An Interesting Dichotomy

John Stewart (The Daily Show) pointed out and interesting dichotomy at work in this video. Apparently Arab and 'decent family man' are at least vauguely dichotomous positions if not directly oppositional ones. why don't we all do our best to nurture fear?!?

Oh **##*!! I had not seen this particular clip. This just keeps getting better and better (in the very worst of ways!) It leaves me speechless...ignorance in this country has never been so highlighted. And what's sad is that I don't think the McCain platform has done anything to combat until recently when they started getting flack for being negative. Up until that point, they consistenly insinuated his link to terrorism. Unbelievably ridiculous. I'm telling you, I have never been so tempted to move to Canada!!

if only moving to Canada might prove to escape from this kind of bigotry...
