The War of 1812? Really Piers? You would have us believe that we hate you because the British burned the Capitol during that war? Really?
Hate to say it, Skippy, but most Americans don't even remember the Alamo, let alone the War of 1812. Most of us are blissfully unaware of our own history unless we are talking about our favorite pro sports team or fashion designer.
Shouting down your guest only proves the old legal adage - if you don't have the facts on your side, argue the law. If you don't have the law on your side, argue the facts. If you don't have either on your side, just argue. Piers Morgan is nothing but an @$$hole with an accent.
