The Debates — AKA Dancing with the Stars

Filed under: Uncategorized — love2wryte @ 5:55 pm

Now I don’t watch DWTS, but I have watched the debates, and I’d hazard a guess that they’re not too different. The “stars” (a term I’m going to use loosely for both programs) do the two-step and the jive, and basically hope that flash (or flesh, depending on which you’re watching) will fool the American public into thinking they know what they’re doing.

Afterward the judges (or pundits) line up and score the performances because the viewing audience is obviously too thick to figure out what they liked or didn’t.

In November everyone will be voting for the star who’s better at doing the paso doble or maybe just passing the buck. I think the oddsmakers are putting their money on “that one”.

  2. Amen to everything. Nice analogy – all they needed were some flashy outfits and shiny shoes. I really tend to feel like a mark at a carnival game when I listen to politicians. Having that moment where you think ‘ooh, that sounds like a good idea’ is no more than a prelude to losing your shirt.
