Ted McGinley Rears His (Proverbially) Ugly Head

Let’s focus on what’s really important in the world right now.

The Olympics? No, those are over. And might I add, the US Boxing team brought back one single, solitary bronze medal.

The DNC? No, that’s pretty much under control. There will be snark upcoming, but I got nothing right now.

I’m talking about the really important stuff:

Dancing With The Stars released its Season 7 celebrity list! Oh thank god, I’ve been waiting with baited breath!

Tapping their tootsies in Season 7: All My Children‘s Susan Lucci, reality TV star Kim Kardashian, singer Toni Braxton, N*Sync’s Lance Bass, Oscar winner Cloris Leachman, Super Bowl ring bearer Warren Sapp, chef Rocco DiSpirito, Hannah Montana‘s Cody Linley, beach volleyball gold medalist Misty May-Treanor, comedian Jeffrey Ross, track gold medalist Maurice Green, and actor Ted McGinley.

First thoughts:

— The early favorite should be Lance Bass and Toni Braxton, considering they’ve had to dance before in some form or another.

— Cloris Leachman? I’m sorry, was Queen Elizabeth II unavailable?

— Ted McGinley. This is bad. You do realize that every show in the 80s that Ted McGinley joined the cast of, died in about a few seasons? Does he still have that death touch?

I’m fearing for the life of the show.

Michelle Obama at the DNC “We’re Just Like You”

Michelle Obama

Michelle Obama

Michelle Obama’s speech was heartfelt, passionate and executed very well.  She did what she had to do to portray her husband as a “regular” American with an exotic name.  I do not believe the speech will make much of a difference in November, but speeches like this can help add to a positive perception of the candidate.  Honestly, I’m not sure what we should expect a prospective first spouse to say in a speech at a National Convention.  I’m not even really sure why they speak?  They aren’t the ones we are electing…  but I digress.  The speech was good and probably helped in a small way re-shape Obama as a regular guy to some people, perhaps even Clinton supporters and/or undecided voters.

Cheers,

Tom
