Where's That Apple Runner When You Need Her?

This picture is getting a lot of play today.

The back story is that Army Captain Joe Kobes was/is appearing on the television game show "Deal or No Deal" and "The show's producers contacted the White House after learning from Captain Kobes that the president is one of his heroes," White House spokesman Tony Fratto said."

We respect, and commend, Captain Kobes for his service, but have to jump off the bus as to his hero worship.

And, I suspect you know where this is head ...

Yeah, you got it ... The Commander Guy taped a greeting message, played on the show, to surprise the Army Captain

When I first saw the photo this morning, the first thing that came to mind was the classic Apple Computer "1984" Ad (which was redone and used last year to riff on Hillary) ...

Boy, it sure would have been nice to see that woman come jogging on the 'Deal or No Deal" set, winding up a sledgehammer and letting it fly into The Commander Guys' big screen face.

I'll let that dance about my head today, hopefully, drowning out the tsunami of "What If's" coming out of the television talking mannequins on the Pennsylvania Primary
