Real American Idols...
Speaking of American Idol, as you know, the wheels of justice move slowly, but in my office Tuesday nights at 8PM they come to a grinding halt.
I cannot believe that Chris Daughtry was in the bottom two last week, it must be a conspiracy! I might ask all of my staff in both Chicago and D.C. to work late and call in votes from 9-11PM for Chris. I calculate that roughly 200 people + redial function (10 calls per minute) x 120 minutes = 240,000 votes. That could make a big difference.
Speaking of making a difference and real American idols, I attended a wonderful luncheon today. It was for a VERY worthy cause and the keynote speaker made an impression on me.
Afterwards I told her, "Listen up, listen up. Yo. When you started out it was just aw-ight for me. A little pitchy in a few places, went sharp in the middle, but Dude, by the end you worked it out, baby. Dawgpound we got a hot one today!"
Hillary made the speech her own and received a standing ovation because when it comes to supporting military families - there should be no politics!
