"Senate-for-sale case threatens new chief of staff"

Barack Obama's designated Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel, is caught up in the Illinois senate seat sale scandal...and it's Karl Rove's fault. I kid you not! Oh, and the Associated Press is some sort of rightwing organ for reporting on this senate seat sale. Such are the delusions of the DUmmies as you can see in this THREAD titled, "Senate-for-sale case threatens new chief of staff." So fasten your seat belts for a trip into DUmmie Fantasyland presented to you in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, looking forward to Karl Rove being blamed for EVERYTHING that goes wrong in the Obama administration, is in the [barackets]:


Senate-for-sale case threatens new chief of staff

[Karl Rove's fault!!! Oopa! I jumped the gun but its coming.]

By BRETT J. BLACKLEDGE and TAMMY WEBBER, Associated Press

CHICAGO – Gov. Rod Blagojevich is legendary in Illinois political circles for not picking up the phone or returning calls, even from important figures like the state's senior senator, Dick Durbin.

But there was always one call Blagojevich regularly took, say his aides, and that was from Rahm Emanuel — his congressman, his one-time campaign adviser and, more recently — and troubling for Emanuel — one of his contacts with President-elect Barack Obama's transition staff.

The friendly rapport Blagojevich and Emanuel shared over the years has suddenly become a troubling liability for Emanuel and the new president he will serve as chief of staff.

Emanuel and Obama have remained silent about what, if anything, Emanuel knew of the governor's alleged efforts to peddle Obama's vacant Senate seat to the highest bidder.

Emanuel did contact the governor's office about the appointment and left Blagojevich with the impression that he was pushing Valerie Jarrett, a close Obama friend, so he wouldn't have to compete with her in the White House for Obama's attention, said a person close to Blagojevich. The person was not authorized to talk about the governor's discussions regarding the vacancy and requested anonymity.

[This sounds like a very likely scenario but not for the DUmmies. They need Rovian twists for this plot.]

I thought the tapes pretty much cleared Emanuel of any possiblity of involvement. This is a Democratic Governor and an Administration the RW would like to see fail. If they didn't undermine Obama, they wouldn't be doing their job.

[And somehow you already heard those tapes so you know that Emanuel is in the clear. But even though you have no proof, you're already blaming the "RW."]

"BO should can Emanuel and replace...with his good bud Rick Warren".. Now that would be fun! Great Idea!!

[The conniption fit that would cause you DUmmies would be worth several dozen DUFUs.]

Ap - All Propaganda. From what I have read lately I can't say the AP is totally unbiased in their reporting anymore. The AP has seemed more than willing to run with any of the 'pseudo' scandals the rightwing wants to throw out there. So I wouldn't worry about this too much. I believe, by request of those prosecuting the case, Obama is holding off reporting what he and his staff know about the situation. Until they are allowed to tell their side I'm sure we will continue to see these none news stories that only opine that maybe possibly, if things are the way the reporter imagines (no proof just imagination) them to be that somebody might be in trouble about something that could be tangentially connected to President Obama. We put up with 8 years of this crap with Clinton (Okay in the end he was stupid enough to actually get caught doing something) and I don't think we should put up with it this time. Whenever so called reporters come up with this stuff we should demand their sources and there evidence otherwise they should be told none to politely to shut the f**k up.

[Except when the source is Richard Armitage. Then you DON'T want to know.]

Blago and Emmanuel have had a fairly close relationship over the past decade or more. I have friends who have/do work for Blagojevic and chances are this info is being leaked from his office. If Blagojevic goes down someone (or someones ;) is going to soften his fall.

[How dare you inject a note of rationality into this thread!]

It's common knowledge that Rove tells AP what to run. There are validated e-mails that confirm this.

[You have 24 business hours to share those "validated e-mails" with us.]

Exactly. AP is about as untrustworthy a source as one could ask for. And not untrustowrthy in the old Soviet mold. They had to come up with a new Propaganda Strategy becausde the so few were fooled by the old Soviet Method.
Now comes Goebbels v2.0, authored by murderer and serial-felon Karl Rove, which contains the new and improved Tyrant's Friend, The Art of Lying Without Technically Lying.itself an amazingly powerful and nakedly evil strategic construct. And AP is a HUGE part of it. Only a fool trusts the AP without some level os skepticism. I'd as soon trust the Nazi Newspapers, Germany circa 1939.

[Yeah, the idea that the highly political Rahm Emanuel, who was a close adviser to Blagojevich, would be in any way involved with the senate seat selection is so beyond the realm of possibility that his must all be a Perfect Rovian Plot.]

awwwe - what a shame this is still going on...but ya know what - since obama's SLAP in the face to us GBLT - I now could care less...! and I'm to busy to lift a finger to help anymore... kharma's a bitch... let us know when you want our help again...HA!

[Revenge of the Lavender Monster!]

THis is being leaked by Blago? Are you high? It's being leaked by Rove.

