Target: Betty White
Goal: Encourage American actress Betty White to contribute her personality by introducing President Obama at the Democratic National Convention
Undoubtedly by now, most have seen or at least heard about Clint Eastwood’s recent bout of senile deficiency displayed at the Republican National Convention. It provided for a moment of awkwardness, but more importantly, presented senior citizens in a somewhat negative light and, as a result, spurred democratic citizens to consider who their celebrity speaker may be for the upcoming DNC. Social media has now declared that it will push to elect Betty White, a well-known comedian, actress, and television personality, to redeem senior citizens and give a presentation worth listening to.
Betty White is the perfect candidate for the DNC’s celebrity guest for many reasons. She has won seven Emmy awards, three of which were for comedy, in addition to two “Viewers for Quality Television” awards. These accomplishments point to her ability to capture an audience with wit and humor, and not the kind that leaves viewers confused and distracted. Not only would her speech consist of actual comedy, but the many honors and awards she has received for philanthropic work with animals display her compassion and humanity. She has received awards from the American Veterinary Medical Association, the Los Angeles Zoo, and the USDA Forest Service for her work, and she holds the creditable title of Kentucky Colonel for her accomplishments. These commendable traits speak for her character, and a representative of an intelligent political party should choose someone who exemplifies these publicly. Betty White is therefore the ideal candidate in every way.
Ask Betty White to accept the position of celebrity guest at the upcoming Democratic National Convention. She would be the best possible candidate to introduce our President, as she exemplifies positive philanthropic traits and an undeniably comedic personality. It was unfortunate that Mr. Eastwood portrayed senior citizens as pathetic and absentminded nitwits. Ms. White can redeem this situation and show the world how captivating seniors can truly be.
Dear Betty White,
Due to the recent and unfortunate incident at the Republican National Convention where Mr. Clint Eastwood portrayed senior citizens as bumbling and humorless duds, we ask that you redeem the reputation of seniors by accepting to introduce President Barack Obama at the DNC. This is an opportunity to display your humor and good-sense to a public that has been frustrated by recent political events.
Not only does your personality lend itself to this position, as you are undoubtedly funny and intelligent, but your past awards and honors also show that you are the kind of person who should be representing our President. You are a philanthropist and exactly the kind of person who best epitomizes what this country should stand for – generosity. A light-hearted and humorous speech is exactly what the American people need right now in order to combat the resentful and humorless speeches that have been polluting the media as of late. We vote for you, Betty! Please accept this honorable position.
