We have always known that President Barack Obama knew how to rock and/or roll. Haven’t you seen his dance moves?
Which only leads us into the one real question regarding politics and swingin’ hips: Does Jon Bon Jovi know how to govern small nonprofits and businesses to work more efficiently to solve specific community needs?
What. You’ve never asked that question? You should be ashamed of yourself. As of today, [lastfm link_type="similar_artist_radio"]Bon Jovi [/lastfm]has signed on to join the panel for the White House Council for Community Solutions.
As long as their slogan isn’t “Wanted Dead or Alive”, we don’t really see a problem with this.
That is, unless Bon Jovi changes the National Anthem to “You Give Love A Bad Name.” Then we may have a mess on our hands.
Some may turn a cock-eyed look to the rocker-gone-polititian. After all, when was the last time we had someone on the advisory council who used to tease their hair two-feet tall?
Bon Jovi is well-known Democratic Party supporter. He performed at Obama’s inaugural concert after all, showing his support by shouting things like “… on a steel horse I ride” into Obama’s face.
Then again, Mr. Jovi may actually know what he’s doing. After all, he started the Jon Bon Jovi Foundation, which has been around for quite some time now helping to fight homelessness. According to Bon Jovi’s spokeswoman, the foundation had contributed to over 250 affordable housing units, giving low-income individuals places to live and raise their families. Not too shabby.
While you may think employing a celebrity to serve on presidential commissions is an odd turn of affairs, know that Sarah Jessica Parker is on the President’s Committee of the Arts and Humanities. Remember when she made Sex And The City the official movie of New York? That turned out for the best! Shoe prices became so cheap!
Looks like we’re still in good hands.
