Obama VP Pick Countdown

On August 18, 2008 By

Getting close. Expected by Wednesday. You can be the first to know (I’m getting a text message, are you?). The NYT is reporting it is now down to 3: Senator Evan Bayh of Indiana, Gov. Tim Kaine of Virginia and Senator Joseph R. Biden Jr. of Delaware.

At first I thought they were talking about a rightwing blogger with pseudonym gordon gekko, but they were talking about Barack Obama. Great response by Brian Deese (again) to the tax scare tactics. “Another Friday. Another lying, distorting attack ad from the McCain campaign on taxes”. LOL. Brilliant!
