Halarious! :-)

 
If this CBS show ever actually airs it's going to make for some halarious political news.  Watch how they whine and howl until their 'tribe' wins and then watch them flip 180 and tout their glorious superiority.  (I wonder if they have an affirmative action policy built into the island voting scheme.)
 
I certainly won't be watching the show (I have better things to do with the precious number of heartbeats I have left in me), but will surely be unable to avoid keeping up with it in the news.
 
The last line of the Opinion Journal commentary really cracked me up.
 
Wot fun.

Let That Be Your Last Battlefield
We have never watched a "reality TV" show in our life, and our interest in the genre is only slightly greater than the damage to national security owing to the "outing" of Valerie Plame. Still, we got a kick out of what the Washington Post's Lisa de Moraes called "the stunning news . . . that CBS would divide contestants on the next 'Survivor' into four tribes based on race."

Especially amusing is this reaction, reported by the Associated Press:

"The idea of having a battle of the races is preposterous," [New York] City Councilman John Liu said Thursday. "How could anybody be so desperate for ratings?" . . .

Liu, who is Asian-American, said he was launching a campaign urging CBS to pull the show because it could encourage racial division and promote negative typecasts. He and a coalition of officials, including the council's black, Latino and Asian caucus, planned to rally at City Hall on Friday.

So "the council's black, Latino and Asian caucus" is upset over a plan to divide people up by race? Talk about the pot calling the kettle African-American!

 

Here's Rush's take on it. His caller implied Rush was a racist because he even dared to talk about the show:

New Survivor Season: A War of the Races
CBS rolls out a race-based Survivor show, but it's El Rushbo who ends up being called racist!
