I do not doubt that many people were disgusted with the never ending ubiquity of the Obamas now invading last night’s Academy Awards. But really, is it a shock?
They invade Late Night Television.
You can’t flip on the evening news without seeing these people.
Even Sesame Street isn’t safe anymore.
The Morning Shows, The Sunday Shows, Every third episode of 60 Minutes.

My Mom grew up in Germany during the Second World War. She was born about eight months before Hitler became Chancellor and was thirteen when Germany mercifully surrendered. Though she doesn’t speak much about that time of her life, she has shared with me a few items.
She told me that each and every citizen of Germany had to have a picture or portrait of Adolf Hitler in their home. She said every town had some Nazi official who would come by door-to-door to make sure your home had the ever present face of the Führer.
The Obamas are kind of like that.
We Americans apparently are not permitted to have an Obama-Free day.
You can’t sit down to the Super Bowl without first having to endure yet another interview with Barack.
So, why should the Oscars be any different?
