The Soup's Joel McHale on popular culture (and stupidity)

The Soup on E! has some of the best sarcasm available for public consumption.

Following up on Matt Asay's post about why Google is making us dumber, I ran across this AV Club interview with Joel McHale, host of The Soup on E!. I watch The Soup every week and I am convinced that I should have that job.

AVC: Do you think the war on stupid culture is unwinnable? Are we headed for Idiocracy?
M: Oh, that's a good question. I think the smart people will get even smarter, and the dumb people will get even dumber. But I think they all will enjoy A Shot At Love With Tila Tequila, no matter how you slice it. You know, we keep eating it up. Some of the most intelligent people I know cannot get enough of it. That's a dangerous thing.
