(Politico)   The President likes sports. The President watches sports on ESPN. Let's buy up commercial airtime on ESPN so that we can influence the President with superliminal advertising. What's superliminal? Hey you, buy 400 Abrams tanks   (politico.com) divider line 18

The President of the United States has time for commercials? I don't have time for commercials.

I heard he's a huge Skip Bayless fan.

Yeah, commercials are the perfect time to use the bathroom or order a drone strike.

The order to send Seal Team Six? While he was on the john. Biden gave him some bad Mexican leftovers, so when the consequences hit he had to improvise and brought in a webcam.

That meeting was truly a sober moment in American history.

Those advertisers can DIAF. Sports are one of the few things that I can watch on TV that  aren't being overrun with politics. I want to drink beer, talk smack about the other team and the officials, and cheer on my team. Sports are when I get to turn off the rest of the world.

If they want to reach the president, send him a goddamn letter just like the rest of us mere mortals or send a lobbyist or whatever. Don't try injecting politics into sports.

/lives in Europe and  gets ESPN America, which strips out all the US-only commercials. Most of the commercial time blocks are just ESPN-specific fillers or the occasional Turkish Airlines commercial.

They could always try to sell them off to Saudi Arabia or Egypt again. I am sure they would love some more tanks.

That's gotta be the most awkwardly-worded headlines that I've ever seen.

Bad subby.

I'm sure the president knows how to hit mute during commercials. And I doubt he's just vegged out in front of the TV. He's probably just got it on in the background while he reads.

hey! You try working in one of the best scenes from later simpsons into a fark headline and not have it be awkward (much like the later simpsons)

"The strategist said the ads can't be so obvious that Obama knows he's the intended audience."

So let's write an article and point out a few examples.

How about a commercial with a catchy tune and the lyrics "sknats smarba 004 yub.."?

Muta: Obama doesn't have Tivo?


Seriously. Mrs Clam never watches baseball in real time. Let it spool up on the TiVo and you can zip past all of the Geico ads.
