You might be on to something there!
Maybe he wants to add some gravitas to the ticket?
Sounds like somebody throwing up to me.
This is the kind of thing that isnt supposed to happen - but, it appears that Obamas VP will be Ind Senator Evan Bayh. This is coming from a premature release of the email which the Obama campaign intended to send out to supporters the morning of the announcement.
CNN reported the leak at this url:
..but that article has since been pulled from the site. However, THIS SCREENSHOT confirms that the article did, in fact, go up a little after 8 PM.
Still waiting for this to be picked up by FOX, Ill report developments as they happen.
UPDATE: Aron Goldman from www.race42008.compointed out that the CNN article contains a couple of typos, suggesting this may be a fake. That is, of course, possible (I didnt take the screenshot myself, so I cant confirm the authenticity of it - though I dont see Bayh as being the person to inspire a rumor mill - but mistakes arent uncommon online, Fox continues to report Obamas speech at the 1904DNC convention.
UPDATE 2: This is via the same source from the original image - but some clippings from the second e-mail:
a technical glitch occurred while updating the e-mail that will be sent to supporters upon the announcement of Sen. Obamas VP
.releasing the name of Indiana Senator Evan Bayh as his Running mate
at this point, the campaign is unwilling to confirm or deny this selection
.asks that all supporters disregard the orginial email as a mistake until any official confirmation is made
I said before that I don’t know if Bayh can flip Indiana. I do know that his family has a long history in the state’s politics and that he’s been elected governor and senator twice. Bayh is hands down the most popular Democrat in the state.
He makes Indiana close, but I still think McCain takes it.
Obama might be letting it out early so FreeRepublic can do the job of vetting him.
So this isn’t a hoax?
Or how about - Bayh-Bayh Obama
Typos and font does look different than other articles on their Election Center 2008 articles.
I believe that Evan is the son of Birch Bayh, one of the most rabid anti-Second Amendment Senators of all time. Great choice Barry!
So does this ticket make the DemocRATik Party the 75% “white” party? Where’s Howie! We need some clarification here! AAAAARRRRRGGGGHHHHHH!!!!!
Technical glitch = DUmmie libtard pushes the wrong button.
And this guy wants us to trust him with the nuclear football?
I didn’t notice all the typos until someone pointed it out. However if the font is different something MAY be funny.
