A Costly Olympic Gaffe in PoliticsNo, not that one. This blunder is being committed by BOTH presidential campaigns. Very expensive advertisements telling the U.S. that Barack Obama is either a gifted leader or a big jerk are being shown this Sunday morning on my TV.
2012 calling the masterminds of the Democratic and Republican parties! The Olympics are being shown on at least three channels right now. A large majority of voters have cable, not to mention remote controls. Anybody in the U.S. interested enough in the Games to be watching from what is before 9 a.m. in the Eastern time zone to what is before 6 in Pacific time is going to be switching off all commercial breaks to catch other action. You are wasting your money.
Then again, the sight of pols wasting their own money is kind of refreshing.
