(CHICAGO) As Barack Obamas presidential campaign shifts into panic mode, Obama has reopened secret talks to become the principle spokesperson for Heinz products, pending the outcome of this years presidential election.
According to a source close to his campaign, Obama had been approached in early May by the Heinz Corporation shortly after he made his legendary jingle-worthy gaffe on the campaign trail in Oregon: [W]eve traveled to every corner of the United States. Ive now been in 57 states.
His verbal fumble is reminiscent of The Heinz Corporations world famous slogan, 57 Varieties, which the company has used continuously since 1892.
Although Obama turned down the original contract, he approached a representative of Heinz as early as yesterday to see if the offer was still on the table. Recent events have apparently caused Obama to rethink his options.
According to sources, Obama and his inner circle were literally blown off their pedestal of confidence by what insiders call Hurricane Palin, their euphemism for Gov. Sarah Palin, Sen. John McCains pick for his running mate.
We dont know how to run against her, said Alton Braddock, a self-described Obama insider. Shes wack.
Meanwhile, Obama, who later made light of his 57-state mistake, is said to be mulling signing the contract on election day.
The Heinz company was founded by Henry Heinz in Sharpsburg, Pennsylvania in 1869.
Teresa can share her raisin recipe with Michelle. I have a feeling Barak’s wife will need it come November.
Does Heinz hire community organizers?
So now it’s:
Barry Hussein Osama Soetoro...Heinz-Kerry?
Makes the arugula that more befitting.
Did anyone else see her hanging all over Michele Obama hugging etc..?
Ok this person has lost HER MARBLES completely.
I believe it was pointed out earlier that the 57 states might have been a Freudian slip. There ARE 57 member states in the Organisation of the Islamic Conference.
I tried to comment over on your blog, but comments were closed. Very clever. Seriesly. May I excerpt you over at my blog? (I’m doing a bit on humor and intelligence.)
Queen1—Not ready for the presidency, but ready to be called HRH.
Yes you certainly may. Wonder why my comments weren’t working. I’ll look into it.
