Obama Has Chosen!

OBAMA HAS CHOSEN.

ALL HAIL THE VICE MESSIAH.

Obama has just sent me the Holy Text Message and I present to you:

The Official Running Mate and Vice Messiah: Dick The Albino Bowler

The legend began on a crisp October night in 1974, at a small 12-lane alley just outside of Roundlake, Illinois. League night was winding down and, as usual, some of the guys decided to stick around and roll a few games for money. About midway through the first game, the doors swung wide open and a pale figure with a bowling bag stood in the doorway. He walked in slowly, pointed at lanes nine and ten, then sat down to change his shoes.

The locals' games had all but stopped as they gazed at him with curiosity and amusement. They noticed that just above the stranger's breast pocket was a hand-stitched name: Dick. Paying no mind to their low murmurs and stifled laughter, Dick put a brace around his wrist and pulled a gleaming white bowling ball from his bag. He squinted at the lane for a few seconds, then took a slow steady approach and sent the ball speeding toward the pins. The ball rumbled out toward the ten board, drowning out the whispers and chuckles, then slammed back into the pocket with a thunderous crash. As the pins lay scattered, some still spinning from the force, Dick turned back toward the ball return, nodded and smiled.

For the next half hour, the locals were treated to an extraordinary display of bowling virtuosity. They watched in awe as he rolled strikes and picked up spares with an amazing array of shots, all executed with uncanny precision and artistry. He never said a word — he didn't even keep score, and he barely even noticed the spattering of applause when he was finished.

And then he was gone. Before the other bowlers could ask him to join their league he vanished out the door and into the night. Those who were there that night never forgot what they witnessed, and many people have since claimed to have seen his thick sideburns, steely pink eyes and gleaming white ball in some small bowling alley, in some small town on some memorable evening.

Ah, yes...I had a gut feeling all along that Obama was going to select Dick the Albino Bowler.

I mean, how could he not?

I think that Obama is trying to get the conservative humorist vote by giving us copious raw material to work with.

After all the chortling is over, I hope, no pray, that McCain’s campaign is discreet. I fear a backlash ... but it will be funny for the next 24. ;)
