Celebrity-in-Chief

I also saw this in USA TODAY:

On Jan. 14, Marvel Comics is releasing a special issue of Amazing Spider-Man #583 with Obama depicted on the cover. Inside are five pages of the two teaming up and even a fist-bump between Spidey and the new president.



Has there been any precedent for this love-fest?

Answer to your question: NO.
And the press is so biased that it just irritates me no end! This past week there was an article on NYTimes.com about this:

Gov. Bill Richardson of New Mexico has withdrawn his name as the commerce secretary nominee because of an investigation and President-elect Barack Obama has accepted, NBC News and
The Associated Press reported. According to The A.P., a federal grand jury is investigating how a California company that contributed to Mr. Richardson's political activities won
a lucrative New Mexico state contract.

I did not hear ONE word about this on any news show. Because if they don't talk about it that means it really isn't happening!!
Now anytime the Bush admini. had the least bit of drama, the news outlets discussed it for days. Excuse me while I rant. . .

Your rants are welcome here!

I just wonder how long the love-fest can go on. We're America, we build you up then we take you down.

How long will the media protect him? We're going on 2 years now.

I just hope Palin is in the issue as well and kicks both their asses.
