Just what does George Bush have
in common with Tom Cruise? Well,
didn’t you know that George was a Navy
tighter pilot? He is considered a war
hero. Maybe you don’t care because
you’re a Dukakis die-hard. It you are,
maybe you should go do your laundry
because whet you read may change your
mind and cause you to do something
radical like vote Republican.
Back to the ballgame. What do you
know about George? I’ll tell you, this
guy knows what detense is. He is a
candidate that is strong on detense.
This is what America needs. Don’t say
"what about spending that money on the
poor and hungry?* Listen, it we don’t
spend money on detense, chances are
you won’t be making enough to
contribute to any ot your tavorite
charities. Ever thought about how much
those tolks in Russia give to world
hunger? Let’s not get in the same boat
they’re in by dropping our detenses.
George won’t let that happen.
How did you like the Greneda
invasion? Wasn’t it great to see one on
the scoreboard tor the U.S.A. otter such
a long drought? Guess who convened
the meeting that got that ott the
ground? Yep, good ole’ George. He
tavors a toreign policy "more
knowledgeable, muscular and
interventionist than anything Dukakis*
would impose (U.S. News and World
Report 22 Aug. 1988). That is to say
that he doesn’t wont us to take any
more ott the tolks that want to pul us
in toilet paper lines 50 times as lone
os the one at Annabelle’s on Thursday
Iran arms-tor-hostages trade— is
that what bugs you about George?
Come on, how much intluence do you
think the Vice President has? This guy
headed up a Task torce on Combating
Terrorism and recommended against
giving concessions to terrorists but
was ignored during the whole deal.
In a nutshell, here are a tew more
ot George’s interests: he has backed
civil rights legislation, the
18-year-old vote, the pull-out ot Viet
Nam, and was one ot the best CIA
directors ever. He opposes the Equal
Rights Ammendment. Come on gals,
let’s not beat a dead horse— what are
you missing out on? Do you really want
to see this pass with Mike’s
admnistration and then watch San
Francisco spread to the east coast?
You know what I mean. Ot course you
don’t want to pay more taxes, do you?
Well, you say, he just doesn’t have
a good image on television. The U.S.
News and World Repprt says that, "Bush
is otten stitt, awkward and silly, as
inept verbally as Jerry Ford seemed to
be physically.* Look, let’s tace it,
we’ve been spoiled by the Gipper. And
turthermore, Mike Dukakis ain’t no
Johnny Carson. George says, *Be
yourselt, be what you are in lite. Don’t
try to change just because you’re
running tor President.* Just ask
yourselt, would Tom Cruise or George
Bush ever want us to drop our
detenses? Nope, I believe they’d want
us to have Top Guns.

When I’m all through with tour
hours straight ot classes, I'd like to
temporarily place logic, protound
doctrine and grand protessions ot
wisdom trom my teachers all on the
back burners tor a while and tor an hour
deal with the sillyness. Inanity, and
buttoonry that only the Flinstones and
Scrooge McDuck can provide.
Sillyness, inanity, and buttoonry I
get. But it’s the wrong sort.
While I want to watch colorful
caricatures make major mayhem,
someone high on Nehi or Cheerwine has
the channel on some talk show. And it
you bring the subject up, you’ll soon see
that I'm not quite the devotee to either
Phil, Oprah, or Geraldo. I know that
this may get the majority ot MA-Hall
residents riled, but even it they
barricade the video game room in
protest. I’ll still keep my stand. Why?
Here are some reasons, each talk show
host getting his/her due:
PHIL DONAHUE: Nice guy, but he
seems a bit too diverged in his topic
choices. He’s usually covering
something that’s a bit too remote and
trivial, such as Sagittarian Nuns tor
Breakdancing, or Siamese Twins that
Can’t Relate to Gartield. Sorry, Phil.
Next time you do something on
Redheaded College Students with
Violent Allergies, I’ll give you a call.
GERALDO RIVERA: This chap's
motto is ’Passion isn’t a dirty word."
Sometimes he brings to our attention
stutt that needs to be discussed, like
the threats of urban gangs, drug abuse,
and the rise of Satanism. But when he’s
not doing that, he’s usually speaking on
something that respectable people
wouldn’t talk about in public.
Discussions on the sensualness of
women’s breasts and on celebrity
women that have had sex with other
celebrities do no good for developing •
the Christian mind.
OPRAH WINFREY: I don’t suppose
she's that bad when you see her at
first, but when she talks, she is usually
speaking to the women in TV-land. It’s
hard for men to truly appreciate talks
on how to avoid stretch marks.
Add on the fact that these shows
tend to be slanted to the liberal’s point
of view. In their efforts to be
"broad-minded* for all audiences
concerned, the truly good Christian
aspects that can be gleaned from a
show or two are watered down. I’m
sorry but 1 can’t see the
worthwhileness of the TV talk shows.
Are there those that would do me a
small favor? Pray that Channel 13
would bring back the A-Team. Piessef
