BREAKING NEWS! Well, according to the Huffington Post it's breaking news. For me, it might be my breaking point. Brace yourselves. Jimmie Walker is not a fan of President Barry.
That's right. Jimmie Walker. Now, if you're sitting there and thinking to yourself, "Who the eff is Jimmie Walker?" I have the feeling that you are not alone. See, Jimmie Walker was the star of a relatively successful television program that went off the air in 1979. I'll save you the trouble and do the math. It was thirty-three years ago. Of course, just because his show went off the air six presidents ago, that doesn't necessarily mean that he isn't relevant. I mean, he's not, but it's not really a given. He hasn't done hardly anything since then (unless you're going to count his Syfy movie Super Shark, and why wouldn't you?) and even if he had, I don't know why we would care what he thinks about President Barry.
I don't know exactly how it was that Jimmie Walker was asked about his views on President Barry and I'm not so sure that I care to know. Actually, I'd like to know who asked him about them because I have a few questions for that person. Questions like "Was Todd Bridges not available?" and "Do you know what Sherman Hemsley thinks about gay marriage?" Oh, and of course "HOW IS THIS ACTUAL REPORTING?!?!"
We really need a moratorium on all sorts of political "reporting" until about two weeks before the election (which cannot come soon enough, thank you very much). And we need a complete end to asking once-celebrities what they think about anything political. And dear God, if you're someone who is going to base your vote depending upon the political leanings of Jimmie Walker, please, please don't vote. Ever.
