I like Ellen. She is funny, engaging and reasonably intelligent in a self-effacing way---all part of her charm. But if she were to run for president, I could not taker her seriously: funny she is; stupid she is not. Years ago, comedian Pat Paulsen ran for president---as a joke. As for her thoughts on the Virgin Diaries, who really cares? I don't. But, then again, I am not a comedian and don't have to be concerned with ratings. Never thought much of Oprah Winfrey's opinionations either, but money can always buy an audience.

Pop culture does not improve the long-term survivability of homo sapiens. If anything, it is curtailing it.
