If anybody else who reads this blog has a sickening level of curiosity about who will be the V.P. choices, save your money, because I just signed up for this, and it’s bound to cost me upwards of a dollar by the time it’s all over:
Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama is close to choosing a running mate, and the first person to find out could be you.
In an e-mail to supporters, Obama’s campaign manager said voters can sign up to receive an e-mail or a text message “the moment” he makes his decision.
“No other campaign has done this before,” campaign manager David Plouffe said in the e-mail. “You can be part of this important moment.”
I signed up not so much because I’m curious about Obama’s V.P. choice, but rather I wanted the first time Obama was the reason I lost money to be my doing.
A text message rate will be a drop in the bucket compared to what will be taken from us by Obama and the Democrat majority to pay for the construction of “Nirvana” — a name which is so far cleverly Photoshopped over “Titanic,” “Hindenburg” and “Hillarycare” — so in the big picture, I don’t at all mind warming up for the big money grab by volunteering a couple of quarters to Verizon on behalf of Barack Obama.
Incidentally, John McCain also plans to announce his veep choice via a text message. It’ll be painted on the side of a Stutz and driven through Phoenix.
Update: A text is coming in from Obama! Here’s the big announcement!
