I'm still hoping someone will tell me this isn't a legit ad by the Obama Campaign. But it is. I get that it's supposed to be funny-ish, but...well, but nothing. It's bizarre someone created it as an official message of the Campaign, and that President Obama approved it.
Interesting thoughts from Jon Lovitz as he was interviewed on my favorite local sports radio show. Listen to the whole thing or you'll miss pieces (13 minutes), but his thoughts on stand-up & politics, Clint's empty chair, and what a real liberal is are worth hearing.
This is a must see. Remember the 1991 song by Sophie B. Hawkins, "Damn, I Wish I Was Your Lover?" Go refresh yourself if you need to. I remember the cool beat, and I remember thinking "Are you allowed to say 'damn' on the radio?" I guess so.
Do you ever wish people could just leave those memories alone? Well, Sophie B. Hawkins had to go and jack it all up by putting together this tragic remake for Hillary's campaign, "Damn, I Wish You Were President." True story. Honestly, if I were Hillary and this is the kind of things people did to support me, I would cry after every primary too. Don't miss the chance to buy your "Damn, I Wish You Were President" T-shirt. Ugh.
I'm already tired of the online discussion about Ted Haggard, and find Stephen Shield's post on the matter very helpful. Mark Driscoll's good advice in his post on the subject are must reading, though nothing profoundly new (a typical sign of most good advice).
