NatGeo Scores Dream Date With Fantasy Boyfriend

Captain Wonderful & fam will be the subjects of a four month long love-you-mentary set in the White House.

NGT has been in talks with Obama's team since last August - before he won the US presidential election - to secure access to film the world's most famous politician. It last month got the green light, and only last week begun filming inside the White House. It will now film for the rest of the year, through Christmas and until January 2010.

Talking to C21 at Mipcom, NGT's exec VP of editorial and new business development, Maryanne Culpepper, said: "We started talking to the administration before he was elected in August last year, and we got permission last month.

"We did our first shoot last week and I have about five minutes of rushes. It's amazing footage - he goes to New York, then he's having lunch with Bill Clinton, then he's running down the corridor with his dog in the White House. It's fantastic."

Emphasis me. Also, I just threw up a little, in my mouth. The nice thing about finding quotes from events like Mipcom is that these media folks know they're among friends and feel comfortable gushing about their crush on the quarterback.

Sweet Fancy Moses. How many C-batteries has this woman exhausted so far in the course of reviewing footage? And are they tax deductible?

The documentary show is expected to air in November of 2010. On PBS. So you can fairly assume taxpayers are footing the cost. Nice.

Though the lefty media's affair with Obama is galling as ever, who knows what effect it will have going forward.

Even most of those who support Barack Obama are not tuning in to soak up his every syllable and gesture anymore.
First of all, they're adults and no longer draw hearts in glitter pen on their Trapper-Keepers, for anybody. Second, the guy never shuts up as it is. The market is saturated. Barring unforeseen circumstances, Obama-demand is not poised to spike.

Let's hope the lefty media never wakes up to the fact that the vast majority of Americans are not as enraptured with the Obamas as they are. Keep f*ckin' that chicken, guys.
