The Wisdom of Archie Bunker




I do not know who did this video, but it is pretty funny.  Norman Lear intended to make fun of the character Archie Bunker, as a racist reactionary bigot (and granted, in the way he was portrayed, to some extent he was), but often it was the conservative Archie who made more sense than the liberal characters on the show Meatball and Maude (who never made sense).

    First you do the great and shameless Wombat Rule 5 post and now you praise my hero, Archie Bunker.

    You go girl.

    1. When liberals try to mock conservatives, it is funny how the truth manages to rise like cream. For example: The only time Alec Baldwin makes any sense is when he is playing Jack Donaghy.

  2. You might want to take a look at the online article "Malapropisms, or 'The Archie Bunker Syndrome', and frontotemporal dementia" by Mario F. Mendez.
