Gov. Blago attempts to appoint an Obama successor, Democrats say no, race card immediately flies.

They hardly know each other...Just a guy from the neighborhood.

Blago and Obama: They hardly know each other...Just a guy from the neighborhood.

Forget daytime soap operas, the happenings in Illinois are much more entertaining.  Today Governor Blagojavich, under pressure to resign of be impeached from everyone on the planet with any sense of common sense, decided to defy the State Senate and appoint a successor to Barack Obama anyway.  His choice is Roland Burris.  How or why Burris is, as yet, unknown, except that there is little doubt Burris or his people were not caught on tape offering the governor anything (maybe they had the good sense to handle their dealings in person?).

But Senate Democrats, wanting not to be tainted by any more scandal than they already are, have said “thank you, no” to Blago’s pick, stating publicly they will not seat Burris in the Senate.

Immediately the race card was played by Congressman Bobby Rush, well known race-baiter.  Congressman Rush said,

“This is a matter of national importance. There are no African Americans in the Senate, and I don’t think that anyone, any U.S. senator who’s sitting in the Senate right now, wanna go on record to DENY one African American from being seated in the U.S. Senate. I don’t think they want to go on record doing that”…

So again we have a liberal saying that only blacks can represent blacks, thereby only whites can represent whites.  But what do you really expect from the party of tolerance?  Tolerance or something?

Fred Thompson on the economy – some brilliant satire.

This gets off to a slow start but once it gets going it is brilliant.  Fred Thompson’s satire on the economy has the perfect tone and content.  If you watch this and still don’t understand why bailouts are a bad idea, well, there’s really no hope for you.

Dave Barry’s “Year in Review ’08”

If you have some time check out Dave Barry’s look back at the year that was.  Very amusing.  Here are some highlights.

On the Iowa Caucuses

* On the Republican side, the winner is Mike Huckabee, folksy former governor of Arkansas or possibly Oklahoma, who vows to remain in the race until he gets a commentator gig with Fox. His win deals a severe blow to Mitt Romney and his bid to become the first president of the android persuasion. Not competing in Iowa are Rudy Giuliani, whose strategy is to stay out of the race until he is mathematically eliminated, and John McCain, who entered the caucus date incorrectly into his 1996 Palm Pilot.

* On the Democratic side, the surprise winner is Barack Obama, who is running for president on a long and impressive record of running for president. A mesmerizing speaker, Obama electrifies voters with his exciting new ideas for change, although people have trouble remembering exactly what these ideas were because they were so darned mesmerized. Some people become so excited that they actually pass out. These are members of the press corps.
