Governor Sarah Palin Republican VP nominee

WOW. what a crazy week! If you teach Public Speaking,you couldn't of asked for a better Democratic National Convention to have followed...not to mention the historical significance of it all.

...and as a Marketing couldn't of asked for a more exciting day .
Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska is a marketer's dream on about 8 different levels .

and...if you're a political junkie-like me- you know that this is the most HISTORIC Presidential race...and as of today is just took on SUPER BOWL-WORLD SERIES-
maybe even..dare I say it........ MUSIKFEST(lol) proportions !

and if you're and AMERICAN CITIZEN...ya think you'll get involved NOW ?

The most watched Vice Presidential debate in history will be Joe Biden vs. Sarah Palin

About 10 years ago my wife and I saw Something Funny Happened on the Way to the Forum on Broadway...starring Nathan Lane.. it was a Friday and at one point in the show, Nathan lane blew a line- came out of character and spoke to the audience as himself...." hey..whatta want?" he said
"'s been a long week !" then BAM ! Right back into character. was brilliant and hysterical....

So Imagine my surprise and excitement when I saw that OBAMA has chosen to use the exact same Broadway set/stage for his acceptance speech tomorrow night at the Democratic National Convention....right down to the forum columns. Something funny happened on the way to the convention. HEY WHATTA WANT? IT'S BEEN A LONG WEEK!

look for Nathan Lane.........

46 is the new 30......that's my story and I'm stickin' to it !

Harrison Ford- Indiana Jones'n, Bruce Willis-Die Hardest..and Sly - Rambo 11...................
all get the AARP discounts at Friendlys but they're some of the doods that have redefined MAN-YEARS...

Just like Madonna and the Desperate Housewifes redefined WOMAN-YEARS........

Note to Madonna--FOR THE LOVE OF BEAT ! Put down the barbells ! You're getting tooo sinewy!

Remember Linda Hamilton in the first Terminator?...she was on the line...but she had to kill Arnold, all Madonna has to do is dance...and whatever....

by the way-Stallone looks great for 79

I've lived in PA now for 17 years and I still don't get why they put down OIL and STONES over perfectly good pavement .....what does this do exactly ?

are the body shops in on this ?


I was waiting...waiting for at least 3 episodes of The Cleaner on A & E...before I started to rave about it. I was hooked on the first episode...but then I have an addictive personality...I'm not making light of it's subject matter when I say that- far from it ! The Cleaner, like Saving Grace on TNT are two of the best shows on TV but they are an aquired taste. They are about broken people trying to make things right...trying to fix themselves. Not just broke($) people or people breaking up,confused people or out of work people- I'm talkin' about the kind of broken people where nothing ever heals correctly , people destroying themselves from the inside out and taking everyone within arms reach down with them...but the shows are not constrained by the political correctness of network censors so they're raw and frightenly authentic...and among my favorite parts ; Each of the shows main characters has a real and at times dysfunctional relationship with GOD. To have God in the mix-and he somehow always is - with this kind of subject matter is what makes both Holly Hunter of Grace and Bejamin Bratt of The Cleaner not just a couple of cable cliches using profanity and finding themselves in horrific situations. I'm worried about Holly Hunter though...she needs to gain some weight...maybe she's working to hard...but that woman can act like nobody's business. Considering the backdrop subject matter of both shows...drug addiction & crime...they usually end with hope....after taking the viewer to some very dark places. The big play week after week is the family dynamic and how it is affected by these bad things and the struggle. It's real and that's the ticket.

Parents should watch it.(rated MA)
