On Wednesday night, I watched David Letterman interview Barack Obama, and yes, I was very pleased with how the interview went. He addressed the “Lipstick” controversy, and even outlined a lot of things in much better detail. It was a great interview.
After the show, Craig Ferguson’s “Late Late Show” came on. I usually don’t watch his show, because, quite frankly, Ferguson kind of annoyed me. But last night he changed my mind. He was ON FIRE, and what he said needs to be heard by a HELL of a lot more people.
Ferguson just became an American citizen, and will be voting in his first election this year. So you can imagine how seriously he is taking this election. If you can’t imagine it, watch this clip, courtesy of CBS.
He has a damn good point.
“If you don’t vote, you’re a moron. ‘Not voting is a vote,’ – no it isn’t!! Not voting is just being stupid. Voting is not sexy. Voting is not hip. It is not fashionable. It is not a movie. It is not a videogame. Frankly, voting is a pain in the ass. But here is a word, look it up, it’s your duty to vote!”
After the break, Ferguson went on with the voting ‘rant’ – and hit yet another home run.
Yeah… my approval rating for Mr. Ferguson shot up considerably last night.
