The Maps for USAicans Initiative

Look, I appreciate the many youtube mashups of Palin and Miss Teen SC as much as the next guy, and not just because it allows me to think of Palin and beauty pageants without feeling like a total sexist. I think that Palin and that poor girl aren’t stupid, and I’m sure they can both find the US on a map. I also believe that people they look up to thrust them both into a much bigger spotlight then they imagined and expected them to perform flawlessly. (can’t you picture the screaming stage mothers/campaign workers in the audience with handmade signs?)

I’m not voting for McCain/Palin, but I have complete faith in her abilities to perform half of her constitutional duties (I’m completely sure that she is capable of breaking a tie). And in yet another completely non-sexist thought, might I dust off the old chestnut of “serving at the pleasure of the president?” (it’s much more palatable to imagine her saying that than Gonzalez……::shudder::)

But now for the above video: in my mind this would be way funnier as a mashup because as much as I can imagine Palin calling for more maps in South Africa, or whatever, I cannot picture her laughing at herself like this. (or appearing in a Weezer video) So say what you will, but in the end it’s all fun and games and it really is unfair to compare a teenage beauty queen to our next VP. Because seriously, Biden in a tiara? No thanks.

Oh, and not to be outdone, Biden has made some gaffs too. But because he’s a man (I guess) they’re more apt to give him a little nickname.

p.s. Caitlin attends APPALACHIAN STATE UNIVERSITY, which I’ve enjoyed for years. My head just exploded with this unprecedented coincidence.

Stop trying to make Josh Groban happen

Hello world! There’s no better way to start this little b-log than with this gem. Basically I found myself posting lots of facebook notes to share things with the people I love that are now so far away, but I got sick of the whole process. Today, I thought of this totally f-tch domain name, it was totally not taken, and now here we are!

Now, need I remind you that:
a) I love TV
b) I love music
c) I have loved TV music
d) I went to high school with this man (we weren’t chums or anything, but he was there)

That all being said, this video is a complete and utter travesty.

Don’t watch the whole thing, it’s too painful. Let me just walk you through my favorite part:
2:05 – transition from South Park theme to Jeffersons theme. Enter gospel backup singers.
2:23 – Baywatch theme. Gospel singers remain, presumably because Hasselhoff makes them feel safe.
2:35 – Brady Bunch theme. Gospel singers stop swaying, I guess because the Bradys sucked their jive away.
2:42 – Cops theme. Gospel singers exeunt hastily. Wait, what?

I don’t need to spell this out people, that’s beyond awkward and deep into WRONG territory. It’s things like this that make me want to never leave the house or turn on the internet again. Coincidentally, it’s things like this that are also making fetch happen, just a little bit at a time, and that’s why this blog is here. To honor those things that every day work tirelessly to make fetch happen for all of us.
