CBS has sold out its commercial inventory for Super Bowl XLIV.

That includes the ad featuring future fourth-round draft pick Tim Tebow that has generated a great deal of interesting debate across the political and religious spectrum.

My take: It's America. Let him say whatever he wants, as long as the ad is paid for and is done in reasonably good taste.

If there is room for an 8 p.m. sitcom on CBS about a guy trying to sleep with seven different strangers in seven nights, why shouldn't there be a place for Tim Tebow and his mother on the network?
