Playing politics with the NFL

Want to talk about a poison pill — don’t be the politician who gets in the way of televised football.

You may recall that the Republicans objected to Obama’s original plan for this speech to have been last night. So it was moved to tonight – the opening night of the NFL season. Hence Obama’s speech was at 7pm.

The White House said the speech would last 42 minutes, plus applause and so on, meaning that the Republican response would risk running into the start of the NFL game.

Let us never say that cultural studies is not valuable work.
