I must admit I’ve been a bit distant from the hot news items of the week. With the exception of my crashing last night, I’ve been operating on about 3 hours of sleep a night trying to fit “it” all in. Sometimes life is like that.
1. This Election Year – I was beyond happy for Tuesday to come just so we could be done with all of the media pundit’s crapola babble on how Americans are feeling. And the lot of political ads this year were disgusting. Does anyone talk about what they will actually do anymore? Spending thousands (or millions) on ads that only show your opponent with negative (even if made up) story bites to me means you don’t have jack to say about yourself.
2. Miley Cyrus – Based on her caterwauling, she’s a hot mess in general. But this week, we hear of underage drinking in Spain. I’m not a teetotaler, but am over prissy little Disney (or Nickelodeon or any other kid-focused vehicle) stars needing to start acting “bad” in an attempt to remake themselves into adult stars. The risqué photos (including some with her dad), the older boyfriends, trying to get into nightclubs and now drinking.
