priority check


so have you seen all the stories in the news about barack obama being a smoker? it seems as though every news outlet in the u.s. (including, but not limited to, the chicago tribune, abc news, the washington post, fox news [of course] and cnFREAKINGn) has jumped on this "story" and driven it into the damn ground, securing a promise from the future PRESIDENT OF OUR COUNTRY that he won't smoke after he takes office. um, am i alone here? or is this the most NON-RELEVANT ISSUE EVER? who gives a shit if the man likes his marlboros?!? yes, smoking is bad. yes, big tobacco is bad. yes, we all fight our little wars with cigarettes from time to time. but he's about to be the LEADER OF THE FREE WORLD for chrissakes. SURELY there are more pressing things one would like to discuss with the man who's about to take over our economical, educational, and social policies... SURELY. so... is it just me? or is this kiiiind of a bunch of bullshit?

Definitely are more pressing issues than if the man smokes.

hmm, sounds like someone who's addicted to nicotine wrote this blog and feels like bashing on Obama for smoking is a personal attack?

Perhaps it is more an issue of intelligence than anything...our President is dumb enough to smoke? What a shame.

There are certainly bigger issues to be talked about, but people read this shit and then blog about it. It's no wonder that there's a ton of stories about it. It's like all celebrity news...who gives a shit?! Well, a lot of people do.

i usually let anonymous comments go, but really, if the person who wrote this knows me at all (and i suspect she really, REALLY does), then she knows that i am more objective than to be personally affected by any ridiculous remarks about smoking. after all, i am one person, and not a demographic.
secondly, i don't have an evening news program or a staff of writers or even an audience of any measurable size at all, so i'll use my silly little blog to discuss what i like, when i like, how i like. the end.

You could certainly come back with a more intelligent statement about this topic other than "I'll discuss what I like, when I like, how I like." That's how we end up with terrible columnists in shitty magazines that are writing a lot of words but never really saying anything worthwhile or that someone has not already said.

Priority check...99.9% of blogs are bullshit, do something valuable with your time if you're such an authority on everything.

Unknown said...

"Go fuck yourself" No thank you. I don't do those types of things, but I'm sure that you do.

Am I wrong, again? Is there anything here that you would like to correct now?
