If Nickelodeon ever needs a political commentator, they know who to call

I definitely have strong political opinions, but I prefer to keep them to myself unless asked, and let my voting be my voice.

However, I just got roped into watching the vice presidential debate, and I can't help but share my reaction.

I would like to hear Sarah Palin provide the voice for a Saturday morning cartoon character, someone similar to Bobby's mom on Bobby's World. What I wouldn't give to hear her say, "Gee golly, Bobby!" And darned if she didn't nearly do it.

I would like to hear Joe Biden read me a bedtime story, preferably something from Tolkien or Lewis, heck even someone less fantastical and more earthy, like Norman Maclean. In fact, if I ever direct a movie that requires a weathered man for the voice-over, he's number one on my list.

But Biden would be wasted as a voice-over. I think he's quite handsome -- that smile. But maybe I'm just showing my age. I suppose he looks like a grandpa to you, daughter dear.

Nah, Biden is too polished and politicky to be weathered. The perfect role for him is the happy drunk who amuses everyone with ribald one-liners throughout the opening scenes, but then offers some much-needed, heartfelt advice to the protagonist right when he needs it most. "If you love her, SHOW her that you love her. Whatever it takes."

You guys are right. I was thinking wrong. See? Political talk doesn't have to be nasty.
