Obama buying TV time

Obama buying TV time October 9, 2008

So, this is what flip-flopping on sticking to public campaign funding will get you: enough money to buy 1/2 hour chunks of tv air time, just before an election. Wow. Good thing there’s no fairness doctrine yet, eh?

This once again proves my point that Obama and his campaign are bad strategists…or perhaps it proves John McCain’s point that Obama doesn’t know the difference between a strategy and a tactic. Because if Obama was REALLY smart, he’d forget the networks that no one watches and buy a solid hour of time right behind the Project Runway finale, next week.

Because fashion knows no ideological boundary!

I like Hot Air’s take on it, ala “The Outer Limits”: They control the signal. Yeah, the vertical hold, too. But the fine-tuning….still off.

And c’mon…you don’t do this if you really and truly are looking at a “landslide.”

Meanwhile – here’s something that I said shoulda happened two years ago: Boehner declares war on ACORN. Well that’s very nice. A little late to the game, guys….

Also, via Instapundit, Jeff Jarvis says the press is responsible for its own downfall. He’s quite right. He also writes:

A Gallup survey says 52 percent of Americans do not trust news media, up from 30 percent in 1972.

I’d suggest our distrust is much higher than that, at this point.
