I Love Idiots

Man, I've always thought that Ann Coultier was an idiot, but this video purely demonstrates her immense knowledge of Canada, geography and politics. The phrase "we allow them to exist on the same continent" is uttered more than a few times. Some other jerk off named Tucker Carlson is also in the video, but he sounded a bit more tongue in cheek.

Via Going Canuck.

And Americans wonder why nobody likes them anymore.

Tucker Carlson is the bow-tied jerkoff on Crossfire whom John Stewart gave a spanking to a few weeks back. And he's actually *feuding* with Stewart over it. It's a one sided feud tho, John is above such things ;)

And re Oneiros' comment... remember that ann Coulter does *NOT* represent the entirety of the american people. I get so pissed at comments like this. She's a very low-notice person, I didn't even know who she was until Al Franken mentioned her in his book. She's a conservative hack who obviously isn't that smart. She's a friend of Bill O'Reilly, and a recent study showed that people who watch Stewart's The Daily Show are actually more likely to be college educated (something like 60-70% of respondants had a college degree and watched Stewart) than watchers of O'Reilly and coulter (where it dropped to something like 30-40%).

Coulter and her ilk are on the most radical side of the right and actually speak for a very small percentage of the population. They're just loud and get a lot of attention. Most of us are very moderate (which is why elections are turning into "lesser of two evils" types, since the candidates sound similar at times), and rather quiet... and think that she's just damned crazy.

I know what most Americans are really like, after all I chat with them regularly, and I've met a bunch of them in person. I even have some American relatives. The problem though is that people like Coulter continue to get airtime on television shows. And of course, since nobody puts good news on TV, people like her are the ones that are broadcast in other countries as an example of American opinion.

I don't know if you followed the last Canadian federal elections, but the Conservative party (Canada's answer to the Republican party) were doing very well in the polls, and were threatening the Liberals. Then some prominent people said, "If you want Canada to become another America, vote for the Conservatives." And as a result their popularity dropped enough for the Liberals to win again (albeit with a minority government this time around).
