Can Obama make that claim?


Updated infomercial poster discovered at Newsbusters tonight

No, I didn’t bother to watch Obama’s infomercial last night. I was at dinner celebrating the news that my son and daughter-in-law are going to have a baby girl this time! My first little granddaughter. Why would I bother watching the guy who couldn’t even tell the difference between Fred Sanford and George Jefferson try to shine on the American people one more time.

As the daughter and granddaughter of drycleaner and antique shop owners our families loved Sanford and Son and The Jeffersons. That Obama couldn’t even get that little piece of American pop culture right makes one wonder what exactly was he doing back then? Boy, my Dad loved Fred, Lamont and George.

From what I have heard the Obama show was a sort of folksy, Ken Burns-like downer. Definitely not a Morning in America uplifting type of feel good production.

The only infomercial I really like is Sham Wow.

And that only takes three freakin minutes out of our lives.

Besides, it’s fun. I remember the dialogue. I can see the experiment working. And I do like stuff that’s made in Germany. When I was talking about the new art project we are doing in school of which the theme is “Wow” one of my students, said he was going to make his art project all about Sham Wow and he proceeded to do it.
