Has Al Frankin Quit His Day Job?

Wednesday Supreme Court Nominee Sonia Sotomayor faced tough questions from Senate Republicans, and then there was Al Franklin. Unfortunately the biggest joke in this former comedian's career may be on us. While Senate Republicans were trying to learn what Sotomayor's political philosophies and leanings are on key issues that affect our personal liberties, Al was more interesting in if Sotomayor could remember the case that Perry Mason lost. That is correct, he did not care how she would vote on something as trivial as, let's say, THE CONSTITUTION. He was more concerned with a fictious case that appeared on T.V. decades ago. Granted we live in a society where the "dumb masses" (don't try saying that five times fast) are more concerned with Michael Jackson than watching our country being stolen from us daily in Washington, but this was ridiculous.

This is what I have come to expect from celebrities who decide to enter politics. Here is a note for people who would vote for Alec Baldwin as he looks at a journey into political life. People in Hollywood live in a fantasy world. Their lives revolve around pretending to be something or someone they are not. That is why I laugh when Democrats haul celebrities in to testify at this hearing or that, not because they are an expert on an issue, or even know anything about it, because they played a character that was familiar with the issue. Ordinary America lives in the real world. We understand the issues in Washington from the point of view of people that the things transpiring in Washington really affect, not from some ridiculous philosophy inspired from not being in touch with reality. America, stop putting our future in the hands of people who have no basis in common sense reality. Tell the want to be celebrity politicians, if they can not show some good old fashioned common sense, not to quit their day job.
