Yes, I know that this character was supposed to be a satirical take on racism and bigotry and pride in being ignorant. But for too many people, Archie Bunker legitimized being an ignoramus and a bigot. George W. Bush is a direct descendant of Archie Bunker, a person who was proud of being a know-nothing.
Without Archie Bunker, we would not have been afflicted with Rush Limbaugh.
So damn the character of Archie Bunker to hell and, yes, while this is a violation of the ground rules of this blog, damn to hell his creators. If they are not already there.
