Sorry, it seems the only place I can escape from Obamania is the Internet. Sad, right? I’m trying to watch the Ravens-Steelers but CBS is advertising the hell out of the Presidential Inauguration. Where was this advertising four years ago? Eight years ago? Twelve? Sixteen? Twenty? And so on and so forth. The way it’s being flaunted about, one would think we were coronating a king and not inagurating a President.
So I thought not watching the news would help. Well, I don’t watch the news anyway but thought, worse come to worst, I’d only be limited to hearing about the coronation in ads. So when I was watching the NFC Championship game, I only heard about the coronation in short 10 second clips. Clips that bragged about how FOX news is the number one source for coverage. Nothing too horrible.
Then the AFC Championship comes on CBS. They don’t just advertise their coverage of the coronation. They use his campaign slogans when they brag about their TV line-up, have their logo redesigned to look like the one our future President used on the campaign trails. Then at halftime, renowned liberal Katie Couric shows up to talk about the coronation at halftime. There is just no escaping this!
So I turned the game off. I can watch the play by play on NFL.com. Or just ignore the game completely and watch something else.
