obama-this-200.jpgBlog Guy, I just don’t see how candidates pay for campaigns these days. It’s so expensive!

Well, as you know I get most of my news from seeing photos and guessing what’s going on. But it looks to me like they’re getting into product endorsements.

This scene has the feel of a classic infomercial, where the woman tells Barack Obama this gizmo can prevent decay.

Coming tomorrow: John McCain demonstrates his George Foreman Grill…
