Not a joke: President Obama doing interview with Ryan Seacrest

Because after appearing on the cover of American Dog, President Obama is still finding new and even more superficial media outlets to waste his valuable time on further diluting that vaunted “Obama brand”:

The administration’s last-minute push to turn out the vote is spurring some unconventional media outreach efforts. But none of them have been quite as unlikely as that announced on Monday — President Obama will be doing an interview with Ryan Seacrest. The “American Idol” co-host will be talking to Obama on Election Day for a segment on his radio show, ‘On Air with Ryan Seacrest.’ And in a Facebook post, he put out a solicitation for questions.

Has the President actually listened to Seacrest’s radio show? I have but a passing familiarity with it, and ZOMGosh! I totally hope that Seacrest asks Obama what he thinks of that one time Taylor Swift dated that guy from Twilight and then wrote a song about it! I regularly scoff at the perennial claims that the youth vote is taking its political responsibility seriously, and even I don’t think they’re going to be impressed by such brazen pandering.
