The Biggest Loser

Jennifer Harper notes in her Washinton Times column today that Obama plans to turn his December 2nd speech into a, well, I cannot improve on Jennifer:
OBAMARAMA
Television is sure to be a dither-free zone at 8 p.m. Tuesday night. President Obama will have a monumental stage at West Point and exquisitely selective words at the ready when he delivers his long-awaited Afghanistan policy speech, aka "the Obama off-ramp" in select circles. The "big three" broadcast networks are not their usual compliant selves, however.

CBS has set aside just 30 minutes for the speech, to be followed by re-runs and their annual offering, "The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show," where models wander the runway in angel wings and high-priced undergarments. ABC is giving the speech an hour, bumping "A Charlie Brown Christmas" while NBC will broadcast the speech, followed by two hours of "The Biggest Loser."

It's a bonanza for cable news channels. CNN's "Decision Afghanistan" offers almost 12 hours of material - the live speech followed by analysis by Wolf Blitzer, John King, Anderson Cooper and others.

"We're harnessing out global resources," Mr. Blitzer says.

MSNBC offers the live speech followed by specials showcasing Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow and Chris Matthews.Fox News will offer similar fare with the speech, followed by six hours of special analysis anchored by Bill O'Reilly and Greta Van Susteren.

.."followed by two hours of 'The Biggest Loser.'"

That's rich! A special on Obama's presidency?

OBLIGATORY DIG AT THE POSOTUS NARCISSISM: This clown dilly-dallies for over four months while flouncing off to Copenhagen, promoting failed Democrat gubernatorial candidates, flapping his lips about health care while the economy tanks, boogies in the White House with all kinds of Hollywood trash and party crashers, and can't seem to make up his mind on military policy until now? And then he turns it into yet another photo-op with the troops? Maybe he'll do a chest-bump with some of the cadets.

I am so-o-o-o over this guy.
