Good point.

"What remains to be seen is whether this episode will put an end to what Chicago Tribune political columnist John Kass calls the national media's "almost willful" fantasy that Mr. Obama and Chicago's political culture have little to do with each other. Mr. Kass notes that the media devoted a lot more time and energy to investigating the inner workings of Sarah Palin's Wasilla, Alaska, than it has looking at Mr. Obama's Chicago connections."

I'm curious.

Did Jim Doyle take a state owned or private plane to Washington to beg for money?

Nah, he couldn't just fly coach could he?

After all the Auto CEOs got nailed (justifiably) for taking private planes to beg for cash, why should Jimmie Doyle be any different?

Manbearpig...

Not so much.

I wonder how Sec State Clinton will respond to this one?

Iran's Vice-President Rahim Mashaie said Tuesday that Zionism's annihilation should turn into a global cause and demand. Mashaie, who is in Mecca to perform annual Hajj pilgrimage, told Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir that "corrupt and criminal" Zionist regime is not only harmful and a threat for the Arab and Muslim world but also for whole the world mankind. "So, its removal should turn into a global cause and demand." According to the Islamic republic news agency, Al-Bashir, for his part, said that global conditions necessitate tighter cooperation between Iran and Sudan.

For those who don't speak terrorist, Rahim Mashaie just called for the world to unite to destroy Israel. Yeah, and you negotiate with evil like that in what way?

So, Obama says he never met or spoke with Blagojevich about filling his Senate seat? LIAR!

Liar.

So, who's telling a lie?

Barack (Censored) Obama or his Senior Advisor David Axelrod?

Obama says he never discussed his Senate replacement with Blagojevich, Axelrod says he did.

Who's the liar? The Office of the President Elect or the Senior Advisor to The Office of the President Elect?

My money is on The Office of the President Elect.

Auto Czar?

So the do-gooders in Congress want us to have an auto czar. No doubt someone to tell us how our cars should be boring and run on the power of Congress' giant ego alone.



If we are to have a car Czar let's make it Carroll Shelby.









Either that or Paul Teutul Sr.

Yet somehow 47% of voters (Democrats) vote for the indicted corrupt guy.

So this is a tough "Meet The Press" question?

In grilling Emperor Elect Obama on his smoking habits, Tom Brokaw and Emperor Obama shared the follow exchange....

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President-elect Barack Obama failed to give a straight answer when asked on a U.S. talkshow on Sunday whether he had managed to quit smoking.

In a country where cigarettes are responsible for one in five deaths and smoking costs tens of billions of dollars in health care, Obama has been under pressure to set an example by giving up his reported two-decade-old habit.


Appearing on NBC's "Meet the Press" program, interviewer Tom Brokaw told Obama he had ducked answering the question during an interview last month with ABC's Barbara Walters.
Noting that the White House was a no-smoking zone, Brokaw asked Obama, "Have you stopped smoking?"

"I have," Obama replied, smiling broadly. "What I said was that there are times where I have fallen off the wagon."


"Wait a minute," Brokaw interjected, "that means you haven't stopped."

"Fair enough," Obama said. "What I would say is that I have done a terrific job under the circumstances of making myself much healthier. You will not see any violations of these rules in the White House."

I guess it never occurred to Mr. Brokaw that if Emperor Obama wants to set a new rule at the White House he will have the power to do so. Can you imagine Emperor Obama out in back by the loading dock sucking down a quick cig while trying to duck the photogs (and Michelle)? I can.

Additionally, if it is so outrageous, Mr. Brokaw should go do an expose' on Congressional smoking habits. You know, let the people know about how smoking is allowed in no other government buildings other than Congressional offices. After all Congress always give immunity to themselves of the nanny-state laws they pass.

One more thing...

What is it about Emperor Obama that he can't give a simple answer to a simple question? "I have done a terrific job under the circumstances of making myself much healthier." What the ^T$&*@!)! is that?
