Another Obama/Bayh Hoax?
Matt Drudge says it's real. A Kansas City company is claimed to be printing up Obama/Bayh bumperstickers. NBC's Andrea Mitchell says, "Not so fast." Mitchell claims the bumpersticker report is bogus. She says her sources tell her that the choice is likely to be Sen. Joe Biden. Her sources tell her Senator Bayh and Gov. Kaine were notified today that they were not going to be the choice. Mitchell notes that Biden's entire family has gathered at his home and that students of the law school class he was scheduled to teach tomorrow have been told to expect a substitute. It just gets crazier by the moment. As for those text message alerts, it will reportedly take at least 3 to 4 hours for all of the recipients to be notified. That leads some to speculate the official word won't go out until the wee hours of Saturday morning.
UPDATE: Fox News now cites an Internet report claiming that a private jet left Chicago's Midway Airport earlier this evening en route to Wilmington, Delaware to pick up Sen. Biden.
