LL Cool J still has a career?
Tuskegee fighter pilot Shelby Westbrook was voiced by LL Cool J in the History Channel series WW2 in HD.
and did a yeoman like job of it.
Does she want to be a politician or a journalist? I like her a lot, but I can’t figure out the TV series gigs.
I don’t think she is going to run. Neither is Huckleberry.
I will watch though.
Good exposure and getting paid for it. makes sense to me.
She and Huckabee are both smart politicians. It’s not something I understand politically but Godspeed.
“LL Cool J still has a career?”
He’s in NCIS Los Angeles...my wife likes him...I think he’s OK...I’ve seen him act and he’s actually pretty good.
Multi talented people deserve no respect.
NCIS Los Angeles.
NCIS Los Angeles
He was cast as a series regular in the CBS police procedural NCIS: Los Angeles, a spin-off of the NCIS. LL Cool J plays Special Agent Sam Hanna, an ex Navy SEAL who is fluent in Arabic and an expert on West Asian culture. The series debuted in autumn of 2009, but the characters were introduced in an April 2009 crossover episode on the parent show.
He does a good job.
He stars in the CBS NCIS spin-off, which I gather does fairly well. This is a smart move on his part as NCIS skews a little more conservative than most broadcast dramas on TV.

Yes he does and he is a great guy. Very funny and personable.
Always enjoy meeting him.
I won't watch, but I'll still be embarrassed for her and of her if she does that.
Isn't Greta on 10 PM on Thursday April 1 at 10pm ET as normal? When is Greta's program supposed to come on then?
Sarah can be anything she wants to be. She is doing it her way. I was worried initially but I’ve been really impressed with her instincts. I know some here cant deal with it when she doesn’t tie herself to a cross and wait for Armageddon.
Sarah is preparing herself not to be a Barry Goldwater but a Reagan and yet I believe she will be something more.
Hockey momma said knock you out.
I think she’s done as a politician and I liked her and had high hopes. Oh well. Next!
LL Cool K is one of the early rappers who didn’t do the gangsta thing.
He played Robin Williams half brother in the movie “Toys” years ago.
Silly me. Thanks for the info.
Yeah, I get the exposure mantra - for someone who wants to be a journalist, which is where she started out of college, right?
Too much exposure in politics is a bad thing though. It just gives the left more soundbytes to use negatively.
Overexposure was my first thought as well. I like her, but don’t want to see her every time I turn on the tv.
Personally, I think it would serve her more to take a bit of a leave, spend time with her family, and come back again.
Why would this guy write ‘this is not an April Fool’s joke’? What’s not to believe? Geez. I guess he wants to determine what Sarah may and may not do, huh?
we worry for palin alot. We put all our hopes and dream from this nightmare on her shoulders, but if she does not run for 2012, everyone will be be depressed
Oh great, more celebrities!
As I said when she signed up with FOX, she is not running.
Otherwise she would be touring and speaking overseas.
Think Ronald Reagan! Movie star - Governor - Potus!
IMHO We have enough *one-trick* ponies in Washington DC.
Sarah is not a phony pony - she’s a steeple chasing work horse;)
You gotta be kidding me.
Ronald Reagan says “Hello!”.
What do you think Reagan did in between losing to Ford in ‘76 and running in ‘80?
“...Look what overexposure has done to the kenyan...”
Yes, Sarah needs to be careful to keep her forums positive and not let herself become “a television personality”. Even the best TV types are still not what Sarah can be.
One of the driving forces in elections nowadays, is the "youth" vote. The young are very idealistic, don't know squat about history or thinking logically, want a bunch of free stuff, and will vote for whoever is "cool". You've got to have that group energized when you enter into a campaign. I'm convinced that what helped BJ Clinton win was going on Arsenio Hall and playing the saxophone. I was in my 20's at the time, and even though I didn't trust the Democrats, even I felt that was just "too cool".
I dunno. I mean, it’s kind of like being a porn star. If someone has been a rapper, it’s hard to imagine that they can be a real person, and not this Dennis Rodman kind of pierced, tatooed freakazoid that no normal person would ever want to get within 20 feet of. If you go to a concert it’s sort of like going to the zoo. Except Marky Mark. I guess he grew out of it ok, I like Entourage.
This IMO isn’t just overexposure—it’s wrong exposure.
I tend to agree. There’s very little Foreign Affairs experience to be gained in documentaries of Alaska and Celebrity Features.
Will she have a band? Like... the Wasilla Hoe-Down Jug Band?
LL has a conservative story if you know how he grew up. He even wrote songs thanking his grandma for raising him right.
Keeps her in the spotlight, helps pay the bills and keeps people talking about her. What is there to figure out?
/sarc Yeah..and Reagan wasn't running either when he did his radio program in between losing to Ford in ‘76 and running and beating Carter by a landslide in ‘80. you got to realize that Sarah Palin is a great fan of Ronald Reagan, and has studied how he set about winning in 1980.
“Otherwise she would be touring and speaking overseas.”
How many past presidents have you seen prepare for their run by touring and speaking overseas?
Honestly, I find her presentation to be kind of like Con-Doleeza Rice’s. I mean, it’s fine and all, but there’s a certain catch, a certain lack of smoothness, that I think is going to make it hard for her to take on a certain serpentine politician that must be defeated.
OTOH, the bad news is, the 2012 elections are not that far away, and from what I can see, we got NUTHIN. NUTHIN!
You make my point.
Reagan: Movie star, then Governor, then POTUS.
Sarah: Mayor, Governor, Journalist, then POTUS?
Doesn’t make sense to me.
Where do you come off coming up with this crazy stuff?
I love Condy. I’d vote for her in a second. :)
It also gives people who have come over to our side a chance to see her in a much different light then they were use to....
Doesnt make sense to me
More like Reagan: Movie star, then Governor, Failed Presidential Candidate In The Primaries, Radio Personality For Four years, then POTUS
Sarah: Mayor, Governor, Journalist, Losing VP Candidate, TV personality for 4 years, then POTUS (if she runs).
Where is the problem here?.
