Sen. Barack Obama planned to name Sen. Joe Biden as his running mate by text message at 8 a.m. ET Saturday morning, but was forced to move up the announcement when CNN broke the story after midnight.
The message instead went out just after 3 a.m. ET.
Said senior Obama aide Robert Gibbs: “Had a certain network not blown our cover at a certain time the text message would have gone out in the morning, 8 a.m. Eastern. We told people they would find out from us. When we decided it was going to get out we decided to send the text out.”
Oops. Oh well, I guess we’ll just have to find another reason why Obama is a raving sexist motivated by nothing more than hatred of Hillary and, indeed, all women.
