Barack Obama is rooting for the Phillies in the upcoming World Series. However, a couple of days ago, at a rally in Florida, six members of the Tampa Bay Rays came out to support Obama. Obama was so touched by this, he had this to say: "I’ve said from the beginning that I am a unity candidate, bringing people together. So when you see a White Sox Fan showing love to the Rays, and the Rays showing some love back – you know we are on to something right here.”
Earlier today, John McCain called Barack Obama out on this apparent flip-flopping. Speaking to a crowd of factory workers at a manufacturing plant in Pennsylvania, McCain said, "It’s pretty simple really. When he’s campaigning in Philadelphia, he roots for the Phillies, and when he’s campaigning in Tampa Bay, he shows love to the Rays. It’s kind of like the way he campaigns on tax cuts, but then votes for tax increases after he’s elected." (Oh my god! Burn!)
The Obama campaign had this to say: "Senator Obama said he’s rooting for the Phillies. Yesterday he said nice things about the members of the team who came out to support him, but that doesn’t change the fact that Tampa Bay bounced his White Sox out of the playoffs.”
Sarah Palin, upon hearing that Obama is a White Sox fan immediately began linking him to disgraced outfielder, Shoeless Joe Jackson. When pressed how Obama could possibly have any affiliation with a ballplayer who died 10 years before he was born, Palin politely reminded reporters that you can see Russia from Alaska.
Oh, and for the record, this is retarded.
