It's of no consequence in the big picture and only keeps eyes off issues that should be scrutinized.

You have forgotten Macman's number one rule.
It is always different for Progressives. Always.
*sigh* Why is this asshat still on American TV, let alone still here in the states?
Can someone please show him the door.
Maybe one of his 25 viewers can tell him the time has come to say goodbye and head back to his beloved England.
If "Duck Dynasty" network A&E feared advertisers would scatter like waterfowl after a shotgun blast because of Phil Robertson's anti-gay comments ... it's not happening.
A company called Skyjacker -- which builds truck suspensions -- tells us it stands solidly behind Phil and the show ... saying it's a matter of God and country -- it's a free country and Phil has a right to his opinions.
I'm a normal guy, not affiliated with anything but normalcy and I'm outraged that what some entertainer says has become a national, even global, issue. I'm right down there with 'meh'.
I don't care what he said or that he got his wrist slapped. It's of no consequence in the big picture and only keeps eyes off issues that should be scrutinized.
Oh, look, shiny...

I don't think he should have been fired as well.
I like Sarah Palin.
But I also like Freedom of speech!
People should not be punished simply because they have a difference of opinion.
Personally, he should have stayed on the air voicing his idiotic opinions.

A&E will still be in business long after Phil has faded into reality star obscurity. Probably a blessing for both.
As Masqua said....there are other much more important problems to face. I don't think this crybaby attitude will serve the conservative cause well.
