Rahm Emanuel Spoke Directly With Blagojevich

So, first we hear Obama deny that anyone in his staff had any contact with anyone from Blagojevich’s staff over his replacement for the Senate. Then we hear that Rahm Emanuel, Obama’s chief of staff, had direct contact with contact with Blagojevich’s chief of staff about who should replace Obama in the Senate. And now we hear this: Rahm Emanuel, President-elect Obama’s chief of staff, had direct discussions with Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich about Obama’s vacant Senate seat, the Chicago Sun-Times reported. Sources with knowledge of the conversations told the Sun- Times Emanuel spoke with the governor and pushed for

AP Cites Workers ‘Occupying’ Factory as a ‘Rallying Point’

In an article heroically chronicling the efforts of 200 union workers “occupying” their old window and door factory the Associated Press made sure to emphasize how the squatters have given the nation’s grim economy a “rallying point.” Here is how they introduced the story (emphasis added): The nation’s grim economy now has a rallying point: Employees at a window-and-door factory that went out of business have taken over the building in a siege that has come to symbolize the woes of the ordinary worker. Yes, that’s right; the AP sees a group of people who are illegally squatting on private

Obama Drops Windfall Profits Tax

In an act that further proves that Obama believes there is such a thing as too much success he decided to drop his famed windfall profits tax proposal. Now, right now you might be saying “But CP (College Politico), dropping a proposed tax is a good thing and encourages success”. To which I would reply “yes, awesome and intelligent reader, that is true but its not the fact that he dropped the tax proposal which proves he thinks a person or company can be too successful but, rather, its the reasoning behind it. You see, Obama has decided to drop

Richardson joins Obama’s Cabinet

The day after Hillary Clinton accepted the Secretary of State post the fact that New Mexican Governor Bill Richardson will be nominated as Commerce Secretary was leaked. Yup, the man widely (and rightfully) referred to as “Judas” by the Clinton camp will now be working hand in hand with Hillary herself. Brilliant! Forget the “team of rivals” label this is much closer to a “team of liberal who hate each other” shaping up. I guess we will have to wait and see how it plays out. The best we can hope for, i would think, is that they quickly implode

Associated Press Cites Cookie Success as Example of Obama’s Change

No… I couldn’t make this up if I tried: Want an example of the change Barack Obama is bringing to the country? Check out cookie sales at Baby Boomers Cafe in Des Moines. Yes… that’s right, not only is Obama our new savior but he is now our new Pillsbury Doughboy. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l_I3br9m-68 Actually, judging by this comment from the owner of the cafe that Obama has shown his grace upon maybe he is a strange doughboy messiah combination, or, in other words, he is a savory savior: “I think everybody just … thought, ‘Oh, great cookie, great president _ the

Valerie Jarrett Named White House Senior Adviser

In what appears to be a bit of good news Barack Obama named Valerie Jarrett as the White House senior adviser. Now, the reason this is good news has to do with the fact that Obama had previously wanted the absurdly unqualified yes-woman, Jarrett, to replace him in the Senate. To give you an idea of what I mean when I say Unqualified yes-woman here is how The New Republic described her: “Jarrett’s cardinal role on the Obama campaign is to serve as an extension of the candidate. She is Obama’s eyes and ears at meetings and events. When she

Hillary One Step Closer to Secretary of State?

Barack Obama meet with Hillary Clinton Thursday in Chicago in order to talk about her about becoming his Secretary of State. Or at least that’s what some Democratic officials are telling the AP. So perhaps those original rumors were true? And maybe Hillary is now one step closer to being our nations top diplomat. Of course lots of people were saying Hillary would be Obama’s VP pick too and we all know how that turned out. UPDATE: “Her’s to turn down”?

Good News: No Al Gore in Obama Administration

“Former Vice President Gore does not intend to seek or accept any formal position in government,” Gore spokeswoman Kalee Kreider said. “He feels very strong right now that the best thing for him to do is to build support for the bold changes that we have to make to solve the climate crisis.” Finally, some good news. Al Gore will not be the Climate Czar for the Obama administration. Let me be the first to say Thank Goodness. I don’t think I could stand Al Gore becoming relevant again and, besides, Al Gore’s proficiency at producing boredom is far more

Farrakhan: Obama will bring a “New Beginning”

In fact, Farrakhan gave an entire speech about how Obama’s Presidency will bring a new beginning to America. According to a press release coming from the Nation of Islam he was scheduled to give his speech praising Obama today during the Mosque Maryam’s Sunday service. Despite Farrakhan being a delusional nut job he still manages to stumble upon a decent point. Obama will bring a new beginning and it will probably be the kind of beginning that Farrakhan, and other radicals, will rejoice over… but, Farrakhan does miss one thing, the kind of “new beginning” that he speaks of will