[But of course. Rove is daily dealing with the machinations of this scandal by faxing false information from a Kinko's in Amarillo.]

Please let it be true! I can't think of anything better right now, than to see rahm go down in glorious flames.

[Expect to be gloriously flamed.]

Oh, perhaps you'd rather have Andy Card back? Or Rove. You're FOOLISH !

[And there's the first scorching flame.]

...a former Consiglieri/Enforcer for the DLC....taking a last ride in the backseat of the limousine..."This ain't personal, Rahm. Its business"....

[Said Karl Klemenza.]

As for a horrible start to the Obama administration; that's already been accomplished by his bringing so many corporatists, neo-liberals, and Clinton retreads on board. Not to mention inviting a misogynist bigot to give the invocation at the inauguration. Nope, Obama has accomplished a horrible start all by himself.

[And who says Obama can't operate on his own?]

I see a RNC coordinated Divide and Conquer action going on. Do not doubt that a fair number of the outraged voices who are demanding Obama's head on a platter are actually Freeper moles who delight in seeing Democrats in disarray before they ever even take over the WH.

[LOUSY FREEPER TROLL!!!]

Two things about this:

[Uh-oh! Standby, DUmmie genius at work:]

1. This is probably what Rove was aiming for when this investgation became public.
2. Big Media (and some DUers) continue to whore for Rove.

[Everything being manipulated by puppetmaster Karl! When does he even get time to sleep?]

Or, none 2 politely:

"...shut the f**k up."

God A'mighty...that these people are actually allowed to VOTE, and the Republic hasn't yet gone down in flames.

If that doesn't prove that America is under the protection of the Divine...

Bilgeman, so true, so very true.

AP under rightwing control! I can't stop laughing.

Next thing you know, they'll be reassuring us that Reuters is a totally unbiased Mideast news source.

Kayinsane has her A-Game of Crazeeeeeeeeeeee™ going with Mike Connell's plane crash!

Mike Connell, who helped in stealing the 2004 election for George Bush, is dead.

in the wee hours of election night 2004 while Americans were sleeping, Mike Connell, Ohio’s Secretary of State Ken Blackwell, Karl Rove, and the RNC were orchestrating the steal for George Bush after taking the counting of the computerized ballots offline for 6 hours to be able to do so. We Americans went to bed that night thinking that John Kerry had a clear win over George Bush, because just about every exit poll across the country had Kerry winning. Nope! The right wing of this country electronically deleted a million or so ballots to keep George Bush in power! Spit!

And now Mike is dead. Karl Rove & George Bush wanted him dead to keep him from talking

there have been NO ACCIDENTS from January 2001 to today under the Bush Regime. 9/11/01 was not A SURPRISE TO GEORGE BUSH BECAUSE HE SAT THERE IN A CLASSROOM READING A CHILDREN’S BOOK WHILE THE NATION WAS UNDER ATTACK. This is NOT a normal reaction to a REAL SURPRISE. He knew this attack was coming (as did his Cabal) and sat there…because by doing so means you give the fire time to burn real good so the house will be completely destroyed which is what you want when you want ALL the insurance money! Spit.

Since Karl Rove has been found to have threatened this guy before his ‘untimely death’, I think it’s time for Rove to be arrested and brought down to the station for questioning.

At least it wasn’t a “suicide” (too many might look suspicious) but a plane crash like what killed both Sen. Paul Wellstone and Missouri Gov. Mel Carnahan, just before their U.S. Senate elections.

What are these pudwhacks going to do when Emperor Zero takes over and they don't have anyone to blame?

I mean, how long ago did Karl Rove resign? And he's STILL manipulating these puling sissies?

Puh-leeeeze!

Radical Redneck, how do you find time to look in Kayinmaine's business? I mean, sure, she's funny in a koo-koo-for-cocoapuffs kind of way but she's gone. She hasn't soiled the waters of the DUmmie FUnnies for some time now. Isn't that enough?

What I want to know is, if Karl Rove is so powerful and the AP is under his evil sway and right-wingers are all Nazis and Bush stole two elections and 9/11 was all an evil government conspiracy and so forth...why did we lose the election to Obama? What gives?
Honestly. Leftists have no sense of logic.

From what I have read lately I can't say the AP is totally unbiased in their reporting anymore.

Translation: The remaining vestiges of even-handedness in media coverage obliged the AP to cover the dirty doings of a Democratic administration (-elect?) rather than pretending it didn't happen and reporting on flowers and pretty birds or something.

They have caused an unwanted intrusion into the fantasy-land created by myself and my fellow liberals in which Obama is not a mere politician but the arbiter of all truth and righteousness.

Their harshing of my mellow must be due to some grave fault or error on their part - they're in the media so "bias" springs to mind.

Oh and it must be something to do with my political opposition who I firmly believe are out to get me and everyone else.

Conclusion: Karl Rove forced the AP into biased reporting. It is impossible that a Clinton-era politician attached to a president-elect from Chicago was involved in corruption.
