25. "Might as well be a Republican"

"While in college, he wrote a column in The Daily Pennsylvanian criticizing affirmative action recruiting at the university and suggesting that all students should be "judged on their merits rather than their physical characteristics." He supported the pro-life position on the abortion issue, criticized the radical aspects of the feminist movement, and felt Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas was treated unjustly during his Senate confirmation hearings. He also criticized organized religion as based on mythology and as a divisive force between peoples.

He has stated that he worked for a time for Republican former New York Congressman Joe DioGuardi.

Uygur supported the Gulf War of 1990–1991, and supported the War in Afghanistan from its beginning in 2001 until 2009—though he has strongly opposed the Iraq War. He supported the 2011 military intervention in Libya.

......He previously supported capital punishment, but now opposes it largely due to multiple exonerations of death row inmates since its reinstatement."

I don't buy his conversion for one moment. When Cenk burst onto the talk scene, there was notoriety & money to be made in opposing Bush, and like Ed & Arianna, he jumped on that bandwagon for his own personal enrichment. Don't trust him.
