John McCain: GE & NBC Get Their Beak's Wet by Obama Campaign

The politics of change and serious folding money.

The Obama Campaign bundled $5M in cash to pay for ads that will run during the NBC Olympic Coverage 2008.

Here in Chicago we call that 'making a drop.' Quid Pro(the Stuff That WE Do For You!) Quo.

This from Not Your Sweetie

Obama Makes $5 Million Buy
In the first significant network-TV buy of any presidential candidate in at least 16 years, the Obama campaign has taken a $5 million package of Olympics spots that includes network TV as well as cable

And isn’t it symbolic:

The Obama campaign will join major advertisers including McDonald’s and Anheuser-Busch.

Well, I always thought GE and Bo had a deal as of last year when Obama dissed Fox. Now they get paid for their enthusiastic surrogacy. There’s one more humorous note:

Bob Dole’s 1996 buy
The last network TV spot bought by a presidential contender was apparently a single multi-minute ad run by Republican Sen. Bob Dole in 1996.

Oh, that went well!

That's why Keith 'Bathtub Bubble Biter Boy' and Chris 'Tingle Thighs' Matthews get all Tiger Beat for Kid Hope. Kid Hope and Jesse Jackson ( Chicago's King of Beers) will share time in the sponsor's box, mayhaps? Watch your goodies, Senator!

McCain gets face time next to the Velveeta Cheese displays. Well, I love nice grilled Velveeta Cheese & red onion Sammy.

You are so right Mistah Pat and as always "oh so funny." I read an article yesterday where Andrea Mitchell pointed out how Obama "created his on press coverage in the Middle East because it was too dangerous for the actual press to follow his every(waiting on baited breath)Michael Jackson Thriller moment. I am so sick of this crap with Fauxbama and "oh yeah" what happened to the I will meet John McCain anytime anywhere for a debate? The spineless bastard "oh I know" he would have to share the spotlight, that's it I'm sure. It couldn't possibly be that Mac would wipe the floor with him could it? Yeah he has that media technique down to an art; but then he had a great teacher because there is noone who can milk the media or manipulate it like Obama MasterPuppeteers Oprah Winfrey and Good Old Octopussy George Soros. That is how he is getting all of the love from the media that and all of those idiots from Hollywood and Music Row. After all we should all trust their judgement right?, because their thinking is so clear from their recent stints in Rehab? "Oh BTW" I heard from a very reliable source that Chris "Milky" Matthews is running for the senate in 2010. Isn't that laughable all in itself?
