What if Obama took another cue from Hugo Chavez and started hosting his own TV show?
His blog posts are often bullet lists of quick-hit thoughts such as this one:
“What I hate most about Obama’s kill list is that he’s hogging all the choosing who dies. I want to pick some!”It gave me a great idea. Obama could have his own weekly TV Show, like Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez, call it “Ask Dear Leader” or something like that. People could call in and ask him about drug use and how to start your own choom gang, identity politics and basketball tournament brackets.
He could lecture us on improving communities based upon his "successful" efforts in crime-riddled Chicago, or regale us with tense stories of eating popcorn in the situation room while real men grimly and professionally carried out his orders.
Imagine his O-ness, teleprompters at the ready, taking phone calls live on the air from ordinary proles:
Caller: Hey Uncle Obama, gimme summa those Obamabucks you got in your stash!
Prez: Do you own a green company?
Caller: Commandante, is driving a bus a green job?
Prez: "Why sure it is!" In fact, every one of those passengers on your green bus is counted as a job saved!
"Pick the Target"
Perhaps a few times a year the White House could make it extra-special by letting the lucky participant pull the trigger. Maybe once a year they could pick one of the previous winners to actually fly in the Batcopter with the President and VP Biden as they swoop down into a terrorist compound a kill a perp with their bare hands!
What do you think? I’d like to hear your ideas for making Comandante O’s television program an entertainment success!
