Thoughts on everything from Politics to Video Games

Losers to the Left of Me, Losers to the Right

Will you be watching the Tonight Show with Jay Leno tonight? According to the NBC website, Christine O’Donnell will be on the show. Why is that? She lost. What can she possibly say? What about her will be so entertaining? Are we going to make the same mistake with Christine O’Donnell that we have made with Sarah Palin?

If Leno wants to talk to a politician, perhaps, he could talk to the man who defeated her, Chris Coons. If he wants to talk to a right-wing or tea party politician, why doesn’t he talk with Rand Paul – who WON his election?

Why indeed.

It is because we are becoming a nation of losers. We actually celebrate the people who lose more than we celebrate the people who win. Last Sunday night, the Green Bay Packers trounced the Dallas Cowboys. And, what did the announcers discuss? The poor Cowboys. Hardly any praise for Green Bay and these guys kept talking about things that weren’t even game related. Worse announcing ever. During the last half, it was almost like they weren’t even watching the game.

And, that brings me back to Sarah Palin. After the Republicans loss in 2008, Palin was touted like some golden girl. We’re still not rid of her two years later. And, history is repeating itself because here comes O’Donnell onto the Tonight Show.

It’s just sad. It would be different if O’Donnell had won or had been someone with a lot of political experience and public recognition and now he wants to talk to her.

I guess it really shouldn’t matter to me, except I fear what is going to happen to our nation as time goes by and we keep celebrating the losers and dummying down everything.

  1. Living outside America, I’m blown away by the stupidity of your average American. That so many people are completely fooled by Palin and now are going to do the same with Whackjob O’Donnell just blows my mind.

    People bitch and moan about ‘dirty politicians’ and then they put these two prats on a pedestal and adore them. it’s beyond crazy.

    • Prats? Did you mean Brats or does Prats mean something in your country. I’m being curious. I just read a poll that said Americans knew before the election that nothing would get done for the next two years because Republicans won’t compromise. What I can’t understand is why would you vote for someone who cannot compromise?
