Well, normally I blog on Tuesday, but I wanted to wait until after the election to make my predictions. I think Barack Obama will win and win big. (Whew, I am glad I got that off my chest.)
I know that wasn’t too difficult to predict, made easier by doing it the day after he actually won big. As most of you know, I try to stay away from talking about politics on my website but I figure if there is a time to write something political it would be the day after the Presidential election.
Having been invited four years ago to participate in an inaugural gala for President Bush makes it highly unlikely that Barack’s people will call my people and ask me to join in the celebration this time around. Well that’s enough politics.
I am looking forward to the Apostles of Comedy tour starting in Chandler, Arizona next week. My fellow Apostles and I have been doing a media blitz for over three months, announcing the release of our movie and the kickoff of our tour. The irony in all this is, “Joe the Plumber” is more famous than any of us Apostles. You know, if Barack Obama really wanted to help the downtrodden, he could have stopped in at my house and let me ask a few questions.
The first one I would have asked is “Where the heck is the political center?” I keep hearing how he needs to govern from the center, but that only makes sense if you know where the middle is. Perhaps you, the reader, can help me out in that. I can guarantee you that Al Franken’s view of where the political center is, is way to the left of where I think the political center is. So let me know; what issue defines the center for you?
Anyway, the beauty of America is that so many people can have differing opinions on serious issues and still have dinner together. So take someone who disagrees with you out for a cup of “Joe” this week and have a civil discussion about something you vehemently disagree on, like who is going to win Dancing with the Stars. I can’t believe they got rid of Cloris Leachman, but I digress.
It is my opinion that this is the only way that America will ever come together as a nation, the media and our elected officials have no desire whatsoever of seeing a politically united America. Besides, it may be the only way conservatives will be able to express themselves after the Fairness Doctrine is implemented. Not that our government would ever try to stifle political discourse.
If there was ever a reason to shelve the Fairness Doctrine it would be after this election, obviously the American people can think their way around talk radio.
Here is a thought, maybe John Kerry and Al Gore lost their elections because, well... they were John Kerry and Al Gore.
God Bless America
