All right, children. Attention please. Sit quietly at your computer desks while we listen to the multi-media presentation presented by our corporate donors.
This is Clark Gable. He was once in a movie called It Happened One Night. Unfortunately, what didn't happen was Mr. Gable wearing an undershirt. The movie-going population took notice and sales of undershirts plummeted overnight.
This is John F. Kennedy. He was a very popular president who failed to wear a hat to his inauguration. The inauguration viewing population took notice and sales of hats plummeted overnight. Yes, Jimmy, this is who Mr. Obama patterns himself after. No, he has not dug up the corpse of Marilyn Monroe. Yet.
This is John McCain. Yes, Susie, he is Sarah Palin's running mate. Since the Republican Vice Presidential candidate has come into the glasses wearing population's eye, sales of the Kawasaki 704 glasses has increased overnight.
What is the moral of the story? People are sheep. No, not blue sheep that look like they've been assaulted by a smurf. But consuming sheep who can't set a trend for themselves without looking to others for inspiration. Even if it is godawful clothing.
Which is why we hope whomever does become our next President be it McCain, Obama or Farve doesn't wear pants to the inauguration.
