My mom called me tonight to tell me about a two hour special on ABC “America United: In Support of Our Troops” that’s on. So I’m tuned in and watching it right now. It’s actually not bad even though I’m not a big fan of half of the celebs performing and doing introductions. *Side Note: Can Pamela Anderson just go away? And do I really have to hear Jessica Simpson butcher the song “These Boots Are Made For Walkin’ ” yet again? Ugh.
Personally I like more of the stories and footage they are showing of the soldiers and their families vs. the performances. The real deal interests me much more than celebrity crap. Though I will say the whole segment with comedian Carlos Mencia was really good. He’s funny and he seemed really genuine with the troops.
Tune in if you haven’t already and I think you can even watch it online at the ABC website too.
