"Germany meets the superstar"


July 19, 2008
Categories: Barack Obama

Obama's reception


A German reader emails that it's a riff on the marketing for Deuschland sucht den Superstar, the German version of American Idol and the most popular TV-Show in our country since 2002.

(The translation is "Germany meets the superstar.")

16. Ugh, I hate that term in relation to our nominee
Edited on Sun Jul-20-08 08:04 AM by Marrah_G
Superstar, rockstar...ugh. Makes him sound like American Idol instead of our candidate for President.

I'd cringe at that term no matter who our candidate was.

Not a huge deal, just rubs me the wrong way.
