Central Texas's own Chet Edwards

Chet: Just the Name Alone Sounds Very, Um, Vice-Presidential?

So, yeah, everyone's suddenly thinking that maybe, just maybe, Barack Obama's going to announce Congressman Chet Edwards as his running mate, maybe as early as this afternoon -- and if it's on Fox, it must be true! To which Gawker notes this very funny hypothetical concerning the "totally obscure conservative Texas congressman," heh: "Yes, of course. Because this is the perfect season to roll out those OBAMA/EDWARDS lawn signs, right? Jesus Christ." No, he's John McCain's running mate. --Robert Wilonsky
