Obama = Good, America = Stupid

April 29, 2009

obama8Tonight, as I was driving in the car, a news man on NPR (90.9 in Boston) said that today, ahead of Obama’s 100 Day speech, was like Christmas for the White House.  Chrysler was about to be bailed out by Fiat.  The Stock Market was up 2%.  And Obama’s budget passed.  Hell, even Arlen Spector (who I happen to think is a total ass clown) decided that now was a good time to be a Democrat.  He’s like a stock analyst that changes his rating from Sell to Buy only after the stock has gone up 1 billion percent.  (Please hold.  I forgot where I was going with this rant.  Be back in 5.)  Oh Oh Oh.  Right.  OK, so tonight everything seems to be going well for Obama.  His Q & A with the press was smashing.  Good, thoughtful answers.  You look at Obama and you think “wow, America seems to be on the right track.”  Yup, then you go and watch Idol.  It’s like an emotional rollercoaster.  You feel great after Obama, then you watch Idol and it drags you all the way down.  Hell, it’s like your car just about came off the track.  What the hell is wrong with America?  Really?  How can people think he should be in the bottom 3, let alone the bottom 2?  It’s just insane.  (Side note: I love when Paula says something is Crazy.  Yeah, that helps.)  Anyway, Adam in the Bototm 3 totally destroys and good-will that Obama spent the evening buidling up.  Ugh.  Makes me crazy.

moonOh, and now Jamie Foxx is a rapper?  Really?  I thought he was a comedian/actor?  I didn’t realize 2009 was “pick a career out of your ass year.”  In that case, I’m going to be an astronaut.  Yup, I now work for NASA.  Sorry GWK, but I figured it would be an easy jump from Investment Managment to Astrophysics.  It worked for Jamie, it’ll work for me.  See that moon up there?  Yeah, I discovered that shit.

Adios Matt (finally).  Here are your damn results.  Now I’m all worked up.

Official Launch of 2009 Idol Pool!

February 17, 2009

Dear Friends, Enemies, Family, Co-workers, Mistresses, etc,

Today, with the first showing of the final 36, I’m launching the 2009 American Idol Pool.

You’ll notice a lot has changed since May when America crowned David Archuletta Cook as the 2008 American Idol. George W Bush Barack Obama is  President. I’m still not married I got married (please send gifts if you haven’t already – http://www.elyssaandlee.com). The stock market is roaring sucks.  And Finally, The Idol Pool has a new website (www.leesidolpool.com)…I think it’s awesome.

We’re getting all high-tech this year.  You’ll be able to sign-up for the pool online.  You’ll be able to cast your picks online.  And, continuing what was moderately successful last year, I’ll be posting to this blog on a weekly basis, if not more.  Who knows, we may even have some guest bloggers participate.

So, without further delay, please click here or at the top right of the page where it says “Sign up for the 2009 Idol Pool Here!!” and get your ass involved.  Tell everyone and anyone you know who might want to be in the pool.  Just send them to the blog to signup.
