Those of you not from Illinois are not prepared for the fallout of today's bombshell news of the FBI arrest of the Govenor of Illinois - Rod Blagojevich.
But I am from Illinois, and I know how deep this is going to go. Today is just the tip of the iceberg. Lots of people are going down, including - I predict (and you heard it here first) the highest profile product of Crook County Illinois - Senator Barack Hussein Obama.
First, let me just say "it's about damn time" that our boy-criminal Governor was arrested. He's been corrupt and flagrant about it since day one in office. Good riddance. He should resign tomorrow.
Second, I call on U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald to disclose immediately, certainly before the inauguration, whether his years long investigation into Tony Rezko - corrupt political financier who is now in jail - and Blago revealed any evidence of illegal or unethical behavior by their crony Barack Hussein Obama. Certainly evidence has been alleged. Is it true? If so, we deserve to know before Obama takes office.
Lastly, you'll note that I did not call him President-Elect Obama. No matter what his podium sign says. That's because he has not been elected yet. He does not get elected until December 15th when the Electoral College members meet to officially cast their votes.
Connect the dots, people!
dot - Tony Rezko was a corrupt fundraiser in Chicago, who raised signficant money for prominent Illinois campaigns. In other words, paid to put them in his pocket.
dot - Tony Rezko raised a lot of money for Barack Obama and Rod Blagojevich
dot - U.S. Attorney Fitzgerald has spent several years building his case on Rezko and his payments
dot - U.S. Attorney Fitzgerald indicted and convicted Tony Rezko, who is now behind bars - probably signing like a canary
dot - U.S. Attorney Fitzgerald has now pulled the trigger on an arrest of Blago, based on evidence and wiretaps.
dot - Blago, whose phone has been wiretapped, has talked with Obama a lot in the last year
Connected dots - an indictment of Obama is not out of the realm of possibility (to put it nicely) and in fact is probable.
I call on the members of the Electoral College to not put this country through a constitutional crisis by electing a man who may be arrested and indicted in the next year to serve alongside his cronies in the Chicago political machine! Show courage and do not vote for Obama.
McCain - Palin 2008 lives again!
You heard it here first.
