Obama-Bryant blog war escalates

Below: A screen shot of Obama's personal blog
"I would be foolish not to respond," says presidential candidate

B & P News - Amman, Jordan

Presidential candidate Barack Obama has taken to his blog to respond to a South Carolina lawmaker who made headlines earlier this week by using his internet website to post a photograph of a t-shirt that compared the candidate to international terrorist Osama Bin-Laden.

On Tuesday, after meeting with Afghan President Hamid Karzai, but prior to delivering a speech in Jordan outlining his vision for peace in the Middle East , Obama updated his personal blog, "Barack's Place," to respond to state senator Kevin Bryant (R).

"I take it very seriously when a state legislator from Anderson, South Carolina takes a photograph of a t-shirt," Obama told reporters following a briefing by military commanders stationed in the region. "I would be foolish not to respond in kind by taking a picture of a t-shirt and posting it on my own personal blog."

The photograph posted by Obama features a likeness of Bryant and an unflattering reference to the state senator. Mr. Bryant told media outlets that Obama's post was "over-the-top," "insulting," and "played on people's fear of douche."

Bryant, however, vows to keep the pressure on Obama, saying he intends to use his cell phone to take a picture of a bumper sticker that he once saw featuring the phrase "No-bama."

Bryant also hinted that he plans to unveil insider information about Obama's middle name.

Kevin Bryant is the perfect example of why siblings shouldn't marry. This is what happens when Kev tries to think for himself instead of doing everything Sanford tells him.
