The need for fresh faces in action heroes and politicians



We went off the cuff on the need for fresh faces in our action heroes and politicians, as William Garcia joined La Crosse Talk PM on Friday.

La Crosse Talk PM airs weekdays at 5:06 p.m. Listen on the WIZM app, online here, or on 92.3 FM / 1410 AM / 106.7 FM (north of Onalaska). Find all the podcasts here or subscribe to La Crosse Talk PM wherever you get your podcasts.

After ranting a bit with Garcia, Garcia is the Democratic Party chair of La Crosse County and the 3rd US House District, about what Wisconsin Republicans are trying to pull off with impeaching a newly elected state Supreme Court justice, we dove into a real dilemma.

The conversation began after bringing up that 83-year-old Nancy Pelosi is running for re-election in the US House.

And, while we seemingly have geriatric representation in our government, from the episodes of 81-year-old Mitch McConnell and 90-year-old Dianne Feinstein — not to mention who’s running for president — we may have an even worse problem in the action hero department.

Tom Cruise (61), Denzel Washington (68), Harrison Ford (81) — all three of these are or were starring in action movies in theaters in the last month.

    I don’t believe there should be an age restriction for politicians, because life experience is more valuable than education. However I do believe there should be a cognitive test requirement. The brain is more valuable to those that lead, than the body. As far as action figures, I’m not surprised that Hollywood turns to men , that although beyond their prime, still represent honor, decency and a healthy dose of testosterone. I for one am not ready for a “drag queen super hero”. Long live Ton Cruise!
