I don’t know about you guys, but it’s always fun and exciting to see who’s going to be on People’s Sexiest Man Alive cover each year. When this time comes around, I’m always taking bets on who the lucky man (in more ways than one) could possibly be. But after seeing the big reveal yesterday, with Blake Shelton named the Sexiest Man for 2017, I have thoughts.
Tonight, President Obama will address the nation one last time in his much anticipated farewell speech. As I come to terms with what that really means, it’s hard to find solace. The reasons are a bit complicated, some of them easier to articulate than others, but all equally as hard to swallow. So as we prepare for what I know will be an emotional night, I’d like to reflect.

First Lady Michelle Obama is passionate about a lot of things.

Dr. Ben Carson is…well, a doctor. A neurosurgeon, to be exact. And if that isn’t one of the biggest ironies of all ironies, I just don’t know what is. And I say that because this man is soooo obtuse, that it’s hard to imagine him helping another living being with THEIR brain. Aside from Dr. Carson being incredibly out of touch, and I’m not sure how anyone could actually be a supporter.
