Okay, I’ll admit that we have certain expectations of absurdly glamorous celebrities, but I bristle when I see so much attention heaped on fashion blunders. Do we really care that Mariah Carey wore spike heels with a sweat suit while running errands?
I mean, the other night when I was outside repositioning my sump pump hose in my fashionable sweats and a shower cap, I carelessly threw on a pair of frumpy mukka boots, saying to the sister, “Gee, hope there are no paparazzi lurking about”. Heck the other day, I took a chance and went through the bank’s drive-up window with mismatched socks. Give these poor stars a break. They can’t be perfect all the time.
Speaking of celebs, I think Russell Crowe needs his diaper changed….again. Getting pissy and walking out of an interview because Mark Lawson of BBC asked if he was going for an Irish accent in “Robin Hood” is a bit over the top. Whatever happened to the movie stars of old, who somehow managed to maintain a touch of humility and gratitude toward the public? I can’t imagine Jimmy Stewart throwing a temper tantrum, but then again, Jimmy Stewart was a gentleman.
The whole entertainment business makes me cringe lately. I hear words like “legend” and “immortal” attributed to so many. I say, let’s just step back a bit before we crown some flash-in-the-pan as the best actor, singer, or entertainer of all time. Talk to me in fifty years, or maybe even ten.
Some dope in Bucksport Maine caused quite a stir when he put up fliers recruiting white supremacists. Turns out it was a hoax. He was just trying to show how far some will go to get people’s attention.
“People are afraid to talk about anything controversial. And I think everybody really ought to be able to open up and speak about just anything,” the man told TV-5 in an interview.
News flash. People talk about everything these days. Pick up a rag mag or turn on your TV and watch Dr. Phil or Oprah, for crying out loud.
The tea party is putting on a health care bill reading marathon. That’s nice, and I guess there is a point there somewhere, but maybe they should have done this a while ago…before the vote? I kinda like the tea party. Sure, they have some crazies, but has anyone looked at Washington lately? At least the tea party people have a sense of humor, and they can read, too!
I’m also sick of all the heat Arizona is getting about illegal immigrants. Why don’t we just pay Mexico to build a big ol’ wall along their border, and hire their drug runners to patrol it? We’d be killing two birds with one enchilada. The drug runners would be given meaningful employment and “weed weed” out the illegals. I mean, with all the money we’ve been pissing through, what’s another few billion bucks?
I’ve finally written a letter to Eric Holder. I couldn’t stop myself. I begged and pleaded with him to avoid all communication with the outside world. I can’t take the humiliation anymore. My letter was only two pages long, so I have hope that he will be able to wade through it.
