i think he just wanted newsom to admit there are familial issues in the black community, and he wouldn't even do that
I believe he admitted the best he could while being sensitive to the nature of the problem. If Carolla thought he was going to get a politician (any politician) to come on his show and say that all black dads are deadbeats and the kids are all dumb, then he is living in a dreamworld. Newsom said family issues are a problem, but he said it's not the biggest problem or he wouldn't rank it #1. Btw, there are other big issues, like drugs and incarcerations..
he's a Lt. Gov and he was talking about state traffic laws
I didn't get that. He did talk about the move the car out of the road policy, but it seemed like most of the issues Newsom said were local ordinance issues. That's why they kept bringing up the Mayors race. I could be wrong though.
you missed the point. he said he knew he couldn't pass the bar, but was smart enough to know that...unlike the mayor of LA
No, I got it, but I never find it funny. The bar is a tough test and is hard to pass. People are supposed to fail, it doesn't make them dumb, it just means they aren't ready to practice law. I know people that took the ACT a half dozen times to get a better score. I didn't make fun of them for getting too low of a score. So I don't get why he is bringing it up..
what did he say that was so stupid last night about social issues?
It is just oversimplification like he always does. He does it in everything he talks about. I have read his books and he does it in there as well. There is some great common sense things in there, but he just points things out. Like if you can't support a kid, don't have them. Well that's great, but what do you do about those that do? That's just one example.
Btw, I am a huge Carolla fan. I read his last book, enjoyed "the Hammer" (very underrated movie), the car stuff is great and his movie reviews with Simmons are awesome. I just hate that he is becoming a mouthpiece for the right. It doesn't fit him and the ideas are too complex for his simple, down to earth point of view. I just wish he would get away from it..
