Four years ago Howard Stern sent one of his staffers into Harlem to ask Obama supporters what they thought about his campaign promises, only thing is that they intentionally swapped Obama’s and McCain’s policies. Sadly, all of the Obama supporters sad that they fully supported McCain’s policies and choices (pro-life, Sarah Palin) when they were attributed to Obama. Sorry, there is only audio here.
Despite all of the publicity from his stunt four years ago, Stern tried the stunt once again, this time completely mixing and matching the facts to the degree that even my West Highland Terrier could tell that the reporter was mixing up the facts:
Everyone always turns to the founding fathers when discussing “what is America about?” When it comes to the franchise, the right to vote, that is not a great place to start because the founding fathers only allowed white, male landowners to vote. I do buy part of the landowner argument, they argued that you had to have skin in the game to have the right to decide how to govern. Obviously we all feel that a wider right to vote is appropriate in this day and age, but after hearing these interviews I really think there should be a baseline requirement that you know what country you live in and some other basic facts.
