My new Barack Obama Inkling market

I started a new Inkling market: Will Barack Obama go bowling again before November 4, 2008? It addresses a serious question, will he let his image as a bowling klutz stand, or might he take some midnight lessons with some bowling guru, e.g. Earl Anthony (if he was still alive), and take another run at it?

I'm of a mind that Mr. Obama will not want that bowling video to run over-and-over-and-over like some previous tank footage... I think the best way for him to erase that video from the publics mind is to get back on the horse, and to knock down some pins. We know he is athletic, and I'm thinking he could make rapid improvements in his game with a little practice.

If I was allowed to invest in a market I'd created I'd be going long. Get yourself over to Inkling and make an investment...

Hmmm. I'm thinkin' "bowling klutz" will do wonders for Obama's image among the blue-collar voters he's had a tough time connecting with. [Sorta like what those frequent grammatical faux pas have done for George W.]

A PR maven probably cooked up the whole bowling thing, anyway. Maybe even had Barrack practice hitting the gutter.

Please tell me you chuckled just a bit at that Earl Anthony mention. Somehow his passing had escaped my attention.

I didn't see where you had made your investment yet. :)

Ah, I passed right over your Earl Anthony link (please forgive, end of a long day--did give me a chuckle this morning, though).

Remember, I live in N.H., where we enjoy continuous presidential primary politics as our official State Sport.

Sorry I can't "invest" in the Obama Inkling market. Gambling: bad karma.

It's not real money. It's just virtual Inkles. All for fun...
