Maybe if it was a Cake cover of Dancing Queen... [Aug. 13th, 2008|09:38 am]

Presidential election season is upon us, for better or for worse. For me, it is a fantastic opportunity to learn ridiculously stupid information about those people who yearn to lead us. Today's worthless information? The candidates top ten favorite songs. Here's what I find interesting though: McCain willingly submitted TWO tracks from ABBA to Blender magazine as favorites. Maybe his handlers thought he could handle a simple task like providing ten songs to a magazine without inserting anything that might be embarrassing. Seriously, Dancing Queen? I thought Giuliani was the cross-dressing GOP candidate. If Obama had included ABBA tracks, you know that the right-wing pundits would have a field day with his terrible taste. Do you think anyone will insinuate some homo-erotic tendencies about McCain though? Doubtful. Even the Merle Haggard and Roy Orbison tracks can't save his list. It's almost like he submitted a karaoke favorites list and not his desert island top ten. Granted, Obama including that track from will.i.am consisting of a collage of his speeches is a little self-congratulatory, but it isn't a bad song and I suppose one could construe it as Obama trying to ensure that he stays true to himself. Still, a little weird.

I've figured out why How I Met Your Mother is infinitely better than Friends ever was: a constant antagonist that you can't help but love. Who did the cast of Friends have? The naked guy? Gunther? Ross? Barney provides a villain and comedy relief, all in one. It helps that HIMYM doesn't take itself nearly as seriously and is much more clever.
