Obama the Entertainer

November 1, 2008

Per our earlier post expressing the expectation that this campaign was about the electorate wanting to be entertained, it does indeed seem that Big ‘O’ has wrapped it up. The Wall Street Journal says that O’s 30 minute special outgunned the regular programming it replaced by 10%. But if you watch that special you’ll see it isn’t so, well, special. It’s boring. And that’s important.

So the numbers say that O will get about 10% more than MC. Cool. That’ll be something like 46% Obama, 42% McCain. Or so. (Where to the numbers come from: well, check out the blog title.)

Congrats, O.

But it’ll be a boring 4 years, I suppose.
