That's rich, coming from a Minnesotan.
The dial never deviates from TCM, AMC or Ovation anymore in my house simply because that droning, air-time-hogging egomaniac is so overexposed and those are the only spots on the channel lineup the general public can find any real refuge anymore.
I had to chuckle at those ladies' comments in that restaurant, because it just may be that the much vaunted 'racial reconciliation' for which Obama was supposed to serve as the Great Half-White Hope to achieve may indeed come about, not from anything Barack Obama or his crooked race-hustling cronies at ACORN eventually do, but because of Robert Osborne at Turner Classic Movies! And Cary Grant could very well be someday considered by future historians as the MLK of cable TV - who would have ever imagined that?
So it would seem that Americans are much more alike than our compulsively racist & self-servingly divisive politicians on the left wing ever give us credit for. The pronounced distaste for being held captive to self-centered politicians infatuated with the sound of their own voice - and the sycophantic shills in the Fourth Estate who debase themselves to serve those narcissistic politicians' egomania - seems to be one of those universal human attributes which truly does transcend melanin.
I would dearly love to know just how well TCM's ratings have been faring since November of last year.

Alas, as an Iowan by choice, I think you are correct. These otherwise normal, decent, hard-working people were just crazy for him.
