Another Letter to Barack Obama

"I know you're happy to see me, but that's a little too close, Mr. President."

Dear Mr. President,

You have done it again.

You interfered with my one hour of escapism per week. One hour. On Monday night. That's all I'm asking for. I really don't think it's too much to ask for you to leave it alone.

You may recall that I was not amused by your press conference which interfered with my watching of House. I appreciate that you learned your lesson on that one.

I am less amused that you took Kal Penn.

Kal Penn, though you are forgiven for not realizing it since I hadn't added him yet, is on my list of "crushes-the married years". I have had dreams in which Kal plays starring roles. (He and a friend of mine were playing a prank on their boss but I was the one who had to break into the boss's house to turn off the fountain. Hm. Does the White House have a fountain?)

To add insult to injury, not even a full week after he was killed off the show*, he was photographed wearing a very boring suit at the White House Easter Egg thing!! Seriously? You stole him for that?!

And, okay, I realize it was his choice to work for you, and it's great that he's pursuing his other passion of politics, but I confess that I am secretly hoping that this is one really long research trip for "Harold and Kumar go to the White House".

A Unamused Voter who lives in Franklin County, Ohio and voted for you last time but if you keep messing with House may have to switch sides

*I've delayed writing this so all the people who had Tivo'd that episode could get around to watching it. But if you haven't watched it by now, you're clearly not that serious about it.

I'm glad you keep me up to date on the information of the world - I watch House, but couldn't figure out why they killed him off the show.... I'm so glad you're there to keep me on track!
