Are People Really This Retarded? Big Bird Romney Comment. Adam Carolla.



After hearing the reaction to Romney saying he would cut funding to PBS I have to ask - are people really this retarded? You would have thought he said, "I hate PBS" or "I hate Big Bird*."

And the media fuels half of it. Do you really think he thinks that the way to balance the budget is to get rid of PBS? I think some people actually believes that is what he said.

I don't know if people are getting dumber, they don't listen or they don't understand basic logic but it's gotten worse in the past ten years.

People hear a news bite and they jump on board without hearing what was really said or thinking it through.

A similar recent story that pissed me off was when Adam Carolla  was asked, "Who is funnier? Men or women?" He sited some funny women but said in general men are funnier than women. He never said, "There are no funny women." But from the reaction you would have thought he said that. And think about it. If you got 100 people and asked them to name the top five funniest people they know do you think it would be split 50/50? Please.

He also got s%^t from his comments because he said, “When you’re picking a basketball team, you’ll take the brother over the guy with the yarmulke.” Is he incorrect? The answer is no.

Thoughts?

*Is that the worst Big Bird costume or what?

And can I tell you that there's something I hate about costumes where you can see the person's face? Like in the Big Bird and Cookie Monster costumes? If you're going to wear a costume suck it up and have your face hidden.

Well, I don't know if I agree with the "Men are funnier" comment. I will say Carolla's book "Not Taco Bell Material" was pretty good.

Would have been more effective with Oscar the Grouch? Homeless, no insurance, most likely on government entitlements.
