Impeachment is back on the agenda

By Dave Weinbaum

Printer Friendly Version
Email this article | Liberals, take a few deep breaths! Relax! I'm talking about the removal from office of Illinois Governor, Democrat Rod Blagojevich. As prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald says, Rod was arrested for his "...corruption crime spree."

Unlike what we all know you'd do if this involved Bush or Cheney; I'm not calling for the impeachment of Barack Hussein Obama...yet. That's despite the fact The One endorsed Democrat Blag for Illinois Governor in 2006, while knowing full well that Rod was under federal investigation. The "criminal" Dem governor returned the favor by backing Obama in 2008.

What did Obama know and when will he disavow it?

There are literally thousands of unanswered questions to this quandary, some of which are:

  • Did prosecutor Fitzgerald hold up the arrest of the bad governor until after the presidential election and/or before he committed an actual crime?

  • Why did Obama's senior advisor David Axelrod say on Fox News Chicago November 23rd, "I know he's (Obama) talked to the governor (Blag) and there are a whole range of names (for Obama's senate seat)..." Why did Barack deny talking to Blag about this yesterday? Who's telling the truth?

  • What did Obama know about Blag's threats to kill the Trib's $billion deal to sell themselves, and the Cubs with Wrigley Field in tow, if they didn't fire editorial board writers who dared opine against Blag?

  • Where does convicted felon and slum lord Tony Rezko fit into the trilogy of The Messiah and the Blag?

  • What's Baracks chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel's involvement? What's the involvement of other Obamites?

  • When will the infamous 11/10/08 conference call tapes between Blag, his wife, and "others" be released?

  • Why are every democrat and the Lib press calling for the immediate resignation of Rod? I don't recall that happening to the impeached Bill Clinton when he admitted lying to a Federal Grand Jury. What's the hurry?

The "Change" mantra pontificated by The One seems a distant shout from another era as we're sunk back in the swamp of Chicago gangsta politics.

In New York State, disgraced Democrat Governor Spitzer just sold out his wife, children, personal stature, and position. The only question was, what did he ho and when did he ho her?

Bad governor Blag tried selling out the entire country.

Once again, I'm moved to song:

From Jim Croce's "Bad, Bad, Leroy Brown":

Well the North side of Chicago
is the birth place of Guv Blag

And if you go up there
you better beware

Just bring a big cash wad

Now Rod he's threatened writers
You see he stand as governor
All the downtown cops call him criminal spree-er
And the Trib just calls him sir

And its Blag, Blag, Rodney Blag
The baddest guv in the whole damn state
Badder than old King Kong

Meaner than a UFC slate

Now Rodney he a gambler
And he like his senate odds
And he like to thrust his epithets
on of everyone's I Pod
He got friend in oval office
He got his senate seat on sale
But a man named Fitz cuffed on his wrist

And threw his arse in jail

And its Blag, Blag, Rodney Blag
The baddest guv in the whole damn state
Badder than old King Kong

Meaner than a UFC slate

Right now, 38 days before he's to be inaugurated as the leader of the free world, Barack seems to be leaking Teflon all over the place. Even those in the press with leg tingles and fainting spells in the Messiah's presence smell a story too good to pass up.

After all, they're not going to have Bush and Cheney to beat up much longer.

Obama made a deal with the Devil. In Chicago, you're nowhere without the machine. After you dive in, you're trashed once people find out the outrageous illegality you're exposed to while amongst its shifty parts.
