Campaign Button Shows Obama, Larry Craig

Ouch, that's gotta hurt!

Somehow, I don’t think Barack Obama will “tap” Larry Craig for his VP slot. Unless, of course, The Obamessiah is now holding meetings in an airport men’s room.

(CNN) – Barack Obama likes to stress his willingness to work across party lines, but Republican Sen. Larry Craig probably isn’t the Illinois senator’s top choice when it comes to showcasing his bipartisan credentials.

But campaign buttons mistakenly featuring those two politicians surfaced over the weekend under the Obama campaign’s motto “Change You Can Believe In,” according to CNN Idaho affiliate KPVI.

The buttons, created by an Ohio-based company called Tigereye Design, was supposed to feature Obama alongside the Democratic Senate candidate in Idaho, Larry LaRocco. A retired editor for the Lewiston Tribune noticed the mistaken buttons and printed them in Sunday’s edition.

Well, in fairness, an Obama-Craig ticket would certainly be a change.

    Which brings up an interesting question….where exactly was Barack H. Obama on the day that Larry Craig was arrested?

    DesertSage – Just washing his hands in the bathroom . . .

    Doghouse – Thank you, Jerry Seinfeld.

    RT – That’s why he needed to wash his hands!

    Leoni2 – It’s the bathroom, I think.
