Mr. President, I’m still glad I voted for you, but I got a few things I need to say.
When I listened to Bill Maher’s last “new rule” on his HBO show Friday night, I was a bit taken back – but as I continued to listen, I found myself mostly agreeing with him.
Reality check: you have turned yourself into a celebrity.
Rather than repeat everything that Maher said, let’s go to the video.
I very much agree with Maher when he says you’re on television way too much. I think Jay Leno needs to be worried about that 10:00 p.m. slot on NBC. If it were offered to you, you would take it in a heartbeat.
I also agree that you need to work harder on health care, get more hard ass on the banks and be more concerned about global warming. I mean, if you can’t push reform through now with the GOP on their backs, when can you?
The one area where I don’t agree with Maher is that I never ever want to see that “Bush attitude” back. The country doesn’t need anymore of that bullshit.
So keep smiling, Mr. President, keep being a nice guy – but push harder on getting real reform done. Remember, you won the damn election.
And while I’m at it, I have one more request.
Please stop sending me e-mails! I helped you during the election, even sent some money, but enough is enough. You’re too busy to actually be sitting down at a computer writing me letters and I know somebody on your staff is doing it for you. Please tell them to stop. It’s beginning to remind me of junk mail.
Alright, I’m done. Just remember, Bill and I still love you.
