Crotchety Has Issues

There is a commercial on TV now that makes me so angry, I just yell and curse at the TV.

Seriously.

I'm usually a relatively laid back guy.....Stop, I'm being serious here.

Ok, maybe I do have real anger issues. But nothing brings them out like the Joe Kennedy oil commercial. I don't know if you have seen it, but it is on TV every 12 minutes or so. In it, Joe Kennedy tells us how wonderful he is to help out old people who can't afford to buy oil to heat their homes. And, then, he is shown pulling a heavy hose to make the delivery.

Joe Kennedy is a 55 year old candy ass former rich kid/politician, who couldn't do that job on a bet. Sure, he can pose for a photo op, but I can guarantee he would collapse if he had to do it for a whole day. I used to do that job when I was a young guy, and it is exhausting. I'm just sick of politicians and other schmucks who act as if they are just "regular folks." You've seen them, as they pose with firemen holding an ax, sit in cop cars like they are on patrol, and just generally act like putzes.

It's not funny, it's not realistic, and it sure doesn't make me respect them. Does anyone really believe a friggin Kennedy is out all day doing honest hard work? That would be a first.

Finally, a note to Entrecard droppers: I return every drop, but sometiomes I use my other EC accounts, like my Yankee one, or my Toast one.

Politicians like that make me sick. I am glad not to be subjected to the crap of which you speak.

Michelle said...

Yeah!!!!

HAPPY MONDAY!!!

ReformingGeek said...

Say it ain't so. But it was on TV. It must be true!

Not to get all political here, but not only does Joe like to play " workin man " on TV, but he shoves Hugo Chavez down our throats.

Jenn Thorson said...

I haven't spotted this one, but will be paying more attention now. :)

Lauren said...

Not to mention that the deal he has is with the devil...or anything....

LL said...

What's next? Does he pose on your snow covered driveway with the Crotchety Old Lady and her new shovel?

Shameless really...

Joel Klebanoff said...

You're being too hard on the Kennedy family. I'll bet he could do that job all day if he was fortified with a little alcohol.

Don said...

That's the same everywhere. I guess one difference is when one of our politicians says he used to drive a bulldozer, ride bulls, fly fighter jets or owned a restaurant, they probably did...ironically, that still doesn't make them honest. Assholes!

Charmaine said...

We have a mayor out round these parts Mayor Villarigosa.

He does more commercials than anyone. He goes to more fun raisers then anyone. His commercials tell us what he is doing for us.

Recently his calendar was published. It revealed that he spends approximately 1 hour a month actually doing his job.

The rest is redacted as "family/personal time" or fundraising. That's it. groan.

Keep it up, Crotchety, keep it up.

Da Old Man said...

@ FishHawk: Well, you also believe the Cowboys aren't a bunch of criminals who happen to play football

@ Dizz: You and me, both. The commercial just came on again, while I was typing this, BTW.

@ Michelle: Happy Monday to you

@ Reforming: TV doesn't lie.

@ Lot2learn: Yeah, I almost forgot about that. "The people of Venezuela" my butt.

@ Jenn: You must be watching DVDs. It is on constantly. :)

@ Lauren: Uh huh

@ LL: He'll throw one shovelful, and hand the shovel right back to her.

@ Joel: And then go for a drive.

@ Don: That is a difference, but they still suck

@ Charmaine: He should be doing something besides fund raising?
LOL

Da Old Man said...

@ Sherry: OK
:)

It's really quite sad the image politcians have worked so hard to give themselves these days. Is it any wonder the majority of the population just doesn't vote any more?

Sandee (Comedy +) said...

See why I don't have television Crotchety? It is just a waste of time. I would be just as irritated as you are now.

Have a terrific day. :)

dana wyzard said...

And here I was, thinking "if JOE can do it, so can I", and here I was, dragging a big hose up to a house when the door flew open and they turned the dogs loose on me.

The Self-Deprechaun said...

I have not seen this commercial but I hope to be the politician that kisses babies and becomes the source of your Crotchety Rants, then, I will know that I made it.

Can politicians win your zucchini award?

Da Old Man said...

@ Nonamed: It explains the situation so well

@ Sandee: You have made a wise choice, I think

@ Dana: I hate when that happens, though it would be great on youtube

@ Self: You liove in NY area. The thing is on TV constantly. Oh wait, you're a newlywed. Not a lot of TV watching for you. :)
No, politicians can't win the award. It takes work, and talent.

PaulsHealthBlog.com said...

Oh, and you forgot the ones that show the politician behind the kitchen serving line, with an apron on, serving food.

Yeah right.

As soon as that camera shuts off, and the photo opportunity is over, said politician takes off that apron, and goes out to the customized bus and gets something to eat that was catered.

Petra a.k.a The Wise (*Young*) Mommy said...

Yes, that commercial pisses me off too.

Smug ass.

Da Old Man said...

@ Paul: You know it.

@ Petra: And it's on all the time.

Chat Blanc said...

Oh man that sounds like the most ridiculous ad. It must not be running here in the midwest, or I've just missed it for some reason, and I'm thankful for that!! :)

Ryan Garns said...

It's almost as though smugness runs in the Kennedy family.
