No Obamamania from Michigan GOP Chair

By Juliet Eilperin
TAYLOR, Mich. -- Michigan GOP Chairman Saul Anuzis has a new nickname for Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.): "pet rock."

Speaking to a gathering of GOP stalwarts tonight, Anuzis conceded the presidential hopeful was lovable and popular. But that just makes him, in Anuzis's eyes, "the pet rock of the 2008 campaign."

"At the end of the day, we're going to figure out it's just a rock," Anuzis told the crowd, prompting a few laughs. "He's just another typical liberal senator who wants to be president of the United States."

No telling which Democratic presidential candidate will earn the nickname "Chia Pet" in the days to come.
