Celebrities, Please Shut Up
Can celebrities stop telling us how to vote now? Please. One of the more obnoxious sidelights of the 2004 Presidential Election was that every person who’s ever been deemed famous took it as their civic duty to inform the rest of us who we should vote for. Apparently, someone told them that was a really important election – as opposed to all those unimportant president picks apparently.
It’s 2004. Does anyone think the celebrity endorsement does anything but annoy anymore?
I don’t care if it’s Curt Schilling shilling for Bush on Good Morning America or Bruce Springsteen sharing a stage with John Kerry, it’s all stupid is as stupid does. If you’re going to change your vote because your favorite celebrity said so, you don’t deserve to vote. If you’re going to rely on trotting out a celebrity, you don’t deserve to hold office.
Face reality. Americans aren’t that wowed by faces on TV anymore. With all these reality shows, almost every American’s been on TV.
Like a plant worker in Ohio’s going, I was all for Bush, but that Springsteen really rocked. The heck with it, I’m switching to Kerry. Please. Rock the vote to sleep.
Schilling may be the most popular athlete in the history of Boston at the moment. And its citizens still yawned at his Bush plea and handed the state to Kerry in landslide. Which probably means Schilling is mad at God at the moment. (He credited God with allowing him to pitch on his busted up ankle, because after 86 years God decided he finally needed to get on this Red Sox mess. The Middle East thing could wait again.)
Of course, that’s another story.
