Text or Leak! It's On Its Way!
Obama Decided.

The Veep Knows.

The Non-Veeps know.

A Secret Can Be Held Between Three People, If Two Are Dead.

Text or Leak! Here It Comes.

4. What's worse, putting on a few pounds, or anal leakage?
I'd rather go up a size, myself...

2. Yep. Because if The Veep knows, that means their spouse knows....
... their children know, their parents/siblings know, maybe a few close staffers and business associates know... you can't keep it down once you tell the person they're it.

It's one thing to keep a secret among Obama, Michelle Obama, Axelrod and Plouffe, but now? Cat's outta da bag!!!

3. A secret isn't any good unless you tell somebody.

5. Either the word gets out by 3:00 Pacific time today
Or they decided to hold back until tomorrow. And only because they think Gramps is taking a well deserved bitchslap over "Housegate".

12. Yep. The tight-lipped group is not in control anymore.
For the text to be ahead, they need to hurry.

13. I have a feeling your avatar has a good chance of coming true. Biden would be a good choice!
He's tough, won't back down from the right wing, and seems very knowledgeable about foreign policy. Remember how ferociously he came out against the anti-Obama fools when they attacked Obama? Just imagine what will happen to the right wing if he's the VP. He'll chew them up and spit them out!

16. I just woke up to see the text on my phone.
And, then read that it leaked. So, it still came to me first via text.

Great ticket! We will win!

15. MSNBC said they "confirmed" it
Then they said Biden has accepted and when the text goes out.....

Of course, they didn't say how they confirmed it.
