20 Days to Go Folks....Laughing at Blago, Cursing Bush, and some Soulfood....


It's cold and windy here with more snow on the way....yes, I am having Beach Lust something terrible, it would be great to sit at the Beach and blog the end of the Bush Theifdom....sigh....So in case you have not noticed I am indeed back blogging the American Condition with a vengeance....There is plenty down below from the Economic Criminal Demise to Bush's Hidden Escape to Crawford, and his silence about Gaza, to the TVA disaster to other little wonders, so scroll down...plenty there....and at 3 PM the Governor Blagovich is still reeling out the surprises, I am wondering does anyone else think he is like an Extra in the Sopranos? He really deserves an Oscar....and he has managed to distract the Press from the Mess in Gaza and the Economy....Is it just me , or do these last days before 1.20.09 seem to be really dragging, Time passing so slowly ?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Well, there are some cold stormy winds blowing in Illinois tonight....That Narcisstic Rat of a Governor has sklunked to a New Low today , appointing a Senator as he is being Federally Investigated for Selling Obama's Senate Seat....At 3pm he held a press Conference and Announced HIS appointment to the position for the Senate, Roland Burris, I am very confused, as Burris is one of the people that asked for the Governor to step down.....They both stood at the press conference and smiled defiantly...but by the end Burris's looked worried and his hands were shaking at the podium....Maybe it was just good theater....but either way it is a Mess......
First Blagovichs's Presser today....audio is a bit fuzzy ( my apologies)....

And just for More Drama, watch part II with Bobby Rush speaking , and watch Here......
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Soulfood for tonight...Honoring Time Passing....so slowly...
A Year in 40 Seconds....really beautiful...

I saw this on the news earlier and my mouth was hanging open. How does this guy get his pants on every day over those ginormous cojones??

well Hairball..
I have no idea..I was getting ready for work and I thought for sure that I was imagining it....and then there he was - smiling and pompous and loving himself in the camera....unreal.....

I too sat here with my mouth wide open.....stunned.......6-6 came in and laughed...
" Man this guy never quits...Illinois is going to have to pry him out of the office- he might even try to govern from the Klink...."

I think he's trying to add credence to his not-guilty plea. See, if he acts like he's just doing his job, and appoints a guy who was not in on all the quid pro quo conversations, then he adds credence to the idea that he was just talking trash and never intended to sell the office. Plus it puts Harry Reid and other senators in a tough position, which you know he's gotta be loving. So it's win-win, as far as Ballgo is concerned.
