it was announced this week that Paris Hilton will star in yet another ‘reality’ show later this year on VH1. the show’s working title is Paris Hilton’s My New BFF. a website has been set up to screen videos of the hopeful candidates who will end up living together in a big house with gobs of drama, fighting against each other tooth and nail and spikeheel, to compete for the envious title of being Paris’ number one galpal. it’s stories like these that make me certain we are much closer to the apocalypse than i realized.
and speaking of the apocalypse, George Bush, the current Leader of the Free World, made a comment so stunning the other day in its ignorance that even i was taken aback. apparently he was participating in a videoconference with military and civilian personnel in Afghanistan, who were talking about the challenges they’ve been facing in their quest to build a democracy there.
“I must say, I’m a little envious,” quoth Bush. “If I were slightly younger and not employed here, I think it would be a fantastic experience to be on the front lines of helping this young democracy succeed . . . It must be exciting for you … in some ways romantic, in some ways, you know, confronting danger. You’re really making history, and thanks.”
exciting………..romantic………excuse me? i think he’s watched a few too many war movies. but my favorite part is that last line. “You’re really making history, and thanks.”
. . . and thanks???? you can’t make this stuff up!
forget Paris. the next ‘reality’ show should be Bush achieving his exciting romantic dream of serving in the Armed Forces overseas. straight to Baghad or Fallujah. and i don’t mean the Green Zone.
