So Donald Trump, business man, reality television star and former Republican primary candidate is hosting a political debate. I’ve been watching this story with interest and mild amusement. I wonder, “what qualifies him to host a debate?” Doesn’t the fact that he himself was a potential candidate for president seem like a conflict of interest? Is it that he’s such a big star? Um, rating on The Apprentice have been trending down for years now.
I honestly don’t know who is going to be at this debate. Romney, Paul and Huntsman have all declined. Gingrich on the other hand went to Trump Tower and held a press conference with “The Donald” to announce his participation. How far the mighty have fallen. I’m imagining Newt, Michelle Bachmann, Rick Perry and Trump all in a room competing for the title of biggest media whore. A circus indeed.
This is a screen shot that actually came to the Frog this week. You recommended a bloody Shakespearean tragedy based on our having previously rented Monty Python, Battlestar Galactic and Wallace & Gromit? Um, what?! And I thought Amazon’s recommendation software sucked!
In the weirdest news headline of the week country singer Shania Twain announced her engagement to Frederic Thiebaud. Not that unusual, right? Until you realize that Mr. Thiebaud is the ex-husband of the woman that Shania’s ex-husband, Mutt Lange, left her for. Did you follow that? Shania’s creepy ex cheated on her with Thiebaud’s ex wife Marie-Anne. Seems Shania and Thiebaud fell into each others arms as their marriages dissolved, and now are blissfully engaged to tie the knot themselves. I swear if I hadn’t read this on HuffPo I’d think it was a pitch for a new ABC series. Surreal! I wonder if the exes are invited to the wedding.
