Someone's Willing to Call it Early

In an article you may have missed, Tribble Ad Agency went on the record Monday with the news of Obama's running mate.
We have a credible lead that Barack Obama will be announcing Kathleen Sebelius for Vice President / VP. [sic]
Of course, the article politely requests that the reader "file it as rumor" until verification, but that's a bit of a backpedal after titling the article "Barack Obama chooses Kathleen Sebelius for Vice President."

If you're like me, you're fired up about the disagreement I just described between headline and article. If you're like everyone else, you're wondering who the heck Kathleen Sebelius is. I guess I can choke back my frustration and refrain from beating myself in the crotch with a copy of Strunk and White long enough to tell you everything I know about the woman:

She's the Governor of Kansas, and

She delivered the Democratic response to the 2008 State of the Union Address (Transcript):

I've been working the phones for two weeks, including talking with political junkies with ties to the Obama Campaign. Word is that, yes, it's Sebelius.

Thanks for the tip, Kilroy.

And thank you for writing an article in which the particulars don't back away from the thesis explicitly stated in the title.

That's a sweet Hunter S. Thompson outfit, by the way.

Why doesn't he just kick Hilary in the mouth on the first night of the convention?

Oh- I think that is Hunter S. Thompson. The picture was just so itty-bitty.

I heard about this person just a few days ago as being extremely likely, of course, had you asked I would have said "the lady who gave the Demo's response to the 2008 State of the Union speech"

My arch nemisis at work and I were discussing this and even though he is a lock-step, dyed in the wool yellowdog, he blunty stated that no way could someone with a tricky last name as Sebelius be VP.

I love it when he is wrong.
