Both the Obama and McCain camp have missed the deadline to get onto the ballot in Texas.

“Unless the state of Texas violates their own election laws, Congressman Barr will be the only presidential candidate on the ballot,” says Russell Verney, campaign manager for the Barr Campaign and the former campaign manager for Ross Perot. “Texas law makes no exceptions for missing deadlines.”

Hilarious.

…Oh did I lol…

Crazy enough to be funny, but either too crazy or not quite crazy enough to be correct…

Update, from that second link, below.

PoliTex, the political blog of the Texas-based Star-Telegram, reports:

"Texas Secretary of State spokesperson Ashley Burton said that upon further checking, “Both parties filed before the deadline. We expect their amended filings after both parties finish their nominating process at the conventions.”

Texas law, changed in 2005, requires that the parties submit their candidates names 70 days before the election. Problem is, neither party has gotten through their nominating process.

The Texas Republican Party listed John McCain and “running mate” as their candidates, with an amended certification after the GOP convention in St. Paul. Obama and Biden will be certified after the Democratic Convention"

What do you think his chances are?
