The MSM Lied to Us All Last Night

Well, this explains the funny smirk on Andrea Mitchell’s face when she, quite confidently, said it was Biden on Hardball at 7.  From the lefty blog MyDD.com:

Well, you can forget about hearing it first via a text message. The old media has scooped the story of Biden being the VP. Apparently, they have known about it since around 8 pm est, when the secret service detail showed up at Biden’s house. A ‘blackout’ of the news held for a couple of hours, and then CNN was able to confirm that Obama asked Biden.

FWIW, I signed up to learn via email, and I’m still waiting for the announcement.  I wonder how many Obamaniacs are in the same position.
As for when the news became official on Obama’s website?  2:45AM.  Hillary, consider yourself slapped in the face:

Joe Biden!
