how to jump start your career

Firstly, Obama ever more the Awesome O.

Secondly, Julio is a really sweet kid. And sure, if he s got the talent, then all the best to him.

But what I find disturbing - again - is the media hysterics surrounding this "event". Waves of the Joe-The-Plumber brain dead effect cant help flitting through my head. I guess what really bothers me is the fact that anything that appears in front of a camera is immediately deemed as "worthy". I mean, yes, sure Julio had the guts to jump up and down like a crazy person thereby generating enough attention to get him a new job offer. Which - again - great for him.

But is that the only way it works nowadays? To prove you ve got what it takes?
