Tradition, tradition: Obama plays Election Day basketball.

| 4 Comments

PHILADELPHIA, PA.--There have been so many election days since the first voting in Iowa back in January that there has been time for Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) to have firmly established a tradition: to play some basketball on an election day. Obama played in Pittsburgh on Tuesday morning, at a YMCA with some people described as "Chicago friends" among the shooters. Some reporters were also watching on an off-the-record basis.

CONGRATS TO BARACK OBAMA ON ANOTHER VICTORY, I KNOW YOU'VE WON
PENNSYLVANIA BECAUSE THE NETWORKS ARE VERY QUIET!
HILLARY IS BROKE AND THAT'S NO JOKE!
BILL IS A FOOL AND HE NEEDS TO RETURN TO SCHOOL!
CHELSEA TIME TO GET A JOB!
HILLARY IS A LIAR, AND HER PANTS ARE ON FIRE!
GOTTA GO SNIPER FIRE OVERHEAD, SHOT AND A BEER TIME!
SEAN HANNITY FOR COURT JESTER, BILL O'REILLY FOR PINHEAD OF THE
YEAR!

I hope people are noting the times on these blog posts.
Note when certain names come back to the blogs---after Camp Obama gets its blog notes delivered to the kids.
Over the top stuff like Phil's post are not helping.
All those women the campaign's ticked off since New Hampshire, since PA, might not come back. We could be damaging the party's chances with this 'silly' season. Nothing silly about flipping off the people you may have to work with.

i understand

Thank you very very much for sharing this cool Tradition, tradition: Obama plays Election Day basketball. Keep playing basketball and have fun!:)
