i think the lesson is not to be on one of the daily shows pieces with an issue you take seriously. because the only thing they're going to do is make you look stupid. it's a comedy show, if they can't make you look stupid, they're not going to air it.
now a large group of people, who would otherwise be indifferent, look at dan barker as a nut that they shouldn't take seriously. and anyone who saw that without actually understanding his point before hand, that sees him in a debate in the future, is going to automatically discount anything he says because he's a conspiracy nut.
