Bush and his hopeful successors shill themselves all over the airwaves tonight

SHARE Bush and his hopeful successors shill themselves all over the airwaves tonight

‘Twas the night before the Pennsylvania primary, and all over TV were presidential candidates and even the president himself denigrating their station by pandering to google-eyed couch potatoes.

Everywhere you surfed tonight, there they were on CNN, on Fox, on “Deal or No Deal,” even the WWE.

President Bush is happy to be anywhere with good ratings.

President Bush dropped in via a prerecorded video statement to NBC’s game show “Deal or No Deal” tonight.

Contestant Capt. Joseph Kobes,, a Purple Heart and Bronze Star recipient who has served in Iraq three times, was trying to win enough cash to pay off his parents home. But the dealmaking was briefly halted while Bush surprised Kobes by appearing on a screen to express gratitude for his service and wish him luck in the game.

In the end, as always, this valiant American hero was consumed by greed and wound up blowing a hundred thousand bucks, leaving with $26K. Even in this depressed real estate market, that likely won’t make much of a dent in the folks’ house payment.

Meanwhile, Sens. Clinton, Obama and McCain sent taped messages to be shown during WWE’s Monday night ‘RAW” special.

On the one hand, you can watch these and think, golly, they sure are good sports. On the other, you watch Obama asking us, “Do you smell what Barack is cookin’?” and wow, well, I hope you get the joke. Otherwise, it sounds as stupid as it reads.
