Wonderful ditty thanks to Atlas reader David.
Obama was so in bed with this guy ............ how far are they going to go to cover Obama crimes? Illinois governor Blagojevich was arrested for trying to sell Barack Obama's vacated Senate seat.Court-appointed wiretaps last month intercepted Blagojevich conspiring to sell the Senate seat that Obama resigned on November 16, according to US Attorney Patrick J Fitzgerald. In return, as recorded in various conversations, he sought a cabinet post, an ambassadorship or a seat on a corporate board for his wife.This is some really sick shiz we are dealing with.
Senate seat for sale? Can I buy the NY senate seat or did Caroline Kennedy pick that up at a fire sale?
Blagojevich and Obama go way back. Both were funded enormous bucks by the convicted Syrian racketeer Rezko. Speculation has simmered for weeks that the key fundraiser for Gov. Rod Blagojevich and Sen. Barack Obama was whispering what he knows in Illinois government to federal prosecutors in hopes of getting a lighter sentence. Rezko raised more than $1 million for Blagojevich's campaign fund and was one of the governor's key advisers. He gave hundreds of thousands to Rezko.'
I do not know how Obama is going to stay one step ahead of his every dirty deal and corrupt actions.
Obama's voice over on Giannoulias's website here. Obama's list of criminal cronies goes on and on (Wright, Ayers, Farrakhan notwithstanding).

Illinois Gov. Blagojevich, chief of staff, arrested (hat tip so many Atlas readers!)
Gov. Rod Blagojevich and his chief of staff, John Harris, were arrested by FBI agents on federal corruption charges Tuesday morning.
Blagojevich and Harris were arrested simultaneously at their homes at about 6:15 a.m., according to Frank Bochte of the FBI. Both were transported to FBI headquarters in Chicago.
In one charge related to the appointment of a senator to replace Barack Obama, prosecutors allege that Blagojevich sought appointment for himseld as Secretary of Health and Human Services in the new Obama administration, or a lucrative job with a union, in exchange for appointing a union-preferred candidate.
Another charge alleges Blagojevich and Harris conspired to demand the firing of Chicago Tribune editorial board members responsible for editorials critical of him in exchange for state help with the sale of Wrigley Field, the Chicago Cubs baseball stadium owned by Tribune Co.
