That they picked Danica Patrick’s GoDaddy NASCAR car, with the GoDaddy logos clearly emblazoned, could not have been a coincidence. Great publicity for GoDaddy, and I am glad given how they helped me out during the papal transition.

Not sure how GoDaddy pulled off this coup. I don’t think (but I could be wrong) that my President would just succumb to the charms of a GoDaddy wet T-shirt girl. That would have, of course, worked with Clinton.

So I have to think that some real mulla, in the millions, was involved in this — either as campaign donations in the past or as a direct payment for this priceless ad.

That is what confuses me. I could be wrong. GoDaddy could be an Obama supporter, which would make me very happy.

GoDaddy, in the end, is Bob Parsons company; he being the founder and now the Executive Chairman.

I have never had the honor of directly interacting with Bob.

But, I have had exceptional service and support from his staff in his office. Which is more than I can say about TDS and its CEO’s staff.

When GoDaddy was pulling out all the stops to help me deal with the huge spike in hits I was getting on my pope blog, I was told that Bob had heard about my problem and was personally monitoring my blog to make sure that it was coping with the traffic demands. I was very grateful. I was going to write a thank you note but was told, explicitly, that it would not be necessary.

Bob Parson is a true maverick and I do admire his style and tastes (and what real, hot-blooded male wouldn’t). So, for all I know, he, like so many high-tech moguls, Hollywood megastars and Warren Buffet could be an Obama supporter. That would neat.

Either way, I loved seeing the GoDaddy plug.

I thoroughly enjoyed the President’s speech and that of Conan O’Brien. Very clever. Very funny. This repartee by Conan had me in stitches: “Speaker Boehner and President Obama are still struggling to get along. President Obama and John Boehner are kind of like a blind date between Anderson Cooper and Rachel Maddow. In theory, they understand each other’s positions, but deep down, you know nothing’s ever going to happen“. [In case you don’t get it, they are both gay.]
