More Speculation from the Blagosphere

Diana West (h/t Larwyn) has a very cool blog over at Town concerning Blagogate, perhaps to be annointed Obamagate in the near future. It is getting all too easy to mock the pissant propagandists, and she uses the taboo term "MSM" (there is nothing "mainstream" about them and they are not "media") but West makes some brilliant points:

>"The real news out of Chicago this week was that President-elect Barack Obama had nothing to do with it.

"And I mean nothing to do with any of it. There was an almost comical aspect to the spectacle of journalists across the mainstream media (MSM) suddenly, as if on command, assuming pretzel positions in a contortionist's effort not to seem at all curious, for instance, about the discrepancy between David Axelrod's recent declaration that the president-elect had discussed Senate-seat replacements with Blagojevich, and Obama's more recent declaration that he had done no such thing.

"The MSM instantly agreed: Obama had nothing to do with it. Such a message took Obama out of the story even before the story itself was clear."

Everything is suspended until Obama is fully seated in the White House? Ya' think?

Patrick Fitzgerald Asks for Delay in Release of Obama Review. Why?
By John Lillpop Tuesday, December 16, 2008
In a shocking departure from “politics as usual,” President-elect Barack Obama announced that a review by his lawyer, Gregory Craig, found that Obama had no direct contact with Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich about the sale of his Senate seat, made vacant as a result of Obama’s purchase of the U.S. presidency.

In another stunning development, Obama reported that his due diligence obsessed lawyer also found no evidence that Obama’s transition aides did anything inappropriate; legal advisers were found to be especially clean.

It had been widely speculated by know it all pundits that Obama’s obsession with CHANGE might cause him to do something really obscene, like actually telling the truth, an unheard of practice among Illinois politicians, especially those raised in the truth-adverse environment of Chicago politics.

Obama promised to make the review public at a later, unspecified date. He claims to have held off because prosecutors asked for a delay and “I don’t want to interfere with an ongoing investigation.”

U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald released a statement confirming the request.

Interesting intrigue seems to be in play here.

If Obama and his minions are really clean, why would Fitzgerald request a delay in the release of an internal review?

Possible answer: Rahm Emanuel.

Rumors about Emanuel are abundant and Obama added to the rumor mill by refusing to answer questions directly about his chief of staff.

Emanuel has kept his own foul mouth shut for nearly a week, which is good for America’s children, but not much help to right-wing zealots looking to derail the Obama Express before the White House is taken over by socialists and communists in training.

Meanwhile, Obama is working diligently to avoid being arrested prior to January 20th, the date upon which he is to be sworn into office, and endowed with the Constitutional power to grant pardons, perhaps even to himself.
