First, Joe Wilson heckled the President as he spoke to a joint session of Congress. Now Joe didn't say anything that most Americans wouldn't like to yell at our President or any member of Congress for that matter... but he's one of them! (gasp) The proverbial 'pot calling the kettle black' scenario...if ever there was one. It was rude, he shouldn't have done it...doesn't matter that he's right or a Republican.
Then comes Kanye West...snatching the spotlight from poor teenager Taylor Swift. What makes him think we care who he thinks should have won anyway? His rudeness cost him 3 spots on the teenager's iPod...too bad I've already paid for the stinking songs.
How about Serena Williams? While getting her rather scary...excuse me, that's rude...she's getting beat at the U.S. Open and unloads on a line judge over a toe fault call that results in a point penalty...which is match point! Bet her dad had something to say about her behavior in the national spotlight...in the form of a few shots at the line judge himself. No way it was Serena's fault...
In the famous words of Rodney King (LAPD beating victim in case you're still mentally blocking the early 90's from memory...like me):
'People, I just want to say, you know, can we all get along? Can we get along? Can we stop making it, making it horrible for the older people and the kids?...It’s just not right. It’s not right. It’s not, it’s not going to change anything. We’ll, we’ll get our justice....Please, we can get along here. We all can get along. I mean, we’re all stuck here for a while. Let’s try to work it out. Let’s try to beat it. Let’s try to beat it. Let’s try to work it out.'
Well said Mr. King...well said.
Now here's the kind of thing I want to see winding down with a little TV each night...
God bless her little heart...glad she wasn't at the Yankees/Blue Jays game that night (both benches cleared in a melee).
