Why go to New Mexico tomorrow to make the announcement, though (more of Richardson’s territory)? Maybe he's going to pander for the Indian vote. Oops, almost forgot. He's Indian now that a Crow family adopted him, so I don't think it is considered pandering.

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!

I didn’t notice all the typos until someone pointed it out. However if the font is different something MAY be funny.

This is the kind of thing that isn’t supposed to happen.

Obama can't control his aides, can't control the Clintons, can't control his pastor, can't control his wife. . .

What can he control?

Look at the URL

.vp

CNN ends all their other stories with

I’ve never seen a dot toward the end of a URL like that

Watching CNN the other night while they were reviewing the Saddlebrook non-debate, and across the Teleprompter at the bottom came this “Obama campaign says they will reveal the VP choice via email and text messages. Look for an email with subject line (yada yada). No other campaign has ever done this before. Obama is running the most high tech campaign ever.” I nearly hurled. Oh, yeah, nobody ever thought about email before. He’s the first! Ain’t he the most brilliant ever? ooOOOoooo. So high tech. And CNN? No way are they biased to print that crap. /s

Wow. I just read Sarah Palin’s profile on wikipedia. It made my knees weak...

Yes, she looks great but is unfortunately in the middle of this silly mess which probably won't amount to much in the long term but will probably scare the McCain people off. I think our best hope is that she weathers this and is ready for 2012 because I'm hoping that McCain wins and then doesn't run for re-election, leaving a spot open on the ticket for her or Jindal.

Evan Bayh was separated at birth from his twin/clone, Al Gore. Went on to marry a freckly blonde cheerleader type woman who could be Tipper’s sister. Boring, monotone voice (let’s hear you say “risky scheme” like Al, Evan) and a liberal wolf in centrist sheep clothing.

Yes, as I recall, Birch was one of the prime movers of the Gun Control Act of 1968, which required the registration of all ammunition sold, even 22 shorts. Great law! /s

Eye roll. How do YOU spell dull? B-A-Y-H works for me. Well, as I said in my blog, it’s one way to get rid of the freakin’ Bayhs (who have infected this state for the past four decades). Maybe they’ll take Dan Burton off our hands, too.

As a web page designer.. most people don’t add random dots.

You have dot.com

.org

or .net

but .vp?

Everytime you add a page it normally goes like that

/evanbayh

/evanbayhvppage1

and so on...

I’m starting to think this is a fake

They would not end a story with .VP

When Birch Bayh was defeated by Dan Quayle, the campaign saying was Bye, Bye, Bayh.

At least I think it looks like a slightly different font.

Here is another article form Election Center.

http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2008/07/31/obama-mccain-spar-over-celeb-ad/

I looked for matching words like “campaign” and the “g”s look diff (i.e. flat vs. curved bottom). But I am not expert...and my eyesight sucks.

Dunno.

Here's more from Shots on the House:

Could it be a hoax? Could CNN have dropped the story from their website because it was bad reporting and it could not be confirmed? Was Barack Obama’s aide simply sending a test e-mail to a few people and sent it to the wrong mailing list? Either way, here’s what a CNN story that has since been pulled said about Barack’s VP pick:

The entire screenshot has been uploaded online, and this whole thing was caught by Matt from The ACT Blog who showed me the screenshot before CNN either caught their mistake or did a favor for the Obama campaign (as if their coverage wasn’t favorable enough). I’m also hearing rumors the screenshot was doctored (Matt got it from someone else). If I was a betting man right now though, I’d say Bayh, but maybe it was a mistake. We’ll see.
