Biggest Super Bowl Losers

First, congrats to the Saints and, yes, to the Colts and even the NFL as well. It was an excellent and engaging football game. Even the refs did good.

BUT, there were big losers on Super Sunday:

1. President Obama – I think the main thing he accomplished with his llllong appearance during the pre-game, with his lecturing and lecturing us about healthcare, was to annoy people. He clearly doesn’t get it that there is a time and a place for such politicking, and the Super Bowl ain’t it.

2. CBS – did not help their reputation with that Obama infomercial.

3. The taxpayers – got to watch their money go down the drain with the Census ads. The $2.5 million spent is only the tip of the iceberg of an ad campaign project to cost over $300 million.

4. – Who the heck is so offensively stupid as to give their company the same name as the infamous Soviet secret police? Gee, I think I’ll start a texting service and name it or better yet, Idiots!

If you think I am missing some big losers, feel free to chime in with a comment.

MORE: There are numerous reports that kgb was very slow to respond to questions. I’ve seen two reports that their servers failed. Losers.

I have to defend the Census ads because I have to wade through the paperwork that are the Census lawsuits from cities that say they were undercounted and that the Census didn't do enough. The Census has been sued several times over several years and the ads may actually save money and win the next lawsuit NYC throws at the Department of Commerce.
