The Daily Show Makes Anti-War Protestors Look Silly/How Original!?
What, no interview with Medea Benjamin? Selectively quoting enthusiasts can lead to endlessly ridiculous language. But is this really the argument? While it is disturbing that the protesters don't address the problem that their protest has a "nimby" quality (i.e. not in my backyard) (will they also go to Oakland?) (will they also go to the University of California, with its millions in Defense contracts?), it is also the case that people have a responsibility to confronting and acting on the local level.
