Obama - just in case you were wondering who this guy is

Springfield, Ill - An anonymous source within the Obama campaign stated Sen. Barack Obama will declare himself the Democratic Presidential Nominee during a press conference on Friday.

Obama is 'tired' of the day-to-day campaigning, the constant questioning by the media, and apologizing over and over again for the inflammatory statements by his former pastor, the Reverend Jeremiah Wright.

"It's time for this to end." Obama is quoted as saying. When asked about the Democratic Primary process, the Obama source stated, "Who really cares?"

How will this play to the American people? We wanted to find out so, we went to the street in small town America.

"I'm Orvis Talbot of the prestigious TheSpoof, may I ask you a few questions?" "Sure!", stated Miss Abbie Walters of French Lick, IN. "

I asked Miss Abbie Walters, of French Lick, IN, what she thinks of Sen. Barack Obama possibly declaring himself the Democratic nominee this Friday?

"Who?" was her simple reply, as she kept on walking down the street.

I went on to ask nearly a dozen citizens of this fine town, all of whom asked me the same thing.

Maybe the Obama source was right...who really cares?
