1. link here:

The second segment was Al Madrigal covering a particular Tea Party initiative. Dr. Michael Coffman, an author and Tea Party speaker, told Madrigal that, despite their less successful election last year, the Tea Party is still very relevant. The Tea Party, Coffman said, is fighting to prevent the federal government from interfering in what should be state issues, such as manatee riding. A woman was recently arrested for riding a manatee after a photograph of her doing so was taken.

Madrigal also interviewed Pat Rose, a manatee protection activist, about the topic. Coffman argued that taking away the ability to ride manatees and the protection of other endangered species is just a way for the government to take away people’s personal property. Eventually the United Nations, he argued, is going to take away roads and communities and turn Western countries to third world counties. Rose’s reply was just “no.” Madrigal ended the segment by going to ride a manatee and failing to understand why anyone would want to ride a manatee.

6. I thought this was satire.

When I saw the piece on The Daily Show I initially thought it was satire but it proved to be true - a farce. Is riding manatees the best these idiots can come up with? The deficit? Education for all? Expanding women's rights! Count me disgusted!
