Barack Obama looks good, and he sounds so pretty. I would be entranced, except for that sniggly little part of my brain that demands logic and intelligence. If only I could just shut that off and enjoy the rhetoric of Barack Obama for what it is, flavorful nothing, like Jello, except it won’t make your fingernails stronger.
Remember the girl who was dating the wrong guy; the girl people snickered at behind her back? She was ‘in love’ with a creep she dreamt was her knight in shining armor. He was cruel to her, cheated on her, mooched off of her, (or all three,) but she couldn’t give him up. He was a bully, a drug addict, a thief, but she believed all the lies and misdirection, made excuses for him, even loved him more, all for a fantasy.
It comes as no surprise that TIME Magazine named Vladimir Putin their very own “Person of the Year.” After all, they can’t even distinguish between male and female, much less good and evil. The only remaining question is what did Putin do to edge out Ahmadinejad and Chavez? The answer probably has merely to do with their publicity schedules. “TIME’s Person of the Year is not and never has been an honor. It is not an endorsement. It is not a popularity contest.” Thanks for clearing that up, but methinks they doth protest too much. Perhaps TIME wouldn’t argue that getting their “Of the Year” cover is an accolade, but in the rest of the world, we view it as such, making their choice an abomination.
Once upon a time there was a scandalous Hollywood story, involving no Hollywood stars, but plenty of deception, outrage, and back-biting politics. (Note: this has nothing to do with Paris Hilton – in the improbable case you consider her a “star.”) The star of our story is a film, but I’m getting ahead of myself. There once was a principled young man named Cyrus, who loved to write and direct.
Rosie O’Donnell loves for us to talk about her… but boy, challenge her views just once, and Rosie resigns. Elisabeth Hasselbeck wasn’t even mean in the face of Rosie’s personal attack (“coward.”) She simply stood her ground, and Rosie-the-bully ran home.
