Why do they hate Americans?

Tuesday, January 6th, 2004

Ok, so I seldom write about political topics, but I ran across this story — thanks Anil Dash — and the commercial a conservative advocacy group is running in Iowa is just hilarious.

In the ad, a farmer says he thinks that “Howard Dean should take his tax-hiking, government-expanding, latte-drinking, sushi-eating, Volvo-driving, New York Times-reading …” before the farmer’s wife then finishes the sentence: “… Hollywood-loving, left-wing freak show back to Vermont, where it belongs.”

So, here’s my score:

Tax-hiking:
Not as a rule, though trillion-dollar budget deficits aren’t much fun either

Government-expanding:
Again, not as a rule; but it’s a complicated world and there may be times the government is needed

Latte-drinking:
Sure, though I generally prefer mocha if I’m going this way

Sushi-eating:
Hell, yeah. Yum!

Volvo-driving:
Nope, my car’s German, not Swedish

New York Times-reading:
Well, I work for them. Is that worse?

Hollywood-loving:
Naw, nothing good on TV now that Firefly got cancelled.

Left-wing:
Perhaps. I’m more attached to my personal freedoms than to my checkbook. Maybe Dan’s right and I should vote libertarian.

Freak show:
Guilty

Hmm, maybe I should check out this Dr. Howard Dean, he seems like a hell of a better guy than this bile-spewing farmer. Why does he hate America?
