One of the great things about Steve Jobs is that he gave the world the
iPod, iPad and Apple TV so when the political reporting herd becomes
completely ridiculous I can create my own albums of Edith Piaf, Charles
Aznavour and Yves Montand to complement my selection of Frank Sinatra,
Hank Williams and Bob Dylan. Instead of spending unhealthy time
listening to what passes for political commentary, one can enjoy the
finer things in life. (If anyone is interested in these things, please
advise, I would love to do an iPod and Apple TV piece.) In the meantime,
it is a 50-50 election, and the media herd jib-jab that is now piling
on Obama is far out of control.
1. Obviously Obama has some big problems and should do some things much differently. If I were going to write a column about this, which I may well, it would be titled "A president without friends.”
3. John Boehner should be as worried about the economy as Obama. If the voters throw the bums out, they will throw them all out.
In the meantime, thank goodness for Steve Jobs, and for those who enjoy the finer things and the finer tunes, check out Edith Piaf.
