I fear that my blossoming career as a political prognosticator may be over… Well, sort of…
I had thought that the first of the sempiternal scandals related to the Presidency (that still has thirty days worth of “down time” before continuing the Democratic avocation of sullying, soiling and otherwise defiling the Oval Office..) would be the direct correlation between the Obama campaign and the can of assorted nuts known as ACORN.
The ever complicit and “impartial” media decided that the multiple millions of “registered votes” cast by the deceased and any number of fictional cartoon characters were properly cast for Barack Hussein Obama, therefore there was no “scandal”. (For those who are somewhat curious, here is an incomplete list of non-fictional cartoon characters: Michael Moore, Dennis Kucinich, Nancy Pelosi..) You will note the absence of any of the previous cries of “voter fraud”, “voter irregularities” and “voter intimidation” as relates to the “complicated” machinery used for voting. Please note that these “scandals” always pop up in states that the liberals “need to win”, for example, Ohio and Florida, never Wyoming or North Dakota and these bellows only are only heard when the liberals LOSE. When the left’s patented chicanery elicits a WIN, all is right with the world..
I knew that there would be a scandal BEFORE the next liberal takes office. Little did I know that the scandal would be about the office that he left behind.. So I batted .500. That is better than your local weathercaster and it is considerably higher than any ridiculously overpaid New York Yankee..
Governor Rod Blagojevich, Illinois’ favorite liberal Chia pet, took a page right out of the Randy Cunningham political play book. Blagojevich all but put the vacant Illinois Senate seat on Ebay, hoping to cash in before the credit card bills from his Christmas purchases begin arriving in his mailbox. (I will also state that for the record, I believe that the Senate seat in question has been vacant since January 3, 2005..) The next liberal President chose as his Chief of Staff one Rahm Emanuel, who either on his own or with some prodding from his new boss, decided to put his weenie into this political campfire which I hope will soon become a political wild fire..
Now the Democratic dance of the “definition of ‘is’ is” begins.
Let’s fill in our scorecards. Rahm Emanuel succeeded Blagojevich in the House and he also served as a campaign adviser for Blagojevich. He “claims” that he spoke “just once” about Obama’s seat and he spoke “four times” to Blagojevich’s former Chief of Staff John Harris, who was himself arrested relative to this “scandal”.
When applying “the totality of the definition of words” to any liberal statement, “just once” leads to a litany of contiguous questions.. How long was this “one” conversation? Just exactly what was said as well?
Imagine the impact if an incoming President’s Chief of Staff were to say, for example, ‘We would appreciate your consideration of Valerie Jarrett’ (a close Obama friend). The weight of those few words and their direct implications aren’t lost upon the liberal wonks within the state of Illinois, but they will no doubt become ridiculously vague when the “Clinton magic” is applied (app-lied) to either an impending impeachment proceeding or a federal prosecution or two.
The Obama team has conducted an “internal investigation” and the “facts” that they have unearthed were to be released during “Christmas week since it may mean it will be quietly forgotten..” What if Nixon had been allowed to “internally investigate” Haldeman and Ehrlichman? What if Clinton had been allowed to “internally investigate” himself pertaining to the litany of female victims who have stepped forward? It was hysterical when Nancy “727” Pelosi promised “the most ethical Congress in history” but Obama’s comical cacophony (caco-phony) of “Change” didn’t even make it to Inauguration Day. Isn’t there an old saying that goes, “the more things change, the more they remain the same”?
Joe Lockhart, a former Clinton press secretary who is well versed in the “Democratic dance of deception” said that Obama was “right to play it safe”, so that the Obama obfuscators could “make sure the accounting was complete..” The question here is: Who will be the Obama team’s Susan McDougal? Who gets to publicly walk the plank first while the Obama team “takes care of them” after the deed is done and the smoke has cleared?
Not only are there Obama cabinet VIP’s mired in all of this, but a “Democratic donor” named Raghuveer Nayek, who wanted Jesse Jackson Jr. to fill the Obama seat, seems firmly ensconced as well. “Democratic donor” in the world of Democratic alliteration, is a diplomatic way of saying “Future felon” and this one wanted Jack$on’s kid to continue the procession of poltroons, otherwise known as “Illinois politicians”, otherwise known as “fabricated figureheads.” (Be careful with the spelling of that last word. Je$$e or $harpton, when he is not lunching with unqualified, inexperienced sandbaggers, might become “offended”..)
Blagojevich’s former aide turned snitch, John Wyma, has a number of “clients” who contributed over $100,000 to Emanuel’s campaigns and “clients” who have forked over more than $445,000 to Balgojevich. All good liberal politicians should at least have a good banker and a good bail bondsman on retainer at all times..
It is no surprise that “money talks” with a campaign that thought that the scheme of “raffling” a chance, at twenty-five bucks a crack, to spend election eve along side Obama, was a great idea. That “game of chance” is the appropriate analogy for a campaign that should have billed itself as “America’s ultimate gamble”..
Another disgusting element of this multi-layered Democratic scandal is the fact that the federal prosecutors are telling the Illinois House panel considering their Blagojevich impeachment proceedings that the House probe is “interfering with his (their) criminal investigation”.. My guess is that the federal prosecutors are singing for their supper.
Blagojevich doesn’t have any friends here, but the “wider implications” involving Obama staffers and possibly Obama himself, could cause the federal prosecutors to take “action”.. How much and what kind of “action” is a matter of conjecture..
The incoming President has the staffing of the federal prosecutor’s office as one of his “concerns”. “Adjusting” the line up at the prosecutor’s office becomes a “scandal” depending upon who occupies the office of the President. President Clinton fires ALL of the federal prosecutors, no scandal. President Bush fires eight prosecutors, therefore it is a scandal of mythic proportions. Surely the Obama team wouldn’t consider taking any “action” against any and all thorough and competent federal prosecutors that might discover or unearth any and all malfeasance on the part of any and all Obama staff members, would they?
Political consultant to Blagojevich Peter Giangreco, said that Emanuel and Blagojevich “only dealt with each other because they occupied the same political geography..” That “geography” is known to the rest of us as “the fetid swamp of Illinois politics” and the incoming President, hailing from the same political cesspool, has more than just a little of the noxious odor of “Illinois politics as usual” about him.
The “Champeen of Change” said that “when all is revealed, it will be clear that neither he nor his staff had any contacts with Blagojevich..” “When all is revealed”? To paraphrase his political predecessor, “It depends on what the definition of ‘is’ is..” In this case, it depends upon what the definition of “all” is and what the definition of “revealed” is..
