What does Jonathan have to say?



Who do you trust?

I saw an article the other day talking about who is now America's Most Trusted Person since Walter Cronkite has passed away.  The choices included: Oprah, Jon Stewart, Tom Hanks, Suze Orman, Colin Powell, Tom Brokaw, Michelle Obama, Jay Leno and General David Petraeus and Warren Buffett. This list was quite perplexing to me.  I admit I like most of the people on the list, but how can we pick one as the most trusted in America? Let's break it down: oprah-dr-phil-reuniteOprah: Oprah is Oprah and she does tell us what books to read, but how can  we trust someone who unleashed Dr.  Phil on the world? Jon Stewart:  I love him and enjoy watching The Daily Show every night, but he's a comedian and he's the first to tell you he's doing a comedy show that happens to have a little bit of news. Tom Hanks: Love his movies, but we're talking movies!  I feel like he's a decent human being and probably shares many of the same political views as me, but he's not a journalist.  Although I have to admit  he's great in everything he does including Bosom Buddies. Suze Orman: She's the financial talk guru.  It's not her fault, but she'll have to wait until my 401K gets back up to at least a 301K before I can consider her. Colin Powell:  A great American hero, but would have been even more trustworthy if he would have run for President of the U.S. and switched parties.  Also I know it's not his fault, but I can still picture him standing in front of the United Nations with all those charts explaining why we should attack Iraq. Tom Brokaw: Love Tom, but what has he REALLY been up to since he left the NBC Nightly News? Michelle Obama:  Wonderful first lady, but she's got her hands full right  now with two little girls and that whole First Lady gig. Jay Leno: Good comedian, hard worker and has the reputation as being one of the all-time nicest guys in show business.b91944c144ed09b6 However, he never takes vacation.   Even when he's not doing his show, he's doing stand-up somewhere in the U.S.  How can we trust a guy who NEVER takes vacation? General David Petraeus:  This is a Catch 22 situation.  He's another military guy.  I trust the military,  but I also know that sometimes  they have to lie to us so how can I trust them? Warren Buffett: He's  hard working and started from nothing to create a vast empire.  He's a great investor and not a show-off.  He's truly followed the American Dream, but he's so #$%@-ing rich!  Even if he's humble, it would still get annoying that he can buy and sell most small countries several times over! So what can we do?  Is there no Most Trusted Person in America to follow Walter Cronkite?  I think I've made my decision.  He's brutally honest and has a great sense of humor.   I present to you the Most Trust Dog in America:  Triumph  the Insult Comic Dog.  Just watch him do a weather forecast in Hawaii.
