Finally. It’s about time. No, Anderson has not agreed to have my parakeet on the program to do its Larry King impression: “Wichita, you’re on with Suzanne Somers. Go ahead.” I’m referring to the point in the presidential campaign where the candidates bring primetime television down to the level of that guy who hocks his get-rich-quick real estate seminar at 3a.m.

You’ve probably heard by now: Barack “I’ve got so much extra campaign cash that I think I might check out the spa that those AIG executives went to” Obama has bought a half-hour of network airtime at 8p.m. on Wednesday, October 29th. As of this writing he’s made deals with CBS and NBC, with additional networks possible.

On CBS he’ll be pre-empting a show called, “Gary Unmarried.” Yeah, I hadn’t heard of it either. A quick Google search tells me it’s a new sitcom about a guy who has to juggle his busy life….blah, blah, blah…wake me when it’s canceled.

Morning Buzz: Free Falling

And no I’m not talking about the Tom Petty song- (although it’s a good one).

Good morning folks. Another day we wake up to global markets tanking, European markets nose-dived at the open Friday, joining the US and Asia in downward slide this week, and Dow Futures is down. An analyst of ours in London said that we are getting mighty close to the final bottom of all this, and he has no doubt in the next 48 to 72 hours we will find our low. I’m thinking that is good news? Because once you hit rock bottom, you can only go up from there right? Hmmm.

I finally had the guts to look at my 401k this morning, right before I signed onto this blog, and it was not a pretty scene. I think I’ll stick to my plan of avoiding looking for awhile. But I digress.

President Bush is going to make a statement on the economy at 10:25am approx, this as Congressional leaders urge him to meet with the G8 to address the crisis. Secretary Paulson will make a statement 645pet approx. Ali Velshi has his work cut out for himself today big time. We can surely count on him to help us make sense of this tonight. And we will feature a great consumer guest who can try to answer q's on what to do with your money during this time.
