Old Iowa Gal Selling Her Television Sets Now That They Only Show Obama
In a story that's not quite true but makes for a catchy angle that we're happy to run with, a madcap old lady in Carroll County, Iowa, isselling her television machines, which now only have one channel, Obama Channel. Deloris Nissen, 78, clicks the damn clicker on these machines to try and find her Tuesday night programs, but all she sees is that same Obama in his golden halls or hamburger restaurants, doing god knows what. Enough! Sell them.
Okay, maybe this "Daily Times Herald of Carroll, Iowa" article plays it up a bit much: She's an old lady with three teevees, so she bought an ad (in this same Daily Times Herald, coincidentally, instead of the crosstown rival, Politico) to sell two smaller, older ones. In this ad she wrote "Obama on every channel and station" as her "reason" for selling, language that David Denby would likely categorize as "a brisk, savory salted peanut of Midwestern god-wit," while masturbating.
But still, the old gal really despises this Obama galoot:
In an interview Nissen said she is serious about selling two TVs - and genuine about her disgust with what she believes to be an overexposed president.
"I just got tired of watching him on every channel," Nissen said. "I thought, my gosh, does he ever stay at the White House?"
Nissen, who voted for U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., in the 2008 presidential election, said she could live with seeing Obama come on television to make serious announcements. But he seems to be on all the time, Nissen said.
When the president does appear on a channel she happens to be watching, Nissen said, she quickly turns.
"I have the remote real handy," Nissen said. "I have the batteries. I'm ready for him."
Watch out, Ms. Nissen: when ObamaCare "passes," he may pick you first for the Euthanasia Program!
