    and exactly how this video is not fair? Cuts a little close to the bone…huh?

  2. john personna says:

    Unfair in the sense that while it says true things, it doesn’t balance with other true things?

    I didn’t hear any lies, though I had enough by 3:05

  3. Dave Schuler says:

    You have a higher tolerance than I do, jp. I’d had enough by 2:00.

    I did the same two minutes as Dave.

    It’s not that it’s unfair, it’s that it is overlong. Like every SNL skit ever.

    Brevity is the soul of wit. Feel free to quote me on that.

    These things are almost always worthless and lazy. The basically formal is; Person A is informed and rational, and Person B is little more than a worst-case stereotype of their counterpart, drawling out vapid talking points or things people would never actually say.

    Sadly, people do actually say things like that. Although in real life, it’s usually an argument between two Person B’s from different camps.

    I made it 50 seconds in. Person B is just a little too stupid to even be a passable foil rather than a simple strawperson.
