"No one will delay the World Series with an infomercial when I'm president."
That’s what John McCain said about Barack Obama’s purchase of 30 minutes of TV time tonight to address the nation. Obama’s infomercial will delay the start of the suspended Game Five of the World Series between Philadelphia and Tampa Bay.
Obama is omnipresent, outspending McCain a gazillion to one, leading ABC to suggest the Obama overload could create a backlash:
“Veteran Democratic strategist Hank Sheinkopf warns that there is a danger that Obama could overdo it, that some voters who aren't emotionally committed to Obama could object to having him hijack their television sets. More serious, however, ‘There could be a danger if this is seen as a victory lap,’ Sheinkopf said. ‘That kind of arrogance people won't tolerate.’”
Meanwhile, as reported earlier today, Obama’s lead in the latest Rasmussen and Gallup polls is only 3 points.
