Most pundits say that John Edwards' love child is probably out of the running, but to be certain you will need to go to an absolutely secret page on Obama's campaign site, sign over your first born child and spent 2 years working in the Recycling Mines as part of the Obama Youth Brigade, and then in gratitude for your service, Obama will send you a text message letting you know 60 seconds before anyone else who his VP pick will be.
Hope it's worth it.
Meanwhile the media is reporting that Russia has pulled out of Georgia, which they have, since by pulling out what they really mean is that they're digging trenches, positioning missiles and keeping an army inside Georgia, not to mention planting minefields.
In Israel meanwhile the race to succeed Olmert as Israel's Biggest Traitor is heating up between Livni, Barak, Mofaz and Nasrallah.
Nasrallah's bid to be Israel's next prime minister was quite unexpected, but was greeted positively by the international community when he promised to withdraw from the West Bank, Jerusalem and all the rest of Israel too.
While some Israelis were initially concerned by the thought of having an archterrorist as Israel's Prime Minister, pundits have pointed out that Nasrallah showed more concern for Israel's security than Shimon Peres and after a brief appearance at a Russian WW2 Veterans rally, a blessing from Imam Ovadya Yosef YS'V and a promise to dismantle the Ministry of Religious Affairs and replace it with a committee staffed jointly by Shinui and UTJ, Nasrallah seems on track to be Kadima's next leader.
When asked to comment Olmert attempted to reply, only to be shot by several blanks by a right wing extremist, walked into his limo and was pronounced dead twice at the hospital, leaving behind only a bloodstained sheet of music entitled, "Shir LeSham".
Now in slightly more serious news from the blogsphere
Israel Matzav covers reaction to Jimmy Carter appearance at the DNC convention, and I agree, Carter, Sharpton, Jackson represent the far truer face of the rotting cesspool that the Democratic party has become. Let them speak. Let them show the party's true face to the world.
The hand that shook Khaled Meshal's should not be allowed to rise in support of Senator Obama's candidacy for president.
Except of course that should Obama win we can reliably expect his hand to be shaking Khaled Meshal's hand too.
At Woman Honor Thyself a swift kick to the glutemus maximus of the anti-war left over Georgia.
Atlas Shrugs follows the latest developments in the leadup to the big showdown in Denver
A prominent Philadelphia attorney and Hillary Clinton supporter filed suit this afternoon in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against Illinois Sen. Barack Obama and the Democratic National Committee. The action seeks an injunction preventing the senator from continuing his candidacy and a court order enjoining the DNC from nominating him next week, all on grounds that Sen. Obama is constitutionally ineligible to run for and hold the office of President of the United States.This will probably go nowhere, but it once again serves notice that Soros' Golden Boy shouldn't expect a smooth ride to the convention or anywhere else.
Phillip Berg, the filing attorney, is a former gubernatorial and senatorial candidate, former chair of the Democratic Party in Montgomery (PA) County, former member of the Democratic State Committee, and former Deputy Attorney General of Pennsylvania. According to Berg, he filed the suit--just days before the DNC is to hold its nominating convention in Denver--for the health of the Democratic Party.
"I filed this action at this time," Berg stated, "to avoid the obvious problems that will occur when the Republican Party raises these issues after Obama is nominated.".
Berg cited a number of unanswered questions regarding the Illinois senator's background, and in today's lawsuit maintained that Sen. Obama is not a naturalized U.S. citizen or that, if he ever was, he lost his citizenship when he was adopted in Indonesia. Berg also cites what he calls "dual loyalties" due to his citizenship and ties with Kenya and Indonesia.
Road Sassy asks if Obama can't even be his own brother's keeper, what can he hope to do for America? Would you trust someone who abandons his own flesh and blood to live on a dollar a day, to be our great "humanitarian"?
I live like a recluse, no one knows I exist. I live on less than a dollar a month. If anyone says something about my surname, I say we are not related. I am ashamed.”
And that's Obama's brother? Imagine what we're in for.

Lemon Lime Moon writers on the immaturity of the 2008 election
It doesn't seem like either candidate knows how to run an adult campaign anymore. Obama throws concerts at his rallies and uses viral marketing to build suspense over his Vice Presidential pick. McCain makes campaign commercials featuring Paris Hilton.
In the Election for Kids it's no wonder that the biggest slam against McCain is that he's old and Obama's selling point is his youthfulness and slogans that could just as easily be used to sell a new flavor of Pepsi as a presidential candidate.
We are the ones we have been waiting for. The New Generation. The Pepsi Generation. Every marketing campaign focuses on new products, new flavors, new generations overthrowing the ways of the old. Pepsi defined itself by being "fresh" unlike Coke, appealing to a new generation.
