There's a Pony in There Somewhere

Hi kids. Back from a decadent cruise along the "Mexican Riviera" (one of the most bogus marketing terms ever) and as much as I want to avoid it have succumbed to the irresistible pull of the blog.

With all of the shrill insanity around Barack Obama's nodding acquaintanceship with Bill Ayers, it comes as no surprise that the Blagojevich scandal, someone the president elect really knew, will be played for all it's not worth.

This of course has become a new chew toy for our boy Charlie Sykes, so expect him to give it a good shake multiple times a day.

Typical in his rip and read style (so many innuendos, so little time) is something he regurges from the Washington Post for his radio sheep.
The U.S. attorney's complaint states that Blagojevich mused aloud with his advisers about the possibility that he could seek a high-paying job with Change to Win, the coalition of seven unions -- dominated by SEIU -- that broke away from the AFL-CIO in 2005. Blagojevich and his chief of staff wondered aloud about a "three-way deal" in which he would appoint Obama confidante Valerie Jarrett, a Chicago businesswoman believed to be the woman identified in the complaint as "Candidate 1," to Obama's Senate seat; Blagojevich in return would become Change to Win's executive director; and Obama would reward Change to Win with pro-labor policies.
Everyone together now -- SO WHAT!

Just because the Illinois governor mused about a friend of the president elect, does that mean they both have to be guilty of something? Then again there was the Carter "lust in his heart" lust.

For an authoritarian like Chuck this takes thought crimes to a new level. Now all you have to do is have an individual under indictment think about someone and that person instantly becomes convicted...of something!

Maybe Charlie has seen Minority Report one too many times?


  1. The Washington Post article you quoted insn't just the Blagojevich musing "about a friend of the president-elect," the article says the Illinois governor wondered about a deal involiving appoint a certain person to the open Senate seat and in exchange he would become the union's executive director.

    You usually write a good blog... but in today's case, referring to the part of the article you cited the way you did was an off-base description.

  2. Mark Levin basically said the same thing. Wow!! Welcome to the dark side.
