Are you one of them small-gubmint conservative weirdos? A critter who cringes when someone tells you they're from the government and there to help you? Well, answer this: are you, or have you ever been . . . a fan of The A-Team?
Because, yes: one of Rachel Maddow's guests has, with a straight face, advanced the argument that Mr. T and company were complicit in undermining Americans' belief in the benign powers of government. David Sirota made an appearance with Maddow on her MSNBC show this evening to promote his book that advances the A-List-as-enemy-of-government-love theory.

Rachel Maddow guest claims Mr. T undermined our trust in government. A-List ping to Today show list.
I pity that dyke...
Whoops: that should have been “A-Team” ping, not A-List!
Rachel doesn’t like black people.
For a show with a lot of bullets flying around, no one ever got killed. It must have been a government conspiracy....
Hey. Leave the A-Team alone!
Ah PIT-y da racist!
There’s an A-Team ping list??????? If so, I MUST be on it! I found 100 episodes on Netflix over the weekend and much to my wife’s chagrin I’ve been watching them at every opportunity since then!
All I can say is... "I love it when a plan comes together!"
Not to mention the special grenades which only seem to catapult the bad guys through the air instead of having any real fragmentation or blast effects.
But, but, but, obama took a Haliburton executive with him to Brazil. Is it the same Haliburton?
I thought it was the Woodstock generation that undermined our faith in the government. But, oops, a lot of them are now in the government.
I blame it on Gilligan’s Island.
The thought of being marooned on a tropical island with MaryAnn and Ginger zapped the will of ordinary men to continue on with their dreary lives.
Just wondering, how come neither of them ever got pregnant?
Proffessor too busy tinkering?
Captain from the ole British school of sailing?
Thurston didn’t have a steady supply of his ED medicine?
Gilligan, nuff said.
Hey Maddow Don’t forget The Dukes of Hazard, that show taught me that all public officials are overweight, well dressed southerners who constantly are working on crooked, yet harebrained and zany schemes to steal family farms. Also, if law enforcement is pursuing me, and I manage to evade capture, preferably by jumping my car over some well placed road construction then, under the “Southern Gentleman’s Amendment” to the constitution, all pending charges must be dropped and law enforcement can not arrest me at any time in the future for the offense I was being pursued for, this also applies to breaking out of jail or tricking a dimwitted arresting officer. Also, if I am ever captured and convicted of a crime, I lose my rights to own a gun, yet the law guarantees even convicted felons the right to use high explosives attached to arrows.
I don’t got no time for jibba-jabba, foo
and I bet nobody died in any of the episodes ?
Better to blame Conservative and patriot Dwight Schultz than the TV show. The guy is great!
It rolls off my back. Ridicule doesn’t mean anything - even from people you’re supposed to wear knee pads around, like the scientific community.
Last night I watched the one where Face marries the heiress so her scum fiancee couldn’t. It turned out that he had killed her father and her father had taped the murder on a secret tape recorder under his desk. But no, nobody died on screen...
BTW, did you know that there was a different person playing Face in the two hour premier episode?
(Ten years ago / In 1972), a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn’t commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire... The A-Team.
and here I thought I’d made the A-list. Shot down again :(
