I always find it funny when the right wing blowhards on the radio spout their yearly "I hate cyclists" speech. It's a rite of spring in America. Some shock jock or political talking head will do a bit about cyclists needing to be off the roads, and how fun it would be to yell at/throw at/run off the road some ghey cyclist (we must be ghey because we wear equipment suitable to the activity we're doing, and that equipment happens to be tight fitting, kind of like football tights).
What I find humorous is that they continue to get the exact reaction they want from both sides of the argument. They get a heated debate that fuels their ratings. SCORE!!!!!
But beyond that, I think the entire viewpoint of cyclist hate should be counterpoint to the right wing message - America is great, our freedoms make us great, and we are right in going to war whenever and wherever we need to in order to "defend" those freedoms. So the basic tenet of this anti-cycist argument would be: Americans enjoy the freedom to do whatever we want, unless you're a cyclist, in which case those freedoms don't apply to you.
