1. Just an observation

From person who works with about 60 people who get their news from Fox and Co.

If the point of this was to make you feel good and give you a great laugh, the you succeeded admirably. If your attempt was to actually educate him, persuade him (or anyone else reading) then it is a pretty clear failure.

I have actually managed to get some of my conservative coworkers to watch Rachel Maddow and The Daily Show, resulting in thoughtful discussion. It's harder and it takes longer, but i convinced one guy to oppose the death penalty, so it was worth it.

To persuade someone to your point of view, you must respect them and remember they are human beings.

Just something to ponder.
