MTV… Whatever happened to the music?

Viacom is hosting an hour long, commercial free program across MTV, BET, and CMT networks for President Obama three weeks before the mid-term elections which are almost guaranteed to decimate the Democratic power lock in Washington D.C. Viacom claims that the program is not political, it is simply “A Conversation with President Obama.”

What a load of bullsh*t.

“We’re not giving an hour of free time to the president to freely express his views. We’re hosting a town hall with 250 young people to ask questions of the president,” Viacom spokeswoman Kelly McAndrew. “This is not a campaign appearance. This is a town hall discussion.” Because Viacom says the hour long program is not political, they have no obligation to give equal time to the Republicans.

250 young people that were gathered together through a casting call, advertised on Backstage.com: “MTV, BET and CMT are casting the audience for town hall meeting with President Obama. Shooting Oct. 14, 4 p.m. in Washington, D.C. Seeking—Audience Members: males & females, 18+,” the casting call says, “To ensure that the audience represents diverse interests and political views, include your name, phone number, hometown, school attending, your job and what issues, if any, you are interested in or passionate about. Also, provide a recent photo and short description of your political views.”

Why is it that the liberal media will not just admit who they are? Viacom claims that the casting call is to guarantee the audience is diverse, which in Liberal code means “no one that is on the extreme right wing”… which I am sure by Viacom’s standards is anyone who is pro-life or anyone that didn’t vote for Obama. The network also claims that the questions will not be submitted in advance.

Knowing that President Obama, cannot utter a single syllable without the help of a teleprompter, this claim from Viacom is highly suspect. Perhaps the questions will not be submitted in advance, but you can be damn certain that the audience is being told what they can ask, how they are to act, and what not to say.

This is a staged, controlled, produced, and completely political last ditch effort to help the Democratic Party, and the illustrious bringer of hope and change, Obama to salvage what little they have left of their political reputations.

But, as has been shown time and time again King Obama has that unique Midas touch that turns everything to sh*t, so those on the Right, don’t be too worried, and those on the Left you’ll be wishing MTV actually showed music videos.

His First 100

Not surprisingly President Obama looks back through partisan glasses while claiming to be the leader of the non-partisan movement. He seems, much like all of his supporters, including all of the mainstream media to blame the woes of “His first 100” on George W. Bush. That ain’t new.

George W. Bush and the Republican party are going to be the scape-goat for most of the Obama presidency. It won’t last though. Even the “head in the bowl” kool-aid drinks will have to come up for air after a few years. and when they do. No amount of “Change,” rhetoric, empty promises, smiling faces, and lame jokes will change that fact that inflation is sweeping the nation, America is weaker as a world power, the stock market is a hibernating bear, unemployment is at record levels, and our wallets are empty because with out production the only way to pay for His agenda is to take it from the rich.

Very soon we all be considered “Rich” despite the fact that a great many of us will find ourselves in the grips of poverty.

“Poverty is the parent of revolution…” Aristotle.

Where is the “Change”?

Where is the change that the Obama and the Democratic Party keep talking about? As far as I can tell it is business as usual at the DNC. The recent activity is Ohio is so fraudulent and despicable it harkens back to the Kennedy election and the tactics used to elect JFK. Obama hasn’t come far from the methods that made the Democratic Party a power house in his home city of Chicago. Mayor Daley would be proud…

What I cannot understand is that organizations such as Acorn and MoveOn dot Org support these methods, along with thousands of their supporters. It is remarkable how quickly Democratic voters will sell out themselves, engage in questionable if not illegal activities, all because they hate George W. Bush. Here is a bit of news for all the homeless shelter picking voter chicken hawks… George W. Bush isn’t running.

For years I wondered how the Democrats of this country could support the Clinton’s, with all of their scandals, skeletons, and the “dead bodies” left in their wake, but the Obama following has even topped that. The children singing in an orchestrated, produced, video made to look home grown and spontaneous was down right freaky. I couldn’t help think that there was a firing squad off camera waiting for one child to stop singing, or an adult to not cheer in support. It was like some bad party propaganda video from North Korea.

The State of Ohio and the Democratic Secretary of State take the cake. Changing the rules of voter registration, by mandate, without voter consensus or say so as to allow rampant fraud is disgraceful. For years, after the Al “Internet” Gore was forced to realize the “Inconvenient Truth” about the Electoral College system, the Democratic and left-wingers of this country moaned and groaned and decided that the next Dem would get in “by any means necessary.” Ohio illustrates that they are putting this philosophy into practice.

