Why are men always stupid?

In commercials, especially. My pastor pointed out that if you watch television commercials, almost without exception, the man is portrayed as a buffoon. Think about it. When is the last time a man was presented as a good father and provider?

In fact, if you do watch television, watch it with a squint: see if you can discover the patterns at work. Not only are men always stupid, but women are almost invariably reduced to their sexuality. Children are few and sardonic. One might even think that there was a plot afoot to destroy the family.

Oh wait. There is. It started in Eden.
