I guess he's been around Hollywood so long he had never actually met a Republican and wasn't sure they actually existed.
A few people clapped. However, not many.
I was a little stunned trying to figure out what this guy was up to.
He went on to explain that Idol had asked the three candidates (Hillary, Barrack, and John McCain) to send in messages to be aired during Wednesday nights show.
We would be seeing those messages. He wanted to make sure that no Republicans would be offended as John McCain's tape was not very good and they had asked him to send in another. So, when we saw the videos please don't storm out, it wasn't a conspiracy, they were going to fix Mr. McCain's tape (He also reminded us that he wasn't a citizen and couldn't vote which I thought was funny.).
Oh, OK, I thought. I was glad he had told us that because I would have been one of those people thinking that it had been done on purpose.
Towards the end of the first half the tapes of all the candidates start running and they urge people to give generously to those in need.
Hillary looked great. She was placed beside a picture of Idol and she looked refreshed and happy to be talking with us.
Barrack looked great and enthusiastic. The man is a very good speaker.
and then John McCain came on.
What were his PR people thinking? This was his chance to talk FOR FREE to millions of people and they sent in a total piece of crap.
They had him standing next to a yellow wall with no background, he looked rumbled and tired, and the quality of the film was awful. I wouldn't be surprised if this had been taped at an airport in 5 minutes after he had been campaigning all day.
After seeing that tape I was a little concerned about the organization of the McCain campaign.
Again, I just can't imagine what they were thinking?
Next up, the orphans. Oh, how they will touch your heart!
