Parody, Real and Way, WAY Too Real

This is a parody, right? You know, like when that guy faked a Yahoo!News entry about Madonna going into politics? I can't find a citation on Drudge, so I'm sticking to the "this is a parody email" theory. It's a good theory, and gives me comfort in the dark of night.

On the other hand, I only wish this was a parody. Note to Dean--look, just stay away from the whole God thing, okay? Because every. Single. Time. You talk about it, you make an ass of yourself and people everywhere freak the hell out--unless causing folks to freak the hell out is a secret and previously unheard-of election year strategy that guarantees winning.

At this point, I don't care if God appeared to you in a vision and TOLD you to run for president, annointing you in oil and sending you off every morning to an angelic fanfare, holy talking points in hand. Just stop, okay? Please? It's embarrassing. Ooof.

Nope. It appears to be real.

It doesn't matter to me who the heck 'Madonna' supports. She's a dumb-ass. Generally I'm sick and tired of celebrities touting their opinion like it comes from some sort of educated stand-point. They should stick to their job, entertainment, Period.

Oh...and I didn't mean to come across as so opinionated in my first post on your site...great site by the way!

Ginny -

Don't worry about being opinionated here--I'm chock full of 'em, so I figure everyone else is, too.

I'm really trying to like Dean, but it keeps getting harder. Take a look at the gem in today's Globe.

I would like the guy a whole lot more if he would just say, "Look, I'm a secular guy. I'm devoted to my marriage and my family, and I have strong ethical standards. Religious ideas for some reason have never really moved me, but I respect the beliefs of my fellow citizens. I want to be your President and here's why: . . ."

Take the bull by the horns, the way JFK did with his Roman Catholicism. People respect honesty.

Dean is clueless about real Christian concepts. "Enough of this love thy neighbor stuff!" Well, he didn't actually say that, but close enough.

Geez.
