I am not psychic, nor do I play a guy who is pretending to be a psychic so he can work for the Santa Barbara police for laughs nor a guy who is through pretending to be a psychic so that he can work for the California Bureau of Investigation for serious, but I swear this morning as I was watching CNN, I heard the Church Secretary in my head and he said, “Oh, sure, we have to hear from third-party candidates Barr and Nader about the economy but nothing from McKinney?”
I mean, neither Barr nor Nader is any more likely to ever be president than McKinney, so I’m confused about why they get airtime and she doesn’t. Does Nader even have a party backing him?
I mean, I like the idea of hearing from third-party candidates every once in a while on these kinds of important issues because they have nothing to lose. They can say exactly what they’re thinking, which is useful to me as I try to understand what’s going on.
I’m just curious about how it gets decided who is important enough to take semi-seriously and who is not.
Also: Speaking of CNN this morning, have any of you seen that Korean Air ad? There’s a lingering shot of a blue high heel shoe on a woman’s foot and then a man has a bottle of champaign right by his crotch which he then lets off with a “pop.” I was dying! I mean, usually the vagina penis symbolism is not so blatant. (Or much more.)
