This morning, 23 August 2008, at 1:03 am, I had the following exchange via text message:
Obama: Barack has chosen Senator Joe Biden to be our VP nominee. Watch the first Obama-Biden rally live at 3pm ET on www.barackobama.com. Spread the word!
Me: k, lol
Obama: Um… why do you find Biden funny?
Me: nOOb. jK.
Obama: I’m afraid I don’t…
Me: MacCne pwns Obma
Obama: Look, if you, as a voter, have something constructive to say about my vice-presidential choice…
Me: Zzzz. YGTbKm? Biden = old, wrkly
Obama: I was hoping that Senator Biden’s experience would add gravitas, especially in the realm of foreign affairs.
Me: |-O. W/evr.
Obama: Frankly, I was anticipating this reaction from some of my supporters. However, polling data indicate that Biden will complement what the public perceives as my vulnerabilities vis-a-vis John McCain.
Me: Hold on, need WC.
Obama: If you want to continue your critique of Senator Biden later, at a more convenient time for you…?
Me: NP, just #1. Does Bdn 4:20?
Obama: Excuse me?
Me: lmao! w33d!
Obama: I’m not sure this is going in a productive direction.
