Watching the Celebs


America loves its celebrities.  Well, most of America except for the far right-wing nuts who see celebrities as commie, pinko, liberal bedwetters.  Funny thing about these Talk Radio gasbags are celebrities too.

In fact today just about everybody is a celebrity or a celebrity in waiting.  All you have to do is make it into the news as a politician or criminal, recently we have been getting a twofer there, and you are a celebrity.

What has really driven this to the point of exhaustion are the endless and mindless reality shows that TV is pumping out faster than Octomom can kids.  Come to think of it, she has just gotten her own reality show.  I have no idea what her show will consist of other than watching her change diapers or throw darts at a board to see who is next up for breast feeding.

I don't know what they are going call her show but it could rival "I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here".  How about, "I'm a fetus...Get Me Out of Here"?  It will be a contest to see just which of these shows gets the title of lowest of the low.

So far "I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here" has got to be the worst.  What other show would classify Illinois impeached Governor Blago's wife a celebrity?  Why is Pattie the potty-mouth, as she is known to the FBI who tapped the phones in the State House, considered a celebrity in the first place.  Originally the pimps (producers) for this travesty had asked Blago himself to be on the show but the judge nixed him leaving the state while under indictment. Undeterred they asked his wife if she wanted to be dropped in the middle of the jungle in Costa Rica and eat bugs.  I guess she figured anything would be better than being photographed wandering the streets of Chicago with her Chewbaca haired hubby.  If you think this show is filled with has-been's or never-was's just think Sanjaya.....yea he's in the jungle with Mrs. Blago.  Where is the humane society when you need them?
