The Official VP Prayer Post

The Obama veep announcement should be coming soon (tonight or in the morning). I’ll post it here as soon as I get the text message from on high and can get to a computer.

It would be just too good to be true if it’s Biden, wouldn’t it?


“Biden… Biden… Biden…”

There, hopefully that helps.

As for McCain, word is the field has narrowed down to Romney or Pawlenty. “Word is” is usually wrong, however. Also add “oh please not Lieberman” to the above prayer request.

Update: 9:45 p.m. — For what it’s worth, it’s being reported that the text message won’t go out until the morning. I’ll give it until about 11:30 p.m. eastern tonight, or whenever the Tigers/Royals game ends (whichever comes first) and then won’t stay awake waiting at all. Liberals are costing us enough without adding sleep to the list.

Update II: 11:04 p.m. — Speculation is running amok about a sudden flurry of activity at Joe Biden’s house, including a police car pulling into the driveway. It could be that he’s about to be named as Obama’s running mate, or it could be preventative measures to keep Biden from committing suicide when he finds out he’s not the guy.

Update III: Prayer answered in the affirmative! And the angels sang, the couple of clean and articulate African-Americans danced and the Indians working at Dunkin’ Donuts shops rejoiced as the text message sent at 3:07 a.m. EDT read “Barack has chosen Senator Joe Biden to be our VP nominee.”
