Obama: endorsed by executed criminal.
Before he died Wednesday evening, death row inmate Dale Leo Bishop apologized to his victim’s family, thanked America and urged people to vote for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.
You’ve got to wonder what the guy was thinking, maybe he’s a McCain fan? Either way, I guess he doesn’t care now.
In other Obama news, the guy committed a major faux pas when he decided not to visit the troops in hospital while in Germany. Apparently the cameras weren’t allowed so he decided not to go at the last minute.
I think the worst thing is that Obama actually used foreign countries to campaign, even giving a speech after a free concert (you didn’t really think all those people turned up just to see him did you?) in Germany.
I heard some sound bites from his speech this morning, and I though it was ghastly – all hot air and platitutes aimed to please the ear of his listeners.
Anyho, can you imagine what people would have said had Bush gone to Germany during the campaign? He’d have been crucified. I don’t think being popular with Europe is going to cut much ice either back home, it certainly didn’t make the slightest difference last time.
