Comcast launches all-Obama channel
Politico ^

Posted on 01/13/2009 11:22:27 PM PST by indcons

Do you need Obama coverage 24 hours a day? In several markets, Comcast cable is launching an all-Obama, On Demand channel. (In D.C., it's channel 963).

Leading up to Inauguration, the channel will offer a number of Obama-related programs, according to a release: "Barack Obama’s most famous speeches to date, from his keynote address at the Democratic National Convention in 2004 through his election night victory speech in Grant Park; Barack Obama biography; Michelle Obama’s 2008 Democratic National Convention speech; a tour of the White House; and the history of Air Force One."

Ann Coulter is right. The MSM does want to have sex with Obama.

The stuff spewing out of the TV and newspapers is what Jim Jones could only dream about.

It's a virtual test pattern, watched by the brain-dead. i.e. Obama lovers. Wheras CNN....nevermind.

He has to keep hyping his minions. He has to be able to tell them how bad off they are, so he can then turn around and offer then hope, then get them to do his bidding. He is counting on them to help him get all the stuff he wants through congress etc.

We republicans go about doing our own thing, failing to organize. Trying to herd a bunch of republicans into a corral so they can act together effectively is like herding cats. The only thing we will end up doing together is going down together.

No, He is not my "GOD." I do not worship a corrupt politician.

Nor will I bow down to a manifestation of the beast and his image.

Some experts have stated that Obama uses NLP techniques (Neuro Linguistic Progamming) to ‘sell’ his ‘message’ via unethical means. NLP is also used by unethical lawyers, salespeople and carnival hypnotists - yes it really is a form of mental suggestion (hypnosis) that can powerfully influence some people. ANd this is why some people faint, cry, swoon etc. at his speeches while, to the rest of us, his speeches lack content or logic. I do wonder if that is why some otherwise respected media types (conservative) seemed to gush about him (i.e. Noonan?) For NLP to work, it requires a slow pace and repetition and that is what Obama is getting with his own channel. *shudder*

Bring your camera, because they have a presidential podium, a replica of the Oval Office, and several Obama cardboard cutouts for your posing pleasure. (When I asked, the staff kindly photographed me looking studious behind the Oval Office desk).

I came looking for stocking stuffers for my Obamaphile friends.  I walked out with a nice inaugural golf towel, a couple festive White House postcards, and an Obama action figure (You can make him point dramatically).

The tchotchkes weren't quite as tacky or funny as I'd hoped. There were no velvet paintings or irreverant slogans that you might find at online shops like Cafe Press. However, the store did sell Obama bobbleheads, Obama hot sauce, playing cards, and buttons the size of plates.  And of course the usual magnets, mugs, and first family t-shirts (yes, some of the shirts even depict Malia and Sasha),

For such a flag-draped ultra-patriotic store, though, there were an awful lot of knick-knacks with "Made in China/Vietnam/etc." labels. Oh well.

BTW, this is a private shop with no connection to the Obama administration or the official inauguration committee.

Cool  (7)

I really really want an Obama Bobblehead!

Obama is such an empty suit that even the corrupt media will not be able to pretend for long that Obama knows squat about anything. Disillusion will be huge. They’ll blame Bush.

This so reminds me of Cuba and Venezuela where it is all Castro all the time and all Chubby all the time.

Nice to see Obama is following in the footsteps of his mentors.

Wonder if his speeches will start going 4, 5, 6 hours long? Will he break out his Che t-shirts?

I thought we just had 18 months of this courtesy of the MSM. In a perverse way this is a good thing because the expectations of the average citizen are so unrealistically high at this point. The word schadenfreude comes to mind.

Somewhere there’s a “niche” that the rest of us fit in that neither gush, swoon or cry even over people that we are very enthusiastic about. Conservatives will enumerate where they disagree with their favorite president, congressman, mayor, Chief of Police, etc., and yet still support those same folks.

In short, we don’t “worship” men nor think of them as some sort of god (small “g”) and we recognize that fallen men are just that and that there will always be a time in which they fail in some way or another. I think that “niche” would be the Judeo-Christian ethic.

Do you think the media in North Korea, Syria, Iran, former Iraq, China and other despot-worshipiing nations- are all stupid?

Media can be made to cooperate, even to respect and enjoy their role a as mouthpiece of the state, and see it as their patriotic duty to cooperate in brainwashing the peasants for the sake of unity.

I used to think it could never happen here. Look at the election results we just had.

Glad I’m immune, then. I never heard anything of substance in the stump speeches I listened to or read excerpts of. I could never see past the slick PR package and the fact that the media was campaigning 24/7 for him made me suspicious.

All the 0 makes me want to do is what that cat is doing in reply #12.

So who’s the sponsor? Somebody has to support this. If they put a commercial up there, then that’s a VERY easy product to do without.

and this is why he needs the channel - to keep them under the spell - else they might wake up. It's rather like the mind control of the 5 x's a day call to prayer where the muzzies have to play stink bug, with their noses on the ground and butts in the air, to keep the mind-control from being broken...

Question: they will try to put the Fairness Doctrine in place again - SO, will that mean that republicans will also get their own channel??? (right)
