Archie Bunker

I don't hold the Norman Lear oeuvre in the esteem some people do. But I did an "Archie Bunker Call your Office" last week on the item at 2:08. I remembered this from my youth and have grown to suspect that Meatheadís father-in-law and Glenn Reynolds are correct.

The Hollywood template:

Stereotypical character: "People should be empowered to defend themselves."
Laugh track: 'hilarity'

Stereotypical character: "People should get what they pay for."
Laugh track: 'hilarity'

Stereotypical character: "If every culture is valuable then so is the western white anglo-saxon culture."
Laugh track: 'apoplexia'

And thus, "everybody knows" that these ideas are "stupid."