I am not so naïve that I am just realizing that the Washington D.C. machine, which includes both parties, runs on the fuel of power, of which there seems to be no supply shortage or crisis. But this election, the recent ‘bail out and cover our butts’ legislation that the houses of Congress have been chewing on for the last couple weeks, and the President who is eagerly waiting to sign the bill so he has something other than war in his legacy, has made it crystal clear that America, its people, and its principles come second.

Incest is funny…

Did you hear the one about Barrack Obama sleeping with his daughter? Or the one about Bill Clinton and Chelsea at her 16th birthday party? Of course not, because they are not funny, they are crude and they are way below the standards of even a program like Saturday Night Live… so we thought.

SNL which hasn’t been funny in a long time is still looking to the lowest common denominator to find laughs. Much like Sandra Bernhard, who feels that “Gang Rape” is funny as long as it is inflicted on a conservative, SNL feels that jokes about incest are funny if they are directed at conservatives as well.

I thought that children were off limits when it came to political satire. We never had John Lovitz don a red wig and give us a Chelsea Clinton impression or heard jokes about Bill Clinton committing criminal, un-ethical and offensive acts with his underage daughter Chelsea.

I like a good joke as much as the next guy, and I have been a fan of SNL since the days of Garret Morris, and Chevy Chase, but this is a new low. Has the staff of SNL become so un-funny, un-original and lame that the best they can come up with is an incest joke about Todd Palin and his daughters? Where is the outrage?

It has been well documented that NBC; the home of Keith Obermann, David Gregory, Tom Brokaw, and the Today Show, have been on the left for this entire political season, supporting Barak Obama and bashing the Republican Party, Sen. McCain, Gov. Palin and President Bush at every chance, so we should be surprised that SNL is an NBC programming staple.

However, regardless of who the “Not Ready for Prime Time Players” support individually or collectively, or who producer Lorne Michaels supports, I would hope that a major network like NBC would have some standards in the content in their programming. No one, who has a family with children, can think that a joke about a father sexually abusing his daughter can be funny. It just isn’t possible. I don’t care how far left someone leans, incest and rape are crimes perpetrated on innocent and powerless victims.

NBC and the entire staff of SNL should make a public apology to the Palin family, to Barak Obama and his family; as these “jokes” are made in support of his candidacy, to the Republican Party; for the one-sided bias in news coverage, and to the American people who deserve better than this from networks, professional comedians, and television producers.

I also call on Barak Obama to reach out to his constituency, to be the agent of change that he claims to be, and demand that they raise the bar on criticism and political discourse. I also call on Sen. Obama to condemn the SNL remarks and the remarks of Sandra Bernhard. I ask him to stand up to the left elite, despite the consequences and prove that he is the man he claims to be. I ask him to do this for his wife, his daughters and his country.

She can’t bite her tongue anymore…

Well… she didn’t make my top ten list; she was actually number twelve right behind Bea Arthur. Lindsay has “lashed out” and added her two cents to the debate. She has jumped on the Palin bashing publicity bandwagon that is so “in” with the Hollywood “Celebristocracy”.

Lohan says that “she can no longer bite her tongue” or her new wife’s “when it comes to Palin…” or the election. “I would have liked to have remained impartial, however I am afraid that the ‘lipstick on a pig’ comments will overshadow the issues and the fact that I believe Barack Obama is the best choice, in this election, for president…”

There you have it… if Lindsay says he’s the best choice, he’s got my vote. She would know, after all she is twenty-two, she has been in rehab a few times, I think she still make movies, although, I cannot for the life of me remember a single movie she has been in… or maybe she is a singer? Who cares… she is one of the beautiful people that deserve our attention, admiration and loyalty. Not everyone can make the tabloids on a weekly basis. That sort of media coverage takes real talent… or a lot of booze.

Lindsay, we are all happy that you have found love in DJ Samantha Ronson, and we wish you the best, but shut up. You describe Gov. Palin as “a narrow minded, media obsessed homophobe?” Just because a politician doesn’t agree with your views on homosexuality, doesn’t make them a “Homophobe.” It’s incredibly amusing how the left hates to be labeled as “liberal,” or “elite,” or “unpatriotic,” but they have no problem labeling anyone that doesn’t agree with them.

And who are you to call Gov. Palin “media obsessed”? Are you afraid that you might lose your usual cover spot on the tabloids: “Oh, and… Hint Hint Pali Pal – Don’t pose for anymore tabloid covers, you’re not a celebrity…”

Here is how I define media obsessed individuals: Individuals who perform and pretend for a living, who rely on the media to promote their very existence, individuals who will stop at nothing to get back in the spotlight when their starshine and luster has dulled.

