Sunday Roundup

r u awke??? The Obama camp clearly has a sense of humor. Not only did it start sending out its text message announcement about Biden at, that's right, 3 a.m., there is also something delicious about using this truncated form of communication to disclose the selection of one of the most garrulous politicians in history. He's also "articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy." And a very good pick, especially given the urgent need to put an end to McCain's perceived strength on national security. Expect to see "Kinnock," "Anita Hill," and "Dunkin' Donuts" spike on Google Trends. The DNC starts tomorrow, and HuffPost is hosting a discussion on New Media, and also offering harried conventioneers a place to unplug and recharge at The Oasis.
