More than 20 percent of American households watched Barack Obama’s 30-minute campaign commercial on Wednesday night, according to preliminary ratings.
The commercial was particularly high-rated in several battleground states. According to Nielsen, 29 percent of households in the Philadelphia media market, 28 percent of households in the West Palm Beach/Ft. Pierce, Fl. media market, and 27.2 percent of households in the Greensboro/High Point/Winston Salem, N.C. media market viewed the ad.
Once again, Obama triumphs while Sen. McGrumpypants and the haters of the GOP are left sputtering ineffectually on the sidelines whining.
Have you ever seen such a bunch of whiners? Wahh Obama has too much money, wahh the media is unfair, wahh Bush is dragging us down, wahh the liberals are sexist against VP Annie Oakley.
If McCain had done a half hour commercial, it would have got beaten in the ratings by a 12-year-old rerun of Matlock. Especially since Matlock himself (the beloved Andy Griffith) has endorsed Obama.
