NBC’s Saturday Night Live (SNL) November 1, was one of the most watched episodes in the history of SNL. Sen. John McCain made an appearance poking fun at his campaign and responding to his critics with, “Come on, Obama’s going to have plenty of chances to be president, it’s my turn. Vote for me.” It’s all fun and games until someone gets hurt, but McCain might need SNL to secure a wisecrack gig in the near future.
After Sen. Barack Obama’s 30 minute infomercial on some of TV’s major networks he was seen with the 42nd president, Bill Clinton, at a rally in Florida. Apparently, Clinton, who verbally attacked Sen. Obama earlier in the campaign season for false allegations made against his wife, Sen. Hillary Clinton, finally buried the hatchet. I guess a position in The Obama Administration seems more at reach and a surefire way to regain power over who’s going to wear the pantsuit in the Clinton household.
Sen. McCain’s presidential campaign might be swooning in debt because of expenses totaling $150,000 for Gov. Sarah Palin’s wardrobe. So, let me see if I get this: the country is in a financial meltdown and the GOP is furnishing folks with extravagant wardrobe? Say it ain’t so. What difference does it make whether Gov. Palin wears Prada or Payless? In the words of Sen. Obama, “You can put lipstick on a pig…but it’s still a pig.”
With the media playing a pivotal roll in Elections 2008, Gov. Sarah Palin wet their appetites for competitive media coverage. No sooner had the name Sarah Palin left Sen. McCain’s lips (as his choice for running mate) did the media began to make a public spectacle of her and the entire Palin family. It began with her daughter Bristol’s pregnancy, then, her Downs syndrome baby, her meddling in her sister’s marriage, her bouncing around to four colleges before receiving a BS in Journalism. I even saw an online picture of her in an American flag bikini holding a rifle. Geez! Instantly, the woman became more famous than Britney Sears and was ridiculed for her inability to exhibit vee pee qualities. I feel bad for the woman. She’s definitely going to need a “Shawshank Redemption” if the GOP does not win the race for the White House.
Sen. Hillary Clinton is back on track. It would take a village to discourage her. Although Clinton is spending a lot of time campaigning for her former rival Sen. Obama, make no mistake, her eyes are trained on 2012.
So, in light of all these events, what are you going to do? You might wanna start by getting out and…Vote 2008!
