Carly Fiorino and My Precious Time

So here we are a precious 14 months until the next presidential election.  It is great that there is nothing pressing going on while all these senators and governors run for president.  There are not thousands of Christians being murdered in the middle east.  There are not hundreds of black youth being murdered in the cities every day.   The Keystone pipeline is finished.  Obamacare has been discontinued and ISIS is no more. The border has been secured. Iran now will never have nuclear warheads and Clinton has been cleared of all suspicion.  

So, of course then it ’s a journalists priority to cover the election 24 – 7.  

Ehhhhhh, maybe not so much./s

It can be said after watching the first presidential debate for 2016 on Fox News Channel, that the candidates behave like contestants on American Idol, all trying to elbow their way to stardom.  The thing is, after a couple seasons we learned to start watching the show 3 weeks before the final vote.  In doing this we avoided wasting hours of precious time and brain cells watching the less talented and the undeserving.    

This plan translates directly to Fox’s election coverage.  If the talking heads at Fox are not taking every opportunity for public naval gazing, they are covering unlikely presidential nomination winners like Jim Gilmore.  Oh, and lets find out more about the old feud between Rosie O’Donnell and Trump.  Yeah thats the ticket. /s

Thank the Lord for Carly Fiorina.  She so intellectually outclasses most of the candidates from both major parties that she may have the effect of eliminating the lesser half at faster speed than would otherwise be.  Trump is no longer entertaining and not used to criticism so he should be folding soon.  Carly Fiorino is so quick and articulate, she makes Trump look like Triumph the Insult Comic rather than a candidate for high office.  Lets pray a few hopeless candidates will see the impossibility of their success in this and  leave the race sooner rather than later.  Are you listening Jeb Bush? Trump? Santorum?

In the meantime, Fox needs to break away from its make-up mirrors and do its job, like covering the news rather than trying to make the news or be part of the story like their liberal colleagues do.  

I’ll be passing on Fox for a while unless I hear it has suddenly remembered how to put its pants on front ways or management finally goes for dignity and professionalism rather than mud wrestling contests or indecent public exposure.   

Your Turn; An Open Letter to Jeb Bush

Governor Bush,

There is something more than troubling about you, Jeb Bush running for President on the heals of your brother, your father and lets not forget great grandfather (about 7 times I guess) Franklin Pierce on your mother’s side.  We fought a war so we could avoid the isolation of power in ad infinitum samples of the same gene pool.  Its just not healthy.    

No, its not like you are the spawn of Elvis, or an Osmond,or a Marx brother but you not exactly a member of New Kids on The Block, either. They can sing. They would at least
bring new blood to the office.

You’re not even a Wahlberg, or a Jonas brother for that matter. In other words, Jeb, you and George W should have arm wrestled for the opportunity back in the day and at least one would have walked away with dignity.  There is something unsettling, even desperate about your choice to run for President.  We know Mom liked you best, but since you are running now, will Marvin run in 2024?  Or why not for that matter let Dorothy Bush Koch run instead?  The left would love that one.  

She and Hillary could mud wrestle instead of debate.  Talk about must-see TV!  

Rumer already has it that when you speak, Hillary’s lips move.  

Your running is almost an insult to the rest of America.  After all, one of us should be able to grow up and be President, too.