Does that sound like anyone to you Ms. Lohan.

Strong Words from the “D-list”, or is that “Double-D List”

Once again the Hollywood crowd has made the headlines in this time of national debate and critical decision making. The blonde bomb-shell from Baywatch has weighed with her opinion of and some advice for Governor Palin. Advice, that several million Internet video viewers and a few members of Motley Crew will attest; she is clearly qualified to give… “I can’t stand her,” Pam blurted out. “She can suck it!

Perhaps I am being too tough on the Hollywood A, B, C, and D-listers who have something to say. Unlike Matt Damon, Ms. Anderson does have the credentials to back up her observations… Maybe, we should look west by south west, to tinsel town for our guidance in the critical decisions we as American citizen’s need to make.

Here are the Top 10 people I need to hear from before I will cast my vote this November:
1. Gary Coleman
2. Ian Ziering
3. Pat Harrington (Dwayne Schneider from One Day at a Time)
4. Courtney Love
5. Robert Ito (Sam from Quincy)
6. Mike Connors (Mannix)
7. Demond Wilson (Lamont from Sanford & Son)
8. Richard Kline (Larry from Three is Company)
9. John Stamos
10. Gary Busey

Who are the “celebs” on your Top Ten list?

Matt Damon doesn’t like Sarah Palin… so what.

Why is it that the American media and the American people look to Hollywood for anything other than movies and the latest “sex tape” of the stars? I don’t get it. I have never really acted in anything other than a small budget film, so I may not fully understand what is involved in being a star… maybe it does take great brain power.

Some how, I doubt it.

Why must we suffer the opinions of Matt Damon, Alec Baldwin, Whoopie Goldberg, Bruce Willis, the Dixie Chicks, John Travolta, Tom Cruise, Johnny Depp, etc…? Who are these people? They pretend to be other people for a living, and a few of them do it very well. But who are the people behind the plastic surgery, and the bigger than live roles they play. I don’t know, and I really don’t care. When did acting make anyone knowledgeable on politics, or make them experts on foreign relations, or economics?

Sure I like to see Johnny Depp as a drunken pirate, and I really enjoyed Matt Damon as Jason Bourne, but I really don’t want to hear their opinions on anything. What do they know about the real world? Much like Al Gore, I bet it irks Matt Damon when the price of heating his home (I am not sure how many he has) goes up. I bet Mr. Damon gets on the phone each August calling home heating oil companies trying to lock-in at the best rate for the up coming winter.

Here is what Mr. Damon had to say about Gov. Sarah Palin in an Associated Press interview: “I think there is a really good chance that Sarah Palin could be president. And I think that’s a really scary thing because I don’t know anything about her. I don’t think in eight weeks I’m going to know anything about her.” (http://www.breitbart.tv/html/171553.html)

Those are some deep words Mr. Bourne… I mean Mr. Damon. I guess you are really chummy with the Democratic ticket; drinks with Barack and a ballgame with Joe Biden where you really get to know the men?

I guess it’s not their faults. They have a right to express their opinions. I guess we should blame the media. The so called “mainstream news media” has been parading out stars for years. They got to get their ratings. Who cares what the man on the street says about a candidate; let’s find out what Angelina Jolie has to say. Aren’t we all holding our breath to see who Billy Bob Thorton, Tom Hanks, and Denzel endorse?

Perhaps it’s not the media’s fault either. After all, if we didn’t watch it, they wouldn’t show it. So, I guess the buck stops here. It is our own faults. We eat the crap up, night after night. We buy the magazines to learn about Ellen and Portia’s new china settings, where they are registered, and why they hate George W. Bush. We can’t wait to find out who Alec is dating and why he thinks John McCain has no honor. It is really a sad testament to where we are as a society.

We buy opinions and sound bites from sources that have been given credibility because they can pretend to be other people. We trust the face of a character we liked from a movie; “Jason Bourne is voting Obama… but if he is hiding fr0m the CIA, where is he registered to vote?” Oh yeah… He’s a Democrat , voting registration doesn’t matter to them… unless you’re dead. Then it is essential. I wonder who Walther Matthau is endorsing.

The choices we make this election and every election are important. No matter what your particular affiliation is, we should all strive to make educated decisions and not be driven by the bias of media, the spin of the parties, or the beautiful faces of the great pretenders from Hollywood.
