    Amazing political rant



    Apparently this comes from the show Newsroom, which I've never seen. Probably the most accurate monologue I've heard in any medium in years...

    If I could take your pain and frame it, and hang it on my wall,
    maybe you would never have to hurt again...

    Its a decent show. I enjoy it, though it gets a bit to left-leaning sermony for my taste from time to time. Sometimes Sorkin hits the nail on the head and other times he sets up debates just to knock them down while preaching.

    Liked this rant in particular from the show:

    Jeff Darlington@JeffDarlington

    Something wrong: Wallace ends season on bench. Tannehill ends season on ground. Dolphins end season with loss. Philbin ends season with job.

    I love this show. And that speech in the original post hits it dead on. When I first watched that speech on HBO I was riveted.

    One time we mixed a bulldog with a shiatsu. We called it a bull****.

    I have a problem taking him seriously as well. I like the rant. But I've traveled enough to know that America exceptionalism isnt based on stats. The rest of the world is dull and intolerant.

    Thats a pretty broad generalization.
