“In other words, he doesn't dislike them simply because they're Republican, he dislikes them because of the values that they have as Republicans. That's not prejudice, it's judgement.”

“Does the same logic apply for religious affiliation?”

“Being progressive doesn't mean being free from opinion. As long as a certain set of values are espoused by a specific group, knowledge of that group and it's values - as well as subsequent disagreement and dislike - does not qualify as prejudice.”

“My comment was not directed solely at them - but rather the total effort of all nine people on the stage singing Afternoon Delight - it was dreadful. That may have been less their fault than the guys from Anchorman - I just object to the writer of the article blithely referring to the result as nine part harmony. It was God-awful.
Whatever your taste is in music - it's as valid as anyone else's. I don't put down anyone because there is no factual basis for liking art - it's just whatever moves you. (unless it's nine people singing horribly out of tune - in which case, I object :-)”

“nine person harmony"?????
Surely you jest. While I appreciate the comic talents of all involved (especiall the really funny music of One Direction) that was nine person dissonance. It just goes to show you - take away the Auto-Tune and these folks are helpless.
It was funny but completely atonal. My cat sings better.”

“I know it's easy to put down One Direction as a boy band, but after hearing them sing live last night The Story of my Life, I got nothing to say except these guys are very talented.”

“In your own mind. I've been designing websites since 1996, and I've never pronounced it with a hard G, because I looked it up in those early days to find it was pronounced with a soft G.”

“This man is sadistic fool whose long term in office only underlines the fact that he appeals to the absolute worst in human nature - ignorance and mindless vengeance - neither of which is in short supply in Maricopa County. People like to feel that these inmates are getting "justice" and that jail should not be a "country club". Console youselves with those ideals if someone you love comes to live under the kind heart of Sherriff Joe. This is the worst kind of populism - appealing to the worst in our populace. As depressing as Sherriff Joe is in terms of humanity, he is nowhere near as depressing as the citizenry that keeps electing and supporting him. This is the same mindset as those who used to attend public hangings.
Happy Thanksgiving Joe - you miserable excuse for a human being. You were born in the wrong era. You would have been a star in 1930's Germany.
And to all of his supporters, I can only hope that one day you are allowed to enjoy this particular brand of justice yourselves. I'ts so easy as a spectator. How the ignorant love to play judge and jury. No justice is too harsh when it's being exerted on the other guy, right?
The quality of mercy is not strained.”

“Thank you. I posted pretty much the same thing when I saw the original article and was subjected to howls of outrage for being a "downer" and having a "crappy life" myself - among other things.
A shave, a haircut and new clothes are not going to cure alcoholism, drug abuse and mental illness - nor are they going to suddenly instill the discipline and motivation required to attend meetings and/or counseling. The flippant response from the organization that made this video ("if he gets arrested fewer times this year than last, that's progress") underlines just how serious these people weren't. I guess after the checks clear it's easier to be off-hand about it. I feel sorry for the subject of all of this attention. He was used as a compassion stirring, fund-raising dupe.”

“Even if the only difference between gay marriage and hetero marriage was the use of a particular word to describe it, it's still discrimination. If we are going to call one marriage a "civil union" then we should call all of them that.
As far as your objections to the historical meaning of the word marriage, you should read up on it's actual origins and how it was purely a legal concept before it came to represent a religious rite. As far as the extent to which this seems to annoy you, I can only suggest that you try evolving. It's relatively painless.”

“Dressed as a cotton picking inmate in blackface but he "didn't understand that the costume would be interpreted as racist".
How much latitude are we going to allow people with this type of post-event apologetic BS? "I'm sorry, I didn't realize it was racist"???? What other reason could there be for the combined elements of this costume? Disgusting.
It's really frightening to me that this guy is an armed officer of the "law". He should be fired and not allowed to work in the public sector again. With so many people struggling so hard to make this country's shameful history of racism a thing of the past, we do not need civil servants engaging in moronic perpetuation of cruel stereotypes for fun. Kick him to the curb and let him know that intelligent people aren't buying his bogus "apology".”

My guess that is nobody really wants to know. It's too much fun to speculate.
As someone remarked below, Andy had great comic timing. Thirty years is LONG after the optimum punch-line moment. I don't believe it.
