This is a wonderful companion piece to the video I posted the other day here of John Oliver trashing the dishonesty of a one-against-one Climate Change "debate." It was brought to my attention by erstwhile reader Carolyn Brown. This is Irish comic Dara O'Briain, who I'd never heard of, but have checked out since. The best way I can describe him is as sort of a less angst-ridden Lewis Black. (Or he's a more angst-ridden Dara O'Briain.)
Here, he goes on a wonderful takedown of quack medicine and home cures. As Carolyn points out, this could just as easily be a companion piece to faith-based political "debates' where facts aren't important, just what you believe.
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
