what do you mean i lost my mind?

The celebrity President

with 3 comments

A thought occurred to me this morning.

It has taken about sixty years for our political culture to catch up to our pop culture, more or less.

We have just now elected our first President who is not famous for any actual accomplishments, but is simply famous for being famous.

I, for one, welcome President-elect Zsa Zsa Gabor.

  1. Mom said he’s gonna do something about the legalization of illegal aliens in the US (she watches lots of news channels and I don’t) and other immigration issues, is it true? Maybe you should give the man a chance to do what he can.

  2. Who says I’m not giving him a chance? Even if I don’t want to, the man has the highest office in the land, and the world, for four years. He’s got his chance.

    That does not require me to be foolishly optimistic and ignore his history, his lack of experience, his avowed radicalism, or his total lack of accomplishment.

    He might indeed prove me wrong and turn out to be a good or great president. Given what we know so far, I have every reason to doubt that outcome.
