Saint Blago

From the Chicago Tribune:

Saying the Illinois House impeachment vote against him was “not a surprise,” a combative Gov. Rod Blagojevich defended his work in office and again asserted his innocence of any criminal wrongdoing, vowing to “continue to fight every step of the way.”

At a brief news conference Friday afternoon, Blagojevich sought to undermine the House vote by depicting himself as a public servant who does not deserve to be kicked out of office but rather should be recognized for saving lives.

Doesn’t this guy have TIVO?

From NPR:

Congressman Cliff Stearns, a Republican from Florida, asked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to reconsider any votes scheduled for Thursday. The reason: Stearns is hoping to go to college football’s championship game. Number-two Florida plays number-one Oklahoma in Miami. Pelosi’s office says there won’t be a change in the schedule. Among the issues to be considered: certification of the Electoral College vote that gives Barack Obama the presidency.

DiFi: “You don’t write, you don’t call…”

From The Washington Post:

President-elect Barack Obama said yesterday that he has selected a “top-notch intelligence team” that would provide the “unvarnished” information his administration needs, rather than “what they think the president wants to hear.”

…snip…

On Capitol Hill, Democrats on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence were still stewing over Obama not consulting them on the choice before it was leaked Monday and continued to question Panetta’s intelligence experience. Vice President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr. acknowledged that the transition team had made a “mistake” in not consulting or even notifying congressional leaders, and Obama telephoned committee Chairman Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and her predecessor, Sen. John D. Rockefeller IV (D-W.Va.), yesterday to apologize.

The Bushies Can Kiss Our Tushies

From MSNBC:

There is the prospect of a third member of the Bush family perhaps occupying the White House one day. Former President George H.W. Bush said on “Fox News Sunday” he would like to see his second son, Jeb Bush, become President. Jeb has served as the governor of Florida and is considering a run for the Florida U.S. Senate seat to be vacated by Republican Mel Martinez in 2010. The former President admitted right now would probably be a bad time” for another Bush in the White House, given the low public opinion rankings for the current President Bush. The elder Bush said in spite of that, he wants to encourage his son Jeb’s political aspirations to, “serve the greatest country in the world.”

Houston, we have a problem. This is how Poppy and Bar see their little darlings:

The *Untied* States of America, the Final Installment

Hey comrades amigos hosers mes amis meine Freunde i miei amici mijn vrienden kids! We’ve been exploring what 2010 will look like in the former U.S. of A. after the civil war predicted by Igor Panarin. We’ve covered The Texas Republic and Russian Alaska, the Central North American Republic, and Atlantic America. That, sadly, brings us to the end of our journey, as we consider what it will be like in The Californian Republic (TCR) as it becomes part of China and the new Japanese Hawaii.

Just as the politicians at our previous stops are adjusting to the new reality, so are those in TCR. For example, Senator Bob Bennett of the former state of Utah is taking his ex-state’s values and adapting them to his new environs….
