Midnight in America

I didn’t waste my time watching it, but “doom and gloom” was how one infomercial professional described Barack Obama’s ad which delayed the start of the World Series by half an hour.

I was about to throw myself through a window because it was depressing.

Even the AP gave Obama a poor review.  It sounds like the money he blew on the expensive infomercial would have been better spent on his aunt.

CBS didn’t like it either.

Without question, the Barack Obama infomercial served as a very slick and powerful recitation of the biggest promises he’s made as a presidential candidate. But the very bigness of his ideas is the problem: he seems blind to the concept his numbers don’t add up.
