Re: Do We Have a Winner?

Another clue!

Marc Ambinder reads the flight records and concludes that it’s Biden. Of course it’s Biden. I’ve been saying that since earlier this afternoon.


A flight from Midway to New Castle, DE… to pick someone up? Who knows? No other flights from anywhere in and around Chicago to anywhere in and around Delaware… or vice versa. Just this charter.

The flight arrived 36 minutes ago.

What would be funny if the plane carried Al Gore or Hillary Clinton. Or Obama announces that John McCain has agreed to be his running mate.......

Was there a flight from New York to New Castle, DE, earlier in the day?

Jesus. If that campaign is stupid enough to pick a guy with fucking hair plugs to face the Republicans then there is no hope for any of us.

This actually makes me really excited! Truly.

I can't stop reading "Do We Have a Weiner"

Delaware is where a whole bunch of corporations are incorporated and those lofty executive types don't mingle with the coach rabble. Chicago is a big City. This traffic could be completely routine.

It looks like I'll lose all that money I bet on Biden for Secretary of State...oh well.

There was a flight by the same company this morning headed the other way.

I had no idea Delaware even had an airport. I thought Delawareans flew in and out of Philly or Baltimore.

Maybe it's Cindy McCain's plane?

Delaware is where corporations are sometimes "incorporated" and their process papers can be served. It isn't where the corporations base their executives......Not even close... Try again in guessing why this plane is leaving the big city of Chicago and going to Delaware.

This is pretty cool. Are records like this publicly available somewhere? How do we check them?

Posted by stalky | August 22, 2008 8:17 PM

Or Biden could have been in D.C. and flown out of Dulles or Reagan.

Posted by raindrop | August 22, 2008 8:37 PM

Hey, it Obama's announcement. Just trying to keep the blogosphere from taking that away from him.

Posted by Zander | August 22, 2008 10:17 PM

Jesus Christ, guys, this is some serious Net Force-style shit. I don't know if I should be impressed or horrified. Maybe both.
