Everybody was talking about Evan Bayh and Obama showing up together in Indiana. I'm still not so sure that this is the correct move, but it has been forecast and broken down to a science that Obama/Bayh will be announced as the Democratic ticket today.
Bil Browning, who predicted this announcement on his blog, The Bilerico Project, has basically outed himself as a false prophet. Now, I admit that he had several great reasons to assume that his prediction would be valid and he'd become the next magical political guru. But as we all know, you must be an ass first to assume anything.
Two reasons he gave for his Obama/Bayh announcement theory:
1. The Olympics start on Friday and run until the Democratic convention starts...
4. The website ObamaBayh08.com is taken...

Click the link above if you care. As you know, there was no VP announcement today. I guess that's what happens when you get high off you your own supply. But I can admire Browning going out on a limb, especially on The Huffington Post, which picked up his prediction and put it in front of a national audience of blog readers. He had to know that he might be proven wrong today, and wouldn't you know...
A better bet would be that Obama announces his VP candidate either right before or during the convention. He's going on vacation soon, so maybe when he gets back he'll let everybody know who it will be.
Until then, can we all just calm down and leave the Negrodamus role to Paul Mooney?
