"... with Barack Obama we American's have a rare opportunity to elect an extraordinary President... really think through this important election ... vote with your heart, your mind, and with courage and vision. That's all I ask."

Ron Howard's one of my favorites. But,that's a little creepy. I kept seeing opie - the same expressions, the same inflections...Wow. I'm kind of freaked out here.

Sue.. Hurry.. Go back and watch Martha's Peep Show!! That should take your mind off of Opie! =)~

Oh, goodie!! Another clueless hollywooder "weighs in". Sure, Ron Howard is a genius imho -- at what he does. How much chin music do you think I'd get if I operate out of my field? I can chase electrons around in a circle, but I have no clue how to interview somebody to take, say, a banker's job. ISSUES, people, NOT face time! Opie's cuteness doesn't make BO a shoe-in.

Solie, what makes him any less qualified to have an opinion than you??????

Based on your analogy, unless we've lived, eaten and breathed politics our entire lives, and studied Political Science in college, that NONE of us are educated enough to make a choice as to vote for as our President!

Well, Angie, using *your* analogy, I am prepared to go into the attic and look for my Tinker Toys. Or Legos, if I can find them!

It's not so much the "opinion", Angie, but as we all know, the Hollywood set goes WAY beyond opining! It would be a fresh sea-spray if one of the beautiful people came out of the woodwork and, say, had something wonderful to say about a conservative. It'd be major bonus if the same person had nothing negative to say about the *other* guy. In truth, it won't happen as often as the reverse. If it does on occasion, the media will be there, guns a'blazing!

Angie, you should feel a wonderful sense of power, being aligned with so powerful a force as the public-opinion shaping media. So long as you want what they want, you'll always be in the majority. It looks much easier to avoid falling on ones sword than it does falling on a pen. We're bleeding profusely from pen wounds. I can tell the difference, for the liberals have bound our swords away. The pen is all that is left.

Power?
The need to be in the "majority"?

I guess you don't know me very well do you?

Angie what a great message from the boys of Mayberry! Solie doesn't much like Californians. He's always trashing the "Berkley set" and the "Hollywood set." I think he secretly wants to be a Berkley hippie and a Hollywood movie star. LOL

Angie ^i^ said...

Aw, he can be anything he aspires to be.. you betcha!

OweMe1Cannoli said...

Angie: Never claimed to know you very well. I go by what I see. Most who think, do. I never said you *needed* to be in the majority, either. The way events are unfolding however, it looks like you are going to be. I hope you're happy with the chain of events BO has initiated. I'd rather someone (you, perhaps?) benefits than for no one to win. What remains to be seen now is the legal quagmire that occurs in the close states. Who is actually gonna get behind this guy? How good is his cartoon likeness gonna look in "Time" compared to pretty much any Republican incumbent? How long will it take before they start blaming Bush (again)? They even have the built-in Biden disclaimer if anything untoward should happen. Media covers all it's bases. Had I covered my ass this well when I was in the military, Powell might well have been working for me.

Oh, Jim -- fun facts to know and share -- and this SHOCKED me!!! Greg Gutfield (F.U.C.) (Foxnews Ultra Conservative) is a Berkeley grad! Maybe I should tone it down a notch? Naaaa! I'd be more damaged if it was Mike Baker or Sean Hannidy.

I don't mean to be a blog-hog, but Jim, I can't WAIT until "Idol" shows up in Indy again!!! When I win, I'm gonna tell Simon to go soak!

Angie ^i^ said...

Blog-hog all you want Solie, we're cool! =)

OweMe1Cannoli said...

Okay one more idea. When BO wins, we need to pool our talents and come up with a great NEW TV show. We'll call it "American Idle". All we need is an odd number of judges so there's always decisive outcome. We could slap each other with our score cards when we disagree ... stuff like that. Whoever gets voted off gets a token appointment. Only winners could be Justices or Cabinet members. We could even have a real comedian as host. Maybe Rush Limbaugh? Alan Colmes? Jim or Angie could sell it to the networks. I have no sales experience. Media wouldn't touch me with a 10 foot pole.

I didn't need to see Ron without his shirt, not sure why but it seemed so wrong. lol

Angie ^i^ said...

LOL Martha ~ when I saw him undressing I was praying that he stopped at the shirt!! I don't know if I could have handled seeing him in tighty whities!!!

That dude Paul said...

I dont know where to begin....

Perhaps, EWWWW! I feel as though I just watched an episode of The Twighlight Zone... Like folks have already mentioned, I could have done without seeing Opie getting his nose hairs trimmed. Of the 3, Henry looks like he's aged the best.

However, I have to agree with Solie that these guys may be experts in their craft, but they are no more of an expert than you or I in the matter of politics. It kind of offends me that they would use iconic characters from my youth to try to tug at my heart strings.

By the way Angie, I thank you very much for visiting me at the Psycho Circus.
