Has your life been empty since November 4 when the Dish Network ceased broadcasting all Obama all the time on Channel 73? Not to worry. Comcast is about to fulfill all the spiritual yearnings of you Barack Obama acolytes by broadcasting all Obama all the time leading into the inauguration so you won't have a minute of your day or night alone without The One as reported by Michael Calderone at Politico:
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."
One wonders if the Rod Blagojevich wiretap tapes will be included in the broadcasts. But what to do after the inauguration? Don't worry, Obama fans. There is another adulatory Obama channel already operating called MSNBC where you can always get that thrill running up your leg at the mere mention of His name. From Chris to Keith to Rachel, MSNBC will never let you down in the Obama worship department.
For the more heretical of us, there are these skeptical remarks from the "unenlightened" commenters at the Politico site:
Try having the Obama channel programming highlight his greatest accomplishments. Then Day 2 the channel will cease to exist.
I voted for Barak and would not hesitate to do so again but do we need 24/7 coverage. What's next, Sainthood??
and eBay is auctioning lint from his toes -- watch out for the stampede headed to bid !
the liberal media love affair with obama continues.... it should be called the kool-aid network.
Liberals get your popcorn and your tin foil hats, the Obama nation show begins.
And don't forget to provide copious quantities of Kool-Aid to wash down that popcorn while watching the coronation/inauguration.
