An Obama Birthday Boo Boo

It may change by the time you watch this, but the Obama campaign has put up a new video, showing the senator spending his "birthday" with the Southern Christian Leadership Conference.

Obama's birthday is Aug. 4 (you'd know this if you read his washingtonpost.com candidate profile page). The video however says his birthday is Aug. 8, which is tomorrow.

How would the campaign have video of an event that hasn't happened yet?


Expect this to get fixed fast.

Incidentally, a happy belated (or is it early?) birthday to Sen. Obama.

This is news, ha. Just like the new USA Today poll that polled ONLY 490 people. With a error of plus or mins five points. MSM thanks for picking our canididates again. Remember the that are pundits picking Hillary are the same ones who said Bush was great to have a beer with. Look at what that got us. Ha!

I have never posted a comment before. And, I'm said to say, I am posting this one not because I am inspired or intrigued by the reporter's news, but because this is really a pathetic posting.

I understand that blogs are supposed to contain the little tidbits, the inside baseball, the quirks that political nerds like myself eat right up. But this is a sorry excuse for something of interest.

I think it is Jane Fonda's birthday.

I am just about to stop reading the Washington Post's online coverage of the primaries. When did this paper become the insipid wing of the Hilary Clinton campaign? Please stop the ridiculous anti-Obama coverage.

Senator Obama is the people's candidate and the MSM are not going to decide who represents us. The people will speak in this election.

Obama 08!

Wow. The media looks more and more desperate in its attempt to swiftboat Obama. It's hardly a new phenomenon. Remember the spin-mongering on Gore and Kerry - and look what it got us. You're beginning to be so transparent, its almost laughable, if the results weren't so terribly damaging to this country.

It looks to me like another attempt to subvert Obama.
When Obama started to surge in the polls the mdeia first tried to used the other candiates by twisting his words then posing questions to them about his foriegn policy statements.
He was winning that argument not only with all the democratic cadidates but the republican ones to. ALL at the same time...
So the media took a different direction.
Now you have rediculouse coverage like this. It's sad to see how obviouse the media partiality is.
