Aaron Sorkin is a Twisted Old Vacuum Bag of hair and dirt

"Aaron Sorkin is a Twisted Old Vacuum Bag of hair and dirt". Hah!

This is what the show does.

This is what the show does. They have a bastardization of an Occupy Wall Street person on it, and bash it. They have a bastardized Tea Party person (though I think this is where they hit the nail on the head), and bash it. They put a crazy Ron Paul supporter on there (everyone knows that they exist), and bash it.

They're doing the same with Obamadrones, they've done the same with social conservatives, even the environmentally liberal.

Basically, the show is criticizing people who don't know facts and yet are ardent supporters of a certain "thing/person".

Your analysis is way off. I

Your analysis is way off. I have yet come across a "crazy" RP supporter as shown, it is a "racist" stereotype for lack of better word...can't believe it is shown on TV...the clever scheme of babble head vs. seemingly well dressed dismissive "sophisticated". This show writer hates RP and supporters...the rabit hole goes deeper.


Thanks for the context.

Oh, I do saaaaaaaaay

he's a batsy old crank. He's all piffy in the snifflywigs. The man's gone all toffy on the wogglywoblies why caaaaaaaan't you see he's just plain dwinklewinkly pinklypoofies. Oh my oh my!

No, you would much raaaaaather look at me dahling, look at my pretty face, I know everything dahling, that's why they have me memorize my lines oh don't you know. Oh and also.....

I'm Brittish. Don't you see? And I'm so very terribly afraid that having a rational, reasonable conversation with you is quite impossible.

Be brave, be brave, the Myan pilot needs no aeroplane.

Dumbest show on television.

And that is quite an accomplishment considering the vapid drivel that passes for programming nowadays. Seriously, I caught one episode of this show and literally had to spend 3 hours listening to Steven Pinker lectures in order to get my IQ back to its original level.

Not that I support his characterization, but he's a writer -- and a progressive liberal. The other character's attack was merely ad homenium and defamatory, not substantive. It's akin to people calling Obama a communist Muslim.

Sorkin is great at what he does. He's also been an avid and longtime drug user so perhaps he could find the principles of freedom relevant to his personal situation.

I have no clue who this

I have no clue who this Sorkin person is. He sounds like a retard.

The show sucks

I watched a few episodes at my coworkers suggestion , I pointed out to him a couple times when they tried to mislead people about the tea party . We both concluded the show sucked after 3 -4 episodes its propaganda for sure .


Who the Heck

Watches this crap. I mean really? Who watches this? If my wife made me watch this. I'd divorce her.

This is a pure example of Sheeple.

So funny how the people at the table act like they are so smart LOL.

"There's no such thing as bad

"There's no such thing as bad publicity."

Sure, it's generic horse crap propaganda to us, but at the same time this piece is also awakening to many others.

People know what's up. Americans are not deaf, dumb, and blind...the old media only makes it look that way.

Sorry to be blunt, but the average Joe watching this would think that the, "Arab dudes," are against Ron Paul and the hot, outspoken girl is obviously for him.

Propaganda works both ways today.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

This confirms my theory that

This confirms my theory that people like Sorkin are too comfortable in their little bubble to affect change of any kind. There are millions like him. Until the population gets the full dose of fascist hob-nailed boot to the face, nothing will change. Nothing will change until the day people lose everything - then they will lose it. Educate people on the alternative - the principles of liberty we inherited from the Enlightenment. Government is force!

I have been thinking about it for the last few minutes. And who the hell is this guy. Never heard of him. After watching his pathetic video why are we even getting outraged about it. IMO just another nobody trying to draw attention to himself.

If this guy is someone of importance. I missed the memo.

I agree except that goofus is

I agree except that goofus is representative of a whole bunch of clueless people out there. It really is pathetic.

I even watched it. Good to know that they still consider RP to be a threat. I am assuming this is a new post. Didn't go to the youtube site

wow that was totally brainwash t.v.

i cant seem to reason that people would actually take this serious?

As an Indian guy who's a Ron Paul supporter

I do not approve that message. How pathetic, that's why I stopped watching that show after the first few episodes. The trailer made it look promising, but it's nothing more than revisionist history...of revisionist history.

Clearly they are targeting young adults. Where this propaganda fails is that the young people are yuppies; however, young people today are mostly out of work and living with their parents. They can't relate...

Propaganda comes in many

Propaganda comes in many forms, but thankfully blatant cases such as this are so transparent that only children fail to see through it.

Aaron Sorkin is a useful idiot.
