Why I Just Can't Hate Jeremy Clarkson

Jeremy Clarkson; You can love him or hate him but you can't ignore him. I've cringed at his strong dislike of Americans, sadly agreed on his low opinion of what Detroit turns out, but also laughed at his jokes about us.

I cannot hate the man no matter how boorish he can be.

Why?

1. Anyone who punched out Piers Morgan in public can't be all bad.

2. He is an entertaining presenter and an interesting writer, several books and two weekly columns in the London Times, one automotive and another on news items.

3. He is blatantly politically incorrect and hates the nanny state

4. The man truly loves cars, lamenting the possible end of the great cars in this film on Top Gear.

  1. Hates American cars, and America in general it seems, and yet bought a Ford GT.

    He can kiss my fat American ass, and I mean that with all due respect.

    1. There are tons of Brits like Clarkson, they mock America because it just galls them that they're the junior partner now. Kind of like the old parent who is bitter that he has to borrow money from his son, and his son no longer takes his advice.
