Obama Text Message Announcing Biden as his VP

It’s 3AM and I should be safe and asleep. But there’s a phone beside me and it’s beeping. Something’s happening in the world.


The text message arrived early Saturday 8/23/08, 3:04 AM -- "Barack has chosen Senator Joe Biden to be our VP nominee. Watch the first Obama-Biden rally live at 3pm ET on Spread the word!"


Looks like I was first to post a screenshot of the SMS to Flickr. Yay. Go me. I pwnd you all. Woo hoo. I should be vice-president -- of beating you all to posting screenshots of text messages to the web. Haha! That's me, vice-president of the internet!


OK I should sleep now.

I mean, it's not like I need to be all protective over a simple photo of a text message on a mobile phone.)
