Bill Murray Shills for Romney

Bill MurrayBack in February, I was too busy celebrating my birthday by hiding from everyone I know to notice that Bill Murray was shilling for Mitt Romney on CNBC. This brings up one of the great annoyances of life that is always simmering in my brain stem. But first I should tell you what Blurry said. It wasn’t explicit. “I think we ought to be personally responsible. I think if you can take care of yourself, and then maybe try to take care of someone else, that’s sort of how you’re supposed to live.”

Frankly, I’m not sure what to make of the end of that. You’re supposed to take care of yourself so you can take care of someone else who shouldn’t need it because they’re supposed to take care of themselves? But Blurry isn’t finished with his babble, “It’s not a question of asking other people for help or being rescued or anything like that. I think we’ve sort of gotten used to someone looking out for us, and I don’t think any other person is necessarily going to be counted on to look out for us.”

I would continue with the quote but it becomes a tangled mess. So let me tell you what I think our friend Blurry is trying to say:

I’m an asshole who, with relatively meager skills, has become ridiculously rich and famous. I want to support a philosophy that not only tells me that I don’t need to give a shit about anyone else but that also tells me that it is a sign of the perfection of the universe that I am so successful. Also, I don’t want any of my fans to know what an asshole I am.

Do I have that about right, Bill, I mean, Mr. Blurry? I just have one question, “Does this press liaison position come with dental?”
