The Dangers of Reality TV – Part Deux

The incomparable Jackie (Morganfield) Lambert the great niece of the legendary blues man Muddy Waters has once again offered another empowering and insightful gift of wisdom. Jackie offers her powerful commentaries on "LET'S TALK ABOUT IT" every Tuesday night at 9:00 PM (est) on with me and the Wild & Wonderful Brenda White. You must join us for the fastest growing political talk show on the air talk where we talk about the political news of the day and all the crazy goings-on in our country. It’s a blast!!!

The Dangers of Reality TV – Part Deux

In last week’s commentary, I poked fun at the Republican Presidential Debates – comparing them to a tacky reality show. It is horrifying to think that my snarky comments of last week have now found expression in the person of Donald Trump.

On December 27th, Donald Trump will moderate his own Presidential Debate - one week before the Iowa Caucuses. He staged an announcement with none other than Republican front-runner, Newt Gingrich, standing at his side. He and Newt apparently had a wonderful meeting. They found a way to help Donald sell his new book and promote his reality show, while helping Newt to hawk his books and DVD’s. I mean, that’s what the 2012 Presidential contest is for, right?

This stunt demonstrates a total lack of respect for both the political process and the American electorate. How can the voters take any of these people seriously? When did the political process become so incredibly ridiculous? How can we save ourselves from this foolishness?

It has been said that you can fool some of the people all of the time and, all of the people some of the time but, you can’t fool all of the people all of the time. Let us hope that this time, NONE of the people will be fooled. Let us hope that informed voters will reject these cynical ploys.

Yes, last week I compared the Republican Presidential Debates to a reality show. And, this week, I am reminded that God truly does have a wicked sense of humor.
