The Obama Campaign Paid 6 ABC $40,000 for an Ad During the Eagles Monday Night Football Game

President Obama wants to reach you, disgruntled Eagles fans. 

From Yinzer Tim McNulty of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette comes this 6 ABC invoice to the Obama campaign for a 60-second ad during the upcoming Eagles-Saints Monday Night Football game, the night before the election. MNF is obviously an ESPN production, but it will be aired locally on WPVI as well.

The ad looks like it can run anytime between 8:30 and 11:30. But Obama supporters may want to cross their fingers for the former, because the Eagles may very well be down 20 by the fourth quarter.

Obama was unavailable for comment, but I’m hearing that Jason Babin wishes the CIC would stop saying such vile things about Mittens.

    The right to vote and hold office should be strictly limited to those with a proven IQ score over 110.

    Candy…Funny, after all that talk about the occupying “kids” (even though a lot of them were people of all ages, even seniors) interfering with the city hall construction project, you’d think that they’d have actually made progress on said project…Instead its just been a pile of dirt ever since they kicked out the occupiers…Yeah, that must’ve been a real high priority, not the silencing of people who were actually making a point…
    But then again, I wouldn’t expect to have a serious political conversation with someone who makes fun of Andy Reids dead son. Have a nice day.

    So what? Both candidates have raised a lot of money and can run ads whenever they want. I suspect this was posted so the usual racists can have a field day.
