    This schmuck is 24 years old, which means he was around 15-16 when Bush took office, around 17-18 on 9/11, and around 20 when we invaded Iraq.

    His entire adult existence--along with several million other twentysomethings--has been inundated with wingnut propaganda.

    How many more like him (you said millions)? And still getting their information from Fox News? In what parts of the country do they live? And what do they do for a living? What kind of jobs have they had? How many attended college? How many didn't?

    (We get curious of these things.)

    One more question, though:

    Bush years didn't invent crazy racist idiots, but they sure as hell fanned the flames and encouraged them

    Did not any of this start before Bush was elected, by Fox News? Does anyone remember of know to what extent Fox News was fanning these flames before the 2000 election? Did they intentinally keep things quiet so as to help Bush win? (The only issue I remember prior to the election was the Enron price fixing scandal, and if I recall correctly that had yet to be tied to Bush).
