Not me. But I expect some of the hard-core political junkies here will be. If not, why not? 8-)

Schitt's Creek will be on around that time and that's a more productive use of my time.

Btw, if you haven't seen Schitt's Creek, you are missing out. It truly is Canada's finest. :coffee:
Seasons 1-3 are on Netflix.

In CBC's sitcom "Schitt's Creek," a wealthy couple -- video store magnate Johnny and his soap opera star wife Moira -- suddenly find themselves completely broke. With only one remaining asset, a small town called Schitt's Creek, which the Roses bought years earlier as a joke, this once-wealthy couple must give up life as they know it. With their two spoiled children in tow and their pampered lives behind them, the Rose family is forced to face their newfound poverty head-on and come together as a family to survive.

Tried to watch the first few when it came out and the title was befitting. :thumbdown:

Yes I'll be watching. It's the pre-game to the CNN/MSNBC meltdown that will follow. :nod:

I'm a fan of good marketing, but the choice of that title is too gimmicky. Fuck them.

Same. Last one I may have watched all the way through was early in W's Presidency. Polarization has made these things unwatchable for the average voter and now they just cater to the frothy-mouth partisans. It's just become bad theater.

I specifically remember the last one I watched: Billy Jeff Clinton in ‘96 or so, before impeachment, when he said “the era of big government is over.” I never laughed so hard at a political speech before or since, except maybe Drumpf’s inaugural address.

I dunno, there was that one speech/press conference W gave sometime after 9/11, and he was describing how ordinary people could help spot and foil another terrorist attack, where he had a line that was something like, "if you see someone you don't know jumping into your crop duster, give us a call." We can still find uses for that comedic gem today.

Watched about 10 minutes of Obomba's first one....my 11-year old daughter was sitting there listening and after about 10 minutes turned to my wife and I and said "there's no way he can do all those things he's promising!"

Figured that if an 11-year-old could figure it out in 10 minutes, the rest of the country has NO excuse.

Shut it off and haven't watched one since.
