Drew Carey Rocks Just Like Cleveland

I was trying to watch the YouTube/CNN Presidential debate.....all I kept thinking of, where is that episode of a good debate from the West Wing? Sigh. I gave up on the debate and went looking for Cleveland news and here it is: Drew Carey has been picked to replace Bob Barker on the Price is Right. I didn't have to go far to look, it was on the CNN website :-)

Now this good news is still not wiping away the images in my head of a bunch of talking heads, er candidates giving sound bytes and not saying anything real. Is that ever going to change? Jill of Writes Like She Talks had a good discussion going for a bit on new political parties or no parties, etc. I admit I cannot find that entry, but since we need some cheer after that debate, here is her current entry on three top employers making a 50 Best List for Small and Medium Employers.

Bob Barker was gracious about Drew taking over. Told him to be himself. "Go out there and do that show the way you think it should be done. Don't imitate me and don't imitate anyone else."

Drew Carey Rocks Peace Out - 3C

Aw, thanks Carole. I was just telling someone today about how positive I think you always try to be. Thanks for including something I wrote in there. :)

You're welcome Jill, it was a good 'read' so thank you too :-)

Drew Carey is so funny. I wonder how he will fit in with The Price is Right old time viewers.

Maureen, hopefully he will appeal to the cheek pinching grandma set! A very different appeal than Barker - when I first moved back here I went to see the tavern in his old neighborhood. Very unobtrusive to say the least!
