    I'll bet everyone in the bar for their VOTE that I shoot it in the corner pocket. This is the only way I can get the West Virgina or any other working class VOTES!!!

    Senator Obama sent the cue ball flying into the street, scoring yet another gutter ball during a photo op.

    Senator Obama keeps his eyes on the prize as he ponders how to knockout three birds (Bill, Hillary and Chelsea) with one pole, I mean stone at the polls in West Virginia.

    This is so out of character. Obama never does anything behind the back.

    May 13, 2008 at 4:38 pm |
  28. Jack Magestro in Wisconsin

    Obama brings forth his policy plans to make America green.
    Well, okay, it's just felt, but it's a start. It is green, you can see that.

    Obama shoots pool. Cheney only shoots lawyers.

    Behind the scene, we've heard Bill Clinton placed a bet in favor or
    Obama making this shot.

    It helps when they paint faces of Hillary on the balls. Wish they would have done that with the bowling pins.

    I don't think this is what they had in mind when they said Obama should be 'hustling for votes.'
