Feelings on Clarksons Hate For America

I was watching a bunch of top gear episodes today and realized that with some of the new GM cars, clarkson is running out of reasons to hate them and coming up with some pretty petty things.

For Example
There is one on the CTS-V and he has a 4.2 AWD S4 with the stig drive him chase him on the track and the stig can never catch him, and he talks about it handling really good, BUT his reasons against it were retarded
-It Bongs
-Too Expensive (I would guess that the S4 is more expensive and doesnt perform as well)
-And it feels cheap, but he cant think of any real reasons, he just feels like it does

Seems like blatant ignorance to me

Also I started watching one with a TVR and a C6 and he starts out by saying it has a live axle, NO, and a 5.7, NO.

Also he always bitched that they are plastic or fiberglass, are no nice european cars fiberglass?

Oh and he bashed and bashed the C6 and it ended up running like a 1.28, way up on the power board.

How do you guys feel about it?

If you're part of the 8% that rock out everyday, put this in your signature

Owning a DSM is like having retarded kids. You get angered and frustrated by them yet you love them to death.

He's definitely biased, I've seen in many episodes, but then again, he hates all cars--just some more than others lol.

Greek, people have the right to hate America, but they need reasons lol. Besides, everyone knows you guys hate us because we convinced Mr. Gorbachev to tear down that wall.

Some of what Clarkson says is more for humour rather than ignorance on his part. He's opinionated and everybody knows it. I guess that's why he comes across as ignorant sometimes. I personally still think he's one of the funniest guys on TV!
