Primetime Obama

Tonight Barack Obama will speak to America through a thirty minute advertisement simulcast on several networks.

The campaign has said it will consist of "everyday Americans" talking about their troubles with a cut-in to Obama outlining his solutions. The infomercial will then go to a live rally in Florida with Barack Obama addressing the crowd, possibly alongside President Clinton.

CBS, NBC, Fox, MSNBC, Univision and BET will all run the program. Surprisingly, CNN took a pass and stated the network would rather maintain objectivity in its' reporting; notice how MSNBC snapped at the opportunity to run the half hour lovefest.
Fox News Channel has confirmed it was never approached by Obama's staff.

As if thirty consecutive minutes of empty promises and frivolous rhetoric was not enough today, the Messiah will appear on other venues as well.

Prior to his infomercial, he will be interviewed on ABC's "World News" with Charles Gibson. I hope Charlie will ask him to define the Bush Doctrine but I won't hold my breath.

To finalize his media blitz, he will appear on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart following his rally in Florida.

I think Barack's daughter put it best earlier this week:

"Are you going to interrupt my TV?"

For those of us seeking refuge from Obama's unrelenting "in your face" style politics, John McCain will be on CNN's Larry King tonight.

And as always, God bless the Fox News Channel.
