Adam Carolla Podcasts

This may end up sounding like a commercial but I have to say it anyway. I recently started downloading and listening to Adam Carolla's Podcasts off of iTunes. These podcasts which are a very loose and free association type of interview are usually extremely funny and always entertaining. I have finished every one of the shows. He has re-occuring guests that range from his childhood friends to Jimmy Kimmel or Dr Drew. Comedians or actors plugging new movies, even Greg Gutfeld from Red Eye a month or so back was a guest.

Some people may remember him from The Man Show, which, admittedly I found rather objectionable as a show or possibly they listened to him and Dr Drew on the radio with The Love Lines show, which I listened to and enjoyed immensely. But this is somehow different. He is a different man perhaps now that he is married with twins. He seems a little wiser, but with all the humor. He is not all babes, beer and breasts. His podcast topics run from cars, building projects, movies, women, past, future, kids, wives, drinking, pranks, sex and culture. And so much more. He has what I call, (and maybe others do) Carollisms. I am not sure if the thoughts he has are off the cuff or well thought out but most ring very true and sincere. he has repeated some on different podcasts which leads me to believe he is sincere in his beliefs. They are usually about health or something equally as general which he has picked up over the years.

People who are queasy about language, a little sexism, inappropriate jokes, should not indulge. But if you have an open mind, find a little vulgarity amusing and are not offended when everything is not entirely PC, you will enjoy the experience. It's free off of iTunes and is called, of all things, Adam Carolla Podcasts. I highly recommend them.

As a conservative female nearing her 40's, low to middle income, no kids, in school, intelligent and trying to survive, I have found there to be a dirth of voices that I feel adequately represent me. I guess I am supposed to connect somehow to either Sarah Palin, Meghan McCain or possibly Carrie PreJean.

My frustration level at not being able to express myself in what I am looking for in a leader is over the top. I know what I don't want. Wait, no I don't even think I know what I don't want. But I'll try. Male, female that doesn't matter. They can't be a "Birther" or a "Truther". They must believe in the constitution and upholding it. I would like someone who leans a little more towards the Libertarian Party in economics, but a more conservative in social areas. I am pretty conservative in my beliefs, but I hesitate to force my opinions on others when it comes to personal liberties. Maybe I am too black and white. If I don't hear key words that apply to me, I feel like I am not represented or no one is speaking my "language".

I don't care about Meghan's breasts and it offends me that sex is a part of her spiel. I don't know how she is taken seriously and I feel that she reflects poorly on the Conservative Party. And only because she projects herself as a voice for them. If she just had some ideas and talked about them, fine, great. But someone might mistake her for someone I believe in! Yuck! I am not even going to talk about PreJean. She is just another Joe the Plumber. Time and place people, time and place.

I await to see more from Palin and I hope she pans out into something worthy of the following she is creating. There are some good people rooting for her and I would like to see them rewarded by a person who can come through and do what they say they will. But I don't know if she is the one I'd choose either.

I like Newt. But I don't think he is viable. Oh, Charles Krauthammer would be good. I like the Judge. I see I have a Fox Panelist Party for 2012.

Oh good night!
