Opinions, Context & Ideas from the TPM Editors TPM Editor's Blog

Baffling to Foreigners

What disturbs me is that you have a black president who seems to be the most intelligent, politically savvy and morally guided president that you've had in years. And with the history of assassinations in your country, people are allowed to bring guns to town halls and the like (yes i know they're disbarred from entry but regardless, it just seems to stupid to us outsiders).

Further to that, i can't understand how people who have no logically based positions can have and yield some much power in your country. Why does the media give any credibility to these people by even discussing the birther issue. They're morons, and these idiots don't need any attention. Why do the media pay these idiots attention when they have no sound or even half reasonable positions based on any sort of logic?

How can Fox news get away with the lying and manipulation? We as a nation should be deeply sorry we exported murdoch to you guys. I'm truly sorry.
