Political Corner

Ok, people, it's time for real talk. I was browsing Bossip, and I ran across this.
I seriously don't know how I feel about this. I know I've only been able to vote for the past 7 years, but I remember details about every election since George Bush Sr. Remember "read my lips"? Anyway, I can't remember any other election when the Presidential candidates were featured on so many magazines, gossip and political in nature alike. Maybe their goal is to get to the younger generation. Maybe they are honestly trying to get people to know the candidates while they wait in line at the grocery store. But something about this just does not sit right with me. I feel the candidates should be in magazines with some weight. Did you know Barack was on SNL the other day? I mean, come on. Maybe my thinking is a little old fashioned, but you know he's got to be losing some credibility with the older voters. And seriously, why in the hell would Palin go to Ok! magazine to clear up the issues everyone is worried about? Am I by myself on this one? What do you guys think?

Well I'll say that a lot has changed since back then. Media is a whole other ball game these days. I also do think that they are trying to reach the young but, I have no problem with it. Why not do an interview with magazines that young people read besides the same old TIME Magazine, and stuff like that.

I agree GM! While I think it is a bit extra for the political candidates to be on some of these weekly rags, we live in the day of gossip and ridiculous media...so it is to be expected. AND since that Palin bitch is so skanky and scandalous of course she is gonna be on all the weeklies. I'm ready for Barack to just be prez so we can call all this extra shit a day.
