Week 80 Spotlight: And now, a word from the President …

Last night, Barack Obama was the first President to go on The Tonight Show while still in office. While it was sold as a historic moment, Joel Murphy and Lars Periwinkle are having trouble understanding why it happened.

Between his Tonight Show appearance and the countless press conferences and prime-time preemptions, President Obama has been all over television lately. Joel and Lars can’t help at times but feel like the President is acting more like a celebrity on a press tour than the most powerful man in the entire world. This week, they try to figure out why Obama has been on TV talking about his bowling score and his NCAA picks instead of fixing the country.

Can they discuss the President’s actions without getting overly political? How does South Park tie in to this week’s Batman discussion? What happened to the song of the week? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.
