Barack Obama endorsement...and, be careful what you ask for....

Convicted (and subsequently executed) kidnapper and murderer (okay, he was a "participant" -- the guy who actually did the deed with a claw hammer got life in prison -- Bishop's conviction was for felony murder under Mississippi law) Dale Leo Bishop endorsed presidential hopeful Barack Obama before his execution on Wednesday, 23 July 2008.

In the "be careful what you ask for" category, "Bishop, who was mentally ill [a fact disputed in his appeal to the Mississippi Supreme Court], asked a judge for the death penalty after he was convicted." ...and so, he got satisfaction, nearly ten years after the crime of which he was convicted.
