PHILADELPHIA -- Barack Obama was much ridiculed by pundits and his opponents for a dismal performance last month at an Altoona bowling alley, but he's not encouraging Pennsylvania voters to forget about it.
A shot of Obama at the lanes, in shirt and tie and winding up to roll -- unclear if he is about to launch it straight into the gutter, as he did on several occasions -- graces a new piece of literature Obama is distributing in the state, which votes next week. The four-page brochure features a scrapbook-like collection of Obama moments from his six-day bus tour through the state: joking with dairy workers, paying for a hot-dog lunch, and grasping a football given to him by former Steelers star Jerome Bettis.
