NPR goes SemiObama

Tuesday's Talk of the Nation took a page from the SemiObama playbook to focus on the use of Obama in advertising campaigns, such as the Pepsi & Ben and Jerry's ads.

Tamara Keith, an excellent reporter at KQED radio here in San Francisco, first filed the report for NPR back on January 16. In that report, she describes how IKEA has built a replica of the Oval Office. Talk about Democracy . . .oh wait, that's Socialism . . .

Tuesday's program built on Keith's report and mused about Obama's branding ability when it comes to business (back to Democracy; or is that Capitalism?).
