I Have So Many Questions…

It may be dangerous for me to keep watching The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. There, I said it.  I mean, I really don’t know what I would do without the therapy that Colbert provides.  There are some mornings where I have to get a hit of Colbert before I head to work. (Thanks, CBS All Access!) So, I thought I’d try a little something different this week and share some of the REALLY IMPORTANT QUESTIONS I’ve started asking that were prompted by my Colbert flavored therapy sessions…

(Warning: There my be a gratuitous over use of … throughout this blog because… COLBERT!)

  1. Is it now a common accepted practice to be able to use imaginary (aka. completely made up) numbers in public statements when you are an elected official? Seriously, this concerns me because what are we going to do with all of these Political Science and Economics majors?
  2. Can Jon Batiste and Stay Human PLEASE be my personal superhero music provider and follow me around from meeting to meeting? Because, MAN! Lets start a Kickstarter for THAT!
  3. What will the Late Night shows do once Twitter dies a natural death? Cause you know it’s gonna happen one day…
  4. Who thought it would be a good idea to hold auditions for Season 2 of Umbrella Academy on Air Force One?  I know the show is awesome but really…yeah, I saw that “tell tell” umbrella on the stairs outside the plane door in that news clip…
  5. What does it mean when press conferences employee “props” to make a point?
  6. Do speech writers and personal assistants to politicians not practice their politicians on their speeches before they get up in front of people or cameras? (How do you misquote the Bible?!?!?)
  7. How long will it be before I can watch the actual news without feeling nauseous?
