Joe Sudbay (DC), AmericaBlog.com: Admittedly, I'm not too clued in to popular culture. However, I do love that Kathy Griffin and her reality show, "My Life on the D-List."
Kathy Griffin wants to win a grammy. She did a CD of one of her shows and has been pimping it for months. She wants to win at any cost. And, as a self-professed D-lister, she's willing to make herself look desperate in the process. She is, after all, also a comedian and there's no stunt that's too cheap for her. On last week's episode, Griffin hit a new low. In an effort to earn free publicity, she trolled around Hollywood with Britney Spear's boyfriend, Adnan Ghalib. It was a an over-the-top cry for attention. And, it was pretty funny.
John McCain wants to win the presidency. He has been running for practically ten years. He wants to win at any cost. And, the one-time self-proclaimed "maverick" is willing to make himself look desperate in the process. He is, after all, just a right wing Republican and theres' no stunt that's too cheap for him. On last week's insane episode of the McCain campaign, McCain hit a new low. In an effort to earn free publicity, he trolled around a television ad featuring Adnan Ghalib's girlfriend, Britney Spears. It was an over-the-top cry for attention. And, it was very pathetic.
It worked for Kathy Griffin. It made John McCain look ridiculous.
John McCain's campaign really shouldn't be mirroring Kathy Griffin's show. But, that's what it has come to.
