It’s like this entire election season was created to make me laugh like a loon on a regular basis.

Obama seeks info on Dodd in vice president search By NEDRA PICKLER, Associated Press Writer 57 minutes agoWASHINGTON – Barack Obama’s presidential campaign has requested information from Democratic Sen. Chris Dodd as part of its search for a possible vice presidential candidate.The former White House hopeful and Connecticut lawmaker indicated Wednesday that he has been approached by the campaign. “There’s been some inquiries, yeah,” Dodd said. “They ask for a lot of stuff. I’ll leave it there.”Obama campaign spokesman Bill Burton and Dodd’s Senate office declined comment Thursday.

Probably wise of both. Free hint to the Obama campaign: when the AP, on looking over a potential VP candidate’s recent history, decides to go with the “may be implicated in mortgage kickback scandal” bit over the “sorta-kinda fought to derail the FISA bill” bit… yeah, maybe this was a bit of a time-waster for you. But don’t let me stop you from picking the man. All I ask is that you wait for my air-popper to finish the latest bowl of popcorn.

Because you can’t put BACON SALT* on microwave popcorn, of course.
