Howard Stern on Obama Candidates

I meant to post this a while ago, before the election, but it's still pretty interesting. This is a bit from Howard Stern's show on the election.

Watch the clip here.

What they did was, they sent a man in the streets of Harlem and asked Obama supporters why they support Obama when they attributed McCain's policies with him. So these supporters say they like Obama because of McCain's policies. It's really weird.

Some of these people even attest that they would be okay if Sarah Palin was vice president. Now, that is clearly McCain's running mate, but these people don't stop to think about what they're being asked. They just go with their candidate.

I wonder how informed people really are on the candidates and their policies. So much crap is published and posted and publicizes that sometimes the wrong information can be stuck in people's heads and there's no turning back. Especially when that information is repeated over and over again, then it becomes second nature even though it might not even be true.

Freedom of speech is a powerful tool, or weapon if you look at it in that way.

So what did you think of the video?
