Dave!It's a Wonderful Life is playing on television. I loathe that movie. It's one of the single worst films I've ever had to endure. For the life of me I can't figure out why people are so in love with it. Is it the crappy, boring-ass story? The cheesy over-the-top acting? The nausea-inducing predictably clichéd happy ending? What?

Of course, I haven't ruled out that it's because I'm a soulless bastard. I'm totally open to that as a possibility.

It would certainly explain my joy at watching Herman Cain's presidential campaign implode.

I was really hoping he would just shut up, drop out, and go away... but apparently that's not his plan. It would seem he wants to fade into irrelevance like Sarah Palin did. Of course, she managed to make millions of dollars along the way, so there's that...

Herman Cain, Baby

It's odd thinking back to the days when Cain was on the rise and I was actually a fan. Not so much politically, but because he had such a fantastic personality. Back then I was always tuning into his interviews because he was so darn entertaining. But then the crazy started to set in, and there's was no stopping the downward spiral that ensued.

Have to say I didn't anticipate an alleged mistress and all those sexual harassment claims hurrying things along though. If they're not true, as Cain claims, you'd think that dropping out of the race would only make him look guilty... so who knows how that's going to play out.

Guess I'll have to wait for the book.

Or the next Pokémon movie.

    Dude…It’s a Wonderful Life is pure cheese. But I love cheese. And I love It’s a Wonderful Life. No apologies. Let’s agree to disagree.

  2. RW says:

    Soulless bastard sounds plausible. The one guilty pleasure I allow myself all year and you have to stomp all over it. It’s supposed to be predictable, they play it every God damn year. Sheesh.

  3. martymankins says:

    I need to find this interview to hear the Pokémon reference he made.

    So if the rumors are not true, you are right about Cain dropping out of the race making him look guilty. If they are true, then anyone of those that still support him also need to look back to 1996 and see what their position was with Bill Clinton.

    Should be an interesting book with all the stuff twirling in Cain’s head…

  5. Sybil Law says:

    I do looove It’s a Wonderful Life, but I don’t watch it every time it’s on.
    Also, in the case of Mr. Cain, I think, where there’s smoke, there’s fire – and that fucker was smoking all over, apparently.

  6. Robin says:

    I can’t stand It’s a Wonderful Life either! I have never figured out what the appeal is!

  7. Mrs. Hall says:

    i don’t know what to say to you about it’s a wonderful life. Yes, it’s a bit cheesy, of COURSE it’s cheesey, the movie is OLD. older is not sophisticated stuff.

    but the film making is well, all sorts of Frank Capra. Dramatic and sweeping. Addresses core human values, foibles and mortality.

    Jeez. !!!


    take care

    I have never seen It’s a Wonderful Life and based on your strong feelings regarding it, I don’t think I’ll be watching it this year either!
