Okay, so as our country elects the next president of these great United States, can I just take a moment to talk about something more important? Specifically, may I talk about how I am deeply and madly in love with news analyst Chuck Todd?
Sorry, Mr. Pop Rocks, but I can’t keep it inside anymore. I gotta scream it. This election season, political junkettes like me cannot get enough of Chuckie D (as his friends call him). Apparently, I’m definitely not alone. The folks at the Viva Chuck Todd site actually created Halloween cut-out masks so you could dress up like Chuck for trick or treatin’.
What makes me melt for the Toddster? Well, there’s the insightful commentary, the way he makes the complicated uncomplicated, and the passion he so obviously exudes as he goes through the electoral map on MSNBC, Meet the Press, and the Today show.
But more than anything? The dude’s a total nerd which in Miss Pop Rocks’s book equals way hot. Just how nerdy is he? Hello, he got into college on a French horn scholarship! (Wonder what he could do with those lips…meow.)
So as the election season comes blessedly to a close, I just hope there will still be enough of an opportunity for me to catch a glimpse of Chuck Todd’s sweet mug. For the cerebral gals like Miss Pop Rocks, Chuck Todd most definitely is our Brad Pitt.
Chuck, how about comin’ over and helping me count my delegates, if ya get my meaning? – Jennifer Mathieu
