I don't know the words young people today would use to describe MTV, the television network. "Hip" used to fit. "Cutting edge." "Cool."
Whatever it is, it sure isn't "Sarah Jessica Parker."
Yet there she was the other night doing a promo for Barack Obama, inviting all the young people who tune in to MTV to ... join her and Barry for dinner?
Who was the marketing guru who thought that up?
What, Madeleine Albright wasn't available? Nor was Eric Holder? Eric Holder's great-aunt?
Why not Usher? Katy Perry? Beyoncé?
Not available? Are they Mitt Romney supporters?
And don't even get me started on Cruella deVille's appearance, making the same pitch: Hey, how would you like to have the most miserable time of your life? Come join me and the dullest man on the planet for dinner.
I don't know who's calling the shots in the Obama campaign, but whoever it is, he or she ought to be. Shot.
Good grief. Isn't Sarah Jessica Parker a grandma by now?
