So, I'm sure some of you have heard the story of America's Former Sweetheart, Amanda Bynes and her troubles with the law. She was arrested not so long ago for driving under the influence after a hit and run. Well, apparently, that was the beginning of her troubles. She was also charged with backing into a curb and sideswiping another car while she was texting (told you texting and driving is a bad idea). Her driving skills are suspect at best, but that's not what I want to focus on.

Okay, so here's the summary, this chick tweeted Barack Obama to get her out of this mess she's in. She didn't call her lawyer or her mother, she tweeted the President. The leader of the free world. The man who for the next 5 months will be working hard on trying to get people to vote for him. Yes, because the President is so interested in this chick's legal problems.
What happened to common sense? Someone I know once said that common sense isn't really that common. It's so true. It seems like everyone's toothpaste is laced with stupid. Seems like this planet is suffering from a malignant case of wall to wall moron. People now think that tweeting the President is going to get them out of legal trouble. They feel like their celebrity is enough to get help from higher ups. I guess I can understand why she did this. Considering how much of a celebrity President Obama is, it's not beyond the realm of possibility that she thought she was just tweeting her homey for a hook up. It just baffles me how celebrities nowadays believe they are God's gift to God. If used to be that celebrities had some kind of semblance of respect for the law and what not. I guess when you see Charlie Sheen continue to skirt any kind of responsibility for anything he does, it's easy to think that you're under that same rule.
With all the tweeting and Facebooking that we do with stars, it gives them a false sense of worth. You act, you direct, you play some sport, or your grandfather's a big time hotel chain mogul...you're not above the law. I wish people would keep other people accountable. Iron sharpens iron, people.
