Juan Williams is a former NPR correspondent, former because he was fired over a comment he made as a guest on O’Reilly saying he gets nervous flying when people on the plane wear Muslim garb. I have to admit, for better or worst, the thought always crosses my mind when I see something similar. But I guess we should feel too sorry for the guy getting canned, he was just picked up by Fox News for a three year $2 million contract.
Speaking of Dubya, he made a new YouTube video promoting his upcoming book. Normally I wouldn’t have a problem with that, but he stated a while back that he wasn’t going to do any promotion for the book until after the midterm elections. But maybe this video is harmless enough.
Now a critique about the video (it’s my only chance to play Don Draper) . . . he speaks against a black background, which I think is a mistake. He should of spoke behind a white background. If you are going to promote yourself and and a sense defend your presidency, then make sure you do so in the most positive of ways, even if it’s subtle things.
It’s nice having a shorter commute to work and not having to fill up the car as much, not that it was so bad to begin with.
Don’t expect any regular postings for next week while I’m traveling. I might post some stuff on Monday, but who knows.
