I wonder, who will be the first member of the Dinosaur, Drive-By, Mainstream, Obama-Worshiping, Media to ask the president-elect, Barack Obama, about his long time friend and associate, the now arrested governor of his home state of Illinois, Rod Blagojevich?
A good question would be to Mr. Obama, what party is Gov. Blagojevich in?
In the above link to the article in the bankrupt Chicago Tribune, there is no mention of what party he belongs to.
At least the other newspaper in Chicago, the not-bankrupt Sun-Times, does mention the fact that Gov. Blagoevich is a Democrat. . .in the thirteenth paragraph!
To the credit of The New York Times, they do not wait and mention Gov. Blagojevich is a Democrat in the second paragraph.
I point this out because this is the way that politics is played in Chicago, the hometown of the president-elect.
Back to the main point.
Will an enterprising reporter have the nerve to probe Mr. Obama about the charges against his friend and political ally? Ask whether selling his senate seat to the highest bidder is a good form of democracy? Ask whether or not this corruption will be tolerated in his upcoming administration? And the most important question is will he keep the United States attorney who handed down the indictment against Gov. Blagojevich, Patrick FitzGerald, on the case to its conclusion?
We shall see but if I were the president-elect, I would be very uncomfortable at this time about what Gov. Blagojevich may tell if he makes a deal.
