Barack Obama Advertising in the...New York Post?
We knew that Barack Obama believes in hope and considers himself an endless optimist.
But is he so over the top optimistic that he's actually advertising in the New York Post?

Here's a banner ad we came across on the Post website yesterday afternoon.
Back in 2008, there were days when you couldn't avoid an Obama for America ad on many a news website. There was that night when OFA bought out a half hour on just about every network, and the time when Obama set up his own satellite channel.
But we never recall him advertising in the Post before.
What's going on here? Is he still that emphatic a believer in hope that he thinks he can woo over an Andrea Peyser fan?
Full of hubris?
Or, just trying to fuel conspiracy theories that he's trying to keep Rupert Murdoch afloat in a tough economy?
