'Daily' video: Wise beyond years vs. unwise inability to get beyond fears
How spot-on is Jon Stewart when it comes gay issues? Well consider this: Yours truly genuinely owns both the towel warmer and AeroGarden that Jon mentions at the :56 mark:
Peter's case is ridiculous, William's case is admirable, and Jon is such a good friend and advocate that you'd think he and Colbert were literally rubbing up next to each other every night the way that their shows currently do. Got it.
Oh and P.S.: Both the towel warmer and AeroGarden would make good holiday gifts.
You should also give props to Mick Foley for appearing in this clip.
Hey, does the towel warmer work?

It does work! You put it in before your shower, By the time you're done, so is the towel.

OMG! That video has me screaming - which isn't good for my cold. I'm very impressed with that child and I do agree with the sentiments that he must be protected. That is our future right there ;p

OMG...tears and hoots with AM coffee. Thank you for putting in Foley to let people know that there are many many of us who will protect these brave kids.. and others.
The Will who Won't ... and a new meaning for the 'Peter Priniciple'.

Thanks for putting this up! I love that kid. He's very mature and articulate. Props to his parents for being so supportive, too.

I love how Stewart pretty much calls the Brookstone guy the child.

Little man Will. What big shoes that kid has! But....of course, the kid's father is as big as Foley.
I think Dad could put the fear in the little spitwads calling his son names!

Peter, like many of the evangelical Christians making the news lately, doesn't seem to understand that while you may have a legal right to say something, your employer has a right to fire you if what you say violates acceptable standards of behavior for your job.
Here's something that may make it clearer, Peter: If you walk up to a woman in a bar and say, "Nice rack, baby," there are a number of scenarios that may follow from that. If you tell your boss, "Nice rack, baby," at work, your ass is going to be fired.
You're not a martyr for your beliefs, dear. You're just astoundingly dim.

As inarticulate as Brookstone Peter is, it sounds strangely like someone has coached him to use words and "phrases" that he is ordinarily unaccustomed to using. I would suspect that's a sign that he's lying. If this isn't the last we hear from "Peter", then the next will probably be the actual (truthful) accounting of whatever "incident" (or "incidents") it was that resulted in him quitting / threatening them with extortion / being sacked / being shit-canned because of an intolerable BO problem / or whatever actually happened.
