I still don't know what the hell Acorn is. I think if it was really important I would have known by now.

Most people still don't know everything that ACORN does and not one single conservative knows 95% of what they do

I don't have any problem with the ad, even if I don't like the agenda. I'm pro-choice, not pro-abortion. I respect his mother's decision and certainly understand how it resonates with him. That is not a choice every woman will or can make. The commercial is not going to change any minds.

I'm not enamored of abortion, but I understand it and don't want the choice taken away. Talk to me about potential life once you've taken care of the needs of every unwanted and uncared for child. I still may not agree, but you'll have shown me you actually care about children in fact and not as an idea.

Ah yes. Nothing like double standards.

Welcoming gays = "polarizing"
Conservative churches = "appropriate for air"

^ That was in 2004 when they still had a "policy" (funded by big corporate sponsors) about politically charged ads.

Now that the advertising dollars dried up on the corporate side, the playing field is wide open now, so to speak.

Actually, it will be interesting to see if other special interest groups ante up. Not necessarily productive or worthwhile, but definitely interesting.

Yes. And this ad might open up the flood gates. There will still be "rules"- the word abortion never even appears in the ad. Networks better be prepared for problems with standards for these ads.

I don't know enough about Tim Tebow to determine if his religious fervor plays any role in any dislike for him-do you diamond?

the Left's "outrage machine"?!?!?!?!?!

i admire your chutzpah.

but not even this is enough to make me care in the slightest about the Super Bowl.

i'm all about the Winter Olympics and The Oscars.









(i mean that semi-ironically)

That was pretty funny, coming from the guy who actually, for reals, equated Nazis and Socialists.

My outrage machine broke down and I can't fix it

I care about the Super Bowl only because I can't help but root for the Saints
