Cenk Uygur is insane!

Cenk Uygur, a man I have known about for a long time as the host of the radio program The Young Turks due to its popular YouTube channel, got his own show on MSNBC after Keith Olbermann got the boot.

He's insane.  People like Lee Doren of the popular libertarian YouTube channel How The World Works have gone after him in the past, but expect a lot more people in the media and blogosphere going after him now that he has a much bigger megaphone.  (Bill O'Reilly even had images of Cenk during the introduction segment of his Friday show.)

Cenk is claiming that the country is overwhelmingly liberal.  In a video embedded in the story linked at the bottom of this post (thank you, Mediaite,) Cenk Uygur brings up some BS polls (Penn & Teller already proved the point that all polls are BS) in order to prove this while completely ignoring the last election.

He also makes a huge error about our country.  When his guest told him that the reason more than half of the country wants to raise taxes on people making more than $100,000 a year is because more than half the country makes less than $100,000 a year, Cenk said "We're a democracy!"  We're a constitutional republic which is set up to prevent MAJORITY RULE.  That's the principle Cenk just violated.  He said that's why we should raise taxes on those making more than $100,000 a year.  What a crazy wanker.
