(Watch me piss off a bunch of blog visitors in one post.)
So there’s all this big controversy about the presidential candidates being elitists, right? At least that’s what MSNBC tells me. And apparently some folks are all offended and in a tizzy over it. They think the presidential candidates should be "regular" folk.
Umm, yeah – not so much.
People, we’re not talking about the parts manager at your local Honda service shop, or the owner of the corner dry cleaning store in your ‘hood. We’re talking about the PRESIDENT of the United States of America. I can’t speak for everyone, but I WANT my president to be an elitist. I want him (or her) to be superior to me and everyone I know personally, in every conceivable way. I want him (or her) to be an Ivy League-educated, six-figure-income-making, could-kick-your-ass-on-"Jeopardy"-smarty-pants-being, mo’ fo’. I do not want Bubba with the NASCAR souvenir pennants, drinking his Coors Light out of the can, while revving the El Camino in the driveway, running this country. No offense to Bubba. I’m sure he’s probably a dope as hell guy and I would totally hang with him on a Sunday, grilling burgers and talking football. BUT, I’m just sayin’.
Okay, I’m done.
P.S. "Juno" is out on DVD today! Yay!
