Save the Whales

If I have to watch that bratty snot-nosed Hayden Panitierre sobbing about the whales one more time, I'm going to shoot myself in the eye with a bb gun. She was on E! tonight talking about how she's going to decide which candidate to vote for. I don't watch Heroes and after viewing Ms. Hayden on TV tonight, I never will. According to Hayden, she has "talked to Barack extensively about the whales and since he grew up in Hawaii, he has some pretty good ideas." Yes, she called the Presidental hopeful by his first name and apparently the most pressing issue in this little girl's world is the whales. Now, I love whales just as much as the next person (I'm actually hoping to see a few of these magnificent creatures while we're in Cabo), however, I expect a little bit more from my President. If I had 5 minutes alone w/ Hilary, Rudy, Barack et al, the last thing on my mind would be the whales. The war in Iraq? Sure. National healthcare? You bet. Social Security. Definately. Tax reform. Of course. Illegal immigrants? Naturally! Whales? WTF???? This is probably the first time Ms. Hayden P is voting in a major election and she decides to talk about whales? God help us if this if the future of our country. Rather than make change at home, these celebrities choose causes which will bring them international publicity. I'm sure George Clooney really does care about the people of Darfur. But what about the people at home? What about the people in Podunck, KY that bought tickets to Ocean's 11, 12 AND 13? They're the ones enabling you to gain global recognition for your humanitarian efforts. Same goes for you Ms. Oprah Winfrey. US citizens are the ones who buy your crappy magazine and watch you pontificate daily on your show. And how did you repay them? By building a school in Africa. Nice. What about the children living below the poverty line right here in America? The ones who only survive by eating the free meals at school? The ones who live in apartments or mobile homes w/ out heat? The ones w/ alcoholic or drug addicted parents? The ones who are on welfare and will be for the rest of their lives?

I will get off my soapbox now. Thank you for letting me vent.
