Russert Detains Obama for Further Questioning

Cleveland, OH – Following the Democratic primary debate at Cleveland State University Tuesday night, NBC Washington bureau chief Tim Russert detained Barack Obama for several hours in a small room in the school’s main building, and forced him to answer additional questions.

“I didn’t like some of his answers, and I had some documents of his from elementary school that I wanted him to answer for,” Russert said. “One of them contained a drawing of what was supposedly a tree, but actually looked very much like Osama bin Laden. I couldn’t let that go unanswered.”
