If anyone is curious about the counter, that's the paranoid (possibly schizzo) marine that got caught trying to smuggle weapons into Mexico and has become the latest rallying thing for the right-wing nutters.

Nice fucking sweater, Glenn.
It turns out that we don't live in the 50s anymore, and most young parents I know have a rule: they pretty much casually swear in front of their babies, and once they learn to talk make sure to mention that there's words that you don't say in certain places. Then there's the "playground" logic. I learned "fuck" on the playground and some other words. The one time I got sent home from school was when I called a kid a "bastard," because I literally didn't know what it meant. The principal sat me down and told me, and I've never said it again. Same with other words like "faggot, retard, slut, whore" and the racially charged ones. "Fuck's" not a bad word. We're just conditioned to think it is. It has a power to get a point across though ("did you read this book? It was great" vs. "did you read this book? it was fucking great!") and can be used as a sexual device ("I want to have sex with you" vs. "I want to fuck you") but I'm no less comfortable hearing the word coming from a 6 year old's mouth than I am from Glenn's (correct me if I'm wrong, but I think he swears quite a bit on this show.)
If the campaign was different, like "Hate is Retarded" then that's where I'd draw a line. These are just cool fucking kids with fucking cool parents.
Yeah.. in all fairness it's a pretty cool sweater. I have a poncho with similar patterns. Beck's choices never cease to fascinate me though. The last one I saw he was wearing those pre-ripped acid washed jeans that was kind of trendy in 2006, and now he's going for ironic sweater.. it's like he's looking at old Urban Outfitters catalogs but getting it wrong. A sweater like that and the undershirt might work, but the blue dress shirt ruins it.

Ghetto kids don't get scarred by cursing. Oh wait that was racist. Goddamit!
