TCJ Seal of Approval: Carrie Underwood!

I have been trying to think of a way to say something about Carrie Underwood on this blog for some time now.  It finally came to me about 3 minutes ago that Ms. Underwood is definitely deserving of the prestigious Conservative Journal Seal of Apporval!

Ever since Carrie Underwood won the 4th season of American Idol, she has accomplished great things in the music industry, as well as in the world.  Her first album, Some Hearts, was certified 7x platinum (That’s shipping over 7 million CDs for those that aren’t hip on the lingo), and produced 4 number 1 singles in a row.  Her smash hit, “Before He Cheats”, became the first country song to sell over 2 million digital downloads.  Her second album, Carnival Ride, has sold nearly 3 million copies and produced 5 number 1 singles, making her one of the only artists in history to have 10 consecutive #1’s.  Also worth noting is her recent win as Entertainer of the Year, joining the ranks of only a handful of females to ever win that top honor.

But the reason she wins this award isn’t for her Grammys, her ACMs, her CMAs, or anything else.  It’s because she’s remained a moral, Christ-like person through the rigors of extreme fame.  Since winning American Idol 4 years ago, I have yet to hear one time about Carrie Underwood getting drunk and wild at the club.  Carrie hasn’t been caught in a sex-tape scandal.  She hasn’t posed nude for any kind of magazine.  She’s remained grounded despite her enormous successes.  Taking a quick glance at the celebrity scene, it’s hard to pick out more than 1 or 2 that rival Carrie in handling their rise to fame well.  It’s truly a testament to Carrie’s faith that she has managed not to stray from the path she was on pre-Idol.  But of course, we can’t leave out her parents, who equally deserve this award for instilling in their daughter such great Christian values.  Maybe they should receive the next Seal of Approval?

TCJ Seal of Approval: Miss California, Carrie Prejean

I am pleased to announce that California’s Carrie Prejean is the latest recipient of The Conservative Journal Seal of Approval!

Ms. Prejean spoke out with her conservative beliefs even though she knew they would be unpopular with gay judge Perez Hilton, which is something not everyone would do.  Not only does she win this award for standing up for what she believes in, but also for how she said it.  She wasn’t rude or condescending, and handled herself very well on the Miss USA stage when answering the question.  The fact that this question more than likely cost her the competition is quite upsetting, but I am still proud of Ms. Prejean for standing up for conservative values and not wavering from what she has known her whole life.  If only more people were like her!

The Conservative Journal Seal of Approval: Barack Obama

That’s right readers, Barack Obama receives The Conservative Journals very first “Seal of Approval” distinction.  Isn’t it ironic that some one who I very rarely have anything at all positive to say about wins the first of these coveted awards?

Anyway, Barack acheived this great honor with his surprisingly quick action regarding the Somali pirates taking Captain Richard Phillips hostage.  Though Barack was not the one that actually gunned down the scallywags, he did OKAY the sniper’s “extermination” of the motley crew.  The shoot out resulted in the death of 3 of the 4 pirates, while the lone survivor suffered serious injuries and is now in custody.  It’s truly a miracle that everyone on the hijacked ship made it alive.  That should teach those swashbucklers to live us alone!

Good job Barack!  Hopefully you can do more things worthy of this honorary distinction.

Thanks for reading!

Also, at the start of this hostage situation, many of us had our doubts on what action our dear Prez would take.  Though I am pleased he got the job done quickly, a cartoon was e-mailed to me during the days of speculation, and I think it’s too clever to not post it.  This is from Dennis “Bones” Evers:

Thankfully, this wasn't the case during the weekend's events.

If you have any cartoons you have made, or some you think are great, please send them in!  I will be sure to post everything that I receive, as long as it’s appropriate.  Of course, I have a very broad sense of what’s appropriate, so it’s probably fine.

Thanks for reading!
