Drudge has a picture of a bumper sticker that says Obama/Bayh 08 from a company in Kansas City that specializes in political literature. Drudge has this at the top of his page:
KMBC’s Micheal Mahoney reports a company in Kansas City, which specializes in political literature, has been printing Obama-Bayh material… MORE… Gill Studios, would not confirm information about the material. They would not deny it either. At least three sources close to the plant’s operations reported the Obama-Bayh material was being produced…
Well, he could do worse that Evan Bayh; however, he’s a really bland speaker. On top of that, the campaign name Obama/Bayh doesn’t have a very good subliminal message for Obama. When I hear Obama/Bayh, I think of Obama, bye.
Hat tip: Stop the ACLU
Michelle Malkin also got an email from a reader who says his source in the political t-shirt business is hearing the same thing.
Ed Morrissey notes that in this new bumpersticker, the famous Obama O logo is missing, making him a bit suspicious of the Bayh rumor.
No matter what, we’ll know soon enough.
Update: Byron York says out loud what crossed my mind after I wrote this post:
All I can say is that the Obama/Bayh bumper sticker in question sure doesn’t look like Obama’s other stuff. Graphically, it’s a lot clunkier than the rather smooth products the Obama campaign turns out — from stickers to T-shirts to press badges.
Not to mention, what’s with the 0 in 08? The star inside the 0 makes it look like a pasty on a boob. And what’s with the Coca Cola-like line between the names? The more I think about it, the more I wonder if it’s a hoax. If it’s not, it’s a pretty bad design.
Update II: MSNBC reports that Bayh and Kaine have been told they are out of the running for VP.
