This Mother Jones article has some pretty unfortunate examples of advertising and corporate sponsorship run amock, but this one has to be my favorite of the bunch:

Announcing Rumsfeld’s resignation, Bush said, “It’s tough in a time of war, when people see carnage on their Dell television screens.” Dell’s chairman is a major gop donor.

It’s a great metaphor for what the White House has been reduced to – essentially an apparatus of the private sector.
