The Gong Show
Spencerblog happened to catch George Bush's appearance on "Deal or No Deal." (The Phillies game hadn't started yet.) In cheering on a decorated Iraq War vet, the president was self-deprecating and well-received. Other pols have been smart to do the same sort of thing. Expect more of it.
But when they start making appearances on "Flip This House" expect a backlash.
