The Presidential election that could end it all or be a new beginning is rapidly approaching, the World Series is in full swing and I'm in the middle of moving . . . it's a great time to be alive and volunteering to help me move! Well, it's a great time to be alive, anyway.
I mentioned that the World Series is in full swing and though I tend to lose interest in baseball after the Cubs are inevitably blown out (Over the years, I've found it's an incredible time saver,) I'm hoping the Phillies sweep Tampa Bay. Not that I have any allegience to Philadelphia . . . I'd just like to see some witty press outlet run the headline It's a Shame About Rays.
Speaking of shame, the McCain-Palin ticket continues their effort using fear and lies to get to the White House, apparently because it worked so well for the current occupant. I have to admit that I briefly considered voting for the McCain-Palin ticket . . . ONLY so I wouldnt have to work hard as a comedian for the next four years. I mean, a McCain-Palin administration would allow for jokes like, Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks, announced this week that hed be changing the teams name to the Dallas Fucktards because after the 2008 Presidential campaign, there are only two people left in America who could ignore the shame and ridicule that comes of calling themselves Mavericks. In a related story, James Garner has asked that people refer to his television work from the late 50s by its preferred title in Japan, Gamblin Cowboy Guy.
Meanwhile, our economy continues to go down like a prom date with low self esteem despite John McCain temporarily suspending his campaign to fix the whole damn thing. Senator Joe Biden is responding to Sarah Palin's appearance on Saturday Night Live with his new slogan, Joe Biden - I don't have to be funny, I'm actually qualified for the job.
As luck would have it, I'm funny and that's all the qualification I need for the job of entertaining y'all. I also know my way around a guitar and will be putting both skills to use as I debut a new song commissioned for the show Letters to My President at 9:30 on Wednesday, October 29th at the M Bar. It'll be a rockin' good time with plenty of fantastic entertainers, so bring your friends and family to laugh your way away from discontent with the current Administration.
See you on the 29th!
