Posca, methinks you are over-analyzing this just a bit. After all, do you really believe the general public thinks there is something "special" about Al Franken other than his celebrity status?

If you look at our People Magazine President, I think you'll have to concede Lambchop's point.


I'm ashamed to say I'm a huge celebrity worshiper and I totally agree that the lines between politicians and celebrities are continuing to be blurred therefore the fact that it's tyranny is our fault and won't change for a long time.


Another outstanding essay from the sheep. The only thing I would challenge (and it isn't much of a challenge) is the equation of celebrity and validity. In actuality, the relationship is one of cause and effect. Because you are famous, you must possess a special quality that makes you so. That special quality is then identified with all sorts of things, but never a good publicist.
