JJ McCartney takes a break: will return Monday October 10th
You could say it's about time JJ took a real vacation. Not a medically induced break for surgery, life-flight helicopter rides or ambulance rides to the hospital. Just a bona fide vacation. Now, Mr. Obama, THIS is how real Americans take vacations:
They pick a date on the calendar and they try very hard to make sure all their work is caught up and that nothing disastrous will happen if they take time off. Then, they check wi their boss/bosses and clear it with them, they then inform all their relevant coworkers so they will know what is going on and once they do all of that, they plan their activities and then make sure they won't break the bank by going.
Then, and only then, do they take a short vacation.
Oh, one more thing, Barry: if the taking of said vacation is going to cause all hell to break loose, or if all hell breaks loose at any point during the vacation, Americans cut short their plans and get back to the job. It's called being responsible. You should try it some time.
OK, end of presidential lesson # 1.
JJ will be keeping an eye on the news, and if something major breaks, you can count on us to get back in-studio faster than Bill Clinton can drop trou.
meanwhile, please enjoy the best of The JJ McCartney Show, and please enjoy some time wi your family and friends while we do likewise.
Also, please remember us in your prayers, as we are dealing with some technical issues in the studio which will require some funds to repair.
Meanwhile, never forget what Al Gore told Joe Lieberman in 2000, as the Florida polls were closing: "We've totally got this in the bag, Joe, I know because I stayed up until 5 am this morning calling every voter in Florida personally to ask for their vote."
