President Obama’s Cameo On History Channel’s “The Bible”
Some Mondays you wake up tired, unsure about what the coming week will bring, and then you glance at the news – and simply say, “Thank you, Mark Burnett.”
There are too few reasons to smile in today’s world, so we must be grateful for each little spot of amusement on the fabric of our sorry existence.
There are a few takeaways from the president’s appearance on the History Channel’s smash hit miniseries, The Bible:
- As Mr. Obama prepares to visit the Middle East for his day job, he’s set to arrive with a new aura of gravitas.
- Especially in America, we appreciate celebrities who don’t take themselves too seriously. The Obama’s must have known this cameo would bring controversy, but so be it: TV ratings are down across the board, and this jolt for The History Channel will be good for the economy.
- Some will try to make the cheap joke, “He probably didn’t even need a teleprompter,” but, let’s bear in mind, the ability to quote Scripture off the cuff speaks well to the man’s religious upbringing.
Anyway, the shoe fit, it was all good fun, yadda yadda; now on with the week.
