FAMW: “I would never call a redneck a name.”

With the Democratic National Convention winding down, we here at mwbh wanted you to know that our favorite pundit (and one who is usually as good as the real ones on a given day) Jon Stewart has already noticed what has been obvious to our readership for quite some time, which is that the "party of tolerance" really isn't. Watch them make complete asses of themselves with very little encouragement, for this week's Friday Afternoon Moment of Whimsy.

(No, the people interviewed are not actors. They really do think like this.)

Doublethink in flagrante delicto.

Thanks for posting that video clip. I enjoyed it.

After the examples of unwitting self-contradiction, my favorite part was hearing members of the party that's the home of New Agers, organic food shoppers, nuclear power phobics, anti-gene splicing research, 9/11 truthers, anti-vaccine fretters and a whole pile of other fearmongers and ignorati dogmatically condemn their opponents for being anti-science.

A scary part was how comfortable those Democrat convention goers were as a media guy chatted 'em up about their petty bigotries.
