of unions and their relations with corporate power.

    find me a Republican longshoreman.

    Had it not been for the Engishman's "I'm a Tree Hugger" Tee-shirt, I would have bet the farm he voted Republican. He's not like any typical liberal I have ever met.

    Nope, you must have hair that is at least 2 feet long. And you have to reek of patchouli and bong water. Because as we all know, all Liberals smoke pot while they are furiously plotting to take over the world and destroy family values with their homosexual agenda.
