On his hit sitcom Last Man Standing, Tim Allen regularly pokes fun at Obama-voting liberals. On a recent episode of the program, Allen showed how difficult it can be to talk to a liberal.
According to Western Journalism, the segment opened with Eve, the conservative daughter of Mike Baxter (played by Tim Allen) telling her liberal brother-in-law Ryan about her problem.
“I’ve been researching liberal positions. I Googled ‘How to talk out of your a–‘, but that was no help,” she said.
Ryan then suggests they have a mock debate.
“That’s a good idea. You spew your usual garbage, and I’ll mock you,” Eve then says.
“No, because then you’ll never learn how to defend a liberal’s point of view,” replies Ryan.
“That’s because it has no defense! Zing! How’s that for a cogent argument?” Eve responds..
Ryan tells Eve to practice “saying what a liberal would say.”
“Hooray for taxes! Give me free stuff! White men suck! You mean like that?” Eve says.
Later in the episode, Eve asks Ryan to “coach me on some liberal arguments so I don’t throw up during the debate.”
He responds by bringing up Obamacare.
“Obamacare is the greatest thing to… No, I can’t do it. I’m gonna need a bucket,” she says.
John S. Roberts wrote on Young Conservatives that there is a truth behind this humor.
“Liberals will do anything to avoid a discussion, because they don’t have the facts on their side,” he wrote. “It’s easier to play the racism and sexism cards than it is to actually debate, even though Democrats claim to be more intelligent than Republicans.”
“Last Man Standing is one of the only shows on TV that would allow something like this to make it to air, because it’s one of so few with conservative characters,” he added.
