Hilary Most Admired Woman
Interestingly, little 'sis,' Sarah Palin came in at number two with 11 percent. And sure, Oprah was right behind Palin with 8 percent but Michelle...not so much. She came in with a puny 3 percent, only one point ahead of Stepford Laura with 2 percent.

Caroline Kennedy Out...
If you like to read tea leaves, when a PBS reporter asked Charlie Rangel whom Gov. David Paterson was going to name to replace Hillary, Rangel tried to be cagey but he may have spilled the beans anyhow.
Now remember boys and girls that in spite of all the threats from JJJ, Rangel was a staunch Hillary supporter to the end. Thus, like Matthews, JJJ and Olby, no promotion for CK.
RAFAEL PI ROMAN: Lastly, I know you talked to Governor Paterson about the replacement for Senator Clinton, I was wondering if you have any favorites among the candidates that are being discussed?
CONGESSMAN RANGEL: Well the governor has already made up his mind and he shared it with me, and I support that he's going to select the best possible candidate that he can.
RAFAEL PI ROMAN: When are we going to find that out?
CONGESSMAN RANGEL: When he selects him.

Obama Owes Pastor Rick Warren...
As Howling Latina reported back in November, 2006, Pastor Rick Warren, the evangelical icon and author of the best selling Christian book, 'The Purpose-Driven Life,'" invited Obama to speak at his megachurch. At the time, it was the good reverend who was taking all the heat for inviting the forked-tongue heathen who dared advocate usage of condoms.
So you see, in a perfectly legal quid pro-quo -- not to be confused with the illicit kind that right up front demands the quo before the quid (and yes, we're referring to Gov. Rod Blagojevich, of course), Obama is simply returning the honor.
Back when Obama was trying to win votes, he got to show his wares to Warren's flock. Now Pastor Warren gets a chance to win some souls, hopefully converting a few of the heathens who show up for the jamboree on Jan. 20, including some of the [gasp] godless gays.

Al Franken Will Be the Next Minnesota Senator
[M]ost of Coleman's challenges to Franken's votes were a bust, while some of Franken's efforts to get ambiguous ballots into his own column largely held up.Yes siree. Dems will have 59 votes in the Senate; almost a filibuster-proof majority. Now let's see if those spineless Dems and Obama decide to hold anyone accountable for the shameless lawlessness of the last eight years. By the bye, can we get an "Amen" at the inagural invocation, Rev. Rick Warren?

A legend of a lawman who would prosecute his own grannie if she'd so much as beheld a cushy job at University of Chicago Hospitals should he ever become the next senator from Illinois. Not that there is anything necessarily wrong with that; just ask Michelle.
But with that in mind, don't you just wonder why Fitzgerald didn't follow the trail to see whom Blagojevich could entice with his precious power of appointment?? After all, it's a lot easier to convince a jury when you have official witnesses testifying how cash exchanged hands.
All very strange...
Fitmas Carols from Cannonfire
Yes boys and girls, there are more Fitzmas tunes right here.
Oh, you better watch out
You better watch out
You better WATCH OUT! [I'm telling you why]
The FBI is tapping your phone.
They know when you've been scheming
They know that lips are loose
Blago blabs like he's doing meth
And he's going to cook your goose...

Is Jesse in Trouble...?
Illinois Lost Senate Seat
Guess folks from Michigan will probably soon be asking themselves, "Hell, is this the change we voted for?? And by the way, can you please tell us exactly why Obama resigned when he knew the country was going to hell in a handbasket and his vote in the Senate might just be the one we'd be looking for??"
Indeed, all very good questions. Correct the howler if she's wrong, but Kennedy, Johnson, Humphrey and Gore had the good sense and decency to remain in Congress until the congressional lame duck session was over. You know, just in case their votes were needed. But no such concerns for a man in a hurry to get to the top of the world.
Can't help but wonder, just exactly why was Obama's in such a big hairy hurry...? Other inquiring minds might also want to know.
Jesse Jackson Jr.'s Press Conference - "I did not have any relationship with that man, Gov. Blagojevich"
Yep, Mr. Junior gets his 'just desserts.'

Looks like it's now Jesse's turn to cry...boo, hoo, frigging boo...no Senate seat for his future.

Does Fitz Wanna Talk to Junior???
Oh yes, who can ever forget Junior's sweet little entreties last winter -- just to make sure the candidate we had all been waiting for 'won,' fair and square, of course.
"Many of these guys have offered their support to Mrs. Clinton, but Obama has won their districts. So you wake up without the carpet under your feet. You might find some young primary challenger placing you in a difficult position."
Yes, that's right, boys and girls. it's quite natural that Jessie Junior would be in the thick of the fight for Obama's seat. From The Atlantic via MyDD:
On Dec. 4, Blagojevich allegedly told an advisor that he might "get some (money) up front, maybe" from Senate Candidate 5, if he named Senate Candidate 5 to the Senate seat, to insure that Senate Candidate 5 kept a promise about raising money for Blagojevich if he ran for re-election. In a recorded conversation on Oct. 31, Blagojevich claimed he was approached by an associate of Senate Candidate 5 as follows: "We were approached to `pay to play.' That, you know, he'd raise 500 grand. An emissary came. Then the other guy would raise a million, if I made him (Senate Candidate 5) a Senator."
From the context, it's probably Jesse Jackson. Jr.
"Later on December 4, 2008, ROD BLAGOJEVICH spoke to Fundraiser A. ROD BLAGOJEVICH stated he was "elevating" Senate Candidate 5 on the list of candidates for the open Senate seat. ROD BLAGOJEVICH stated he might be able to cut a deal with Senate Candidate 5 that provided ROD BLAGOJEVICH with something "tangible up front." ROD BLAGOJEVICH noted he was going to meet with Senate Candidate 5 in the next few days."
The only candidate with whom Blagojevich met within that period was Jesse Jackson, Jr.
Well, with fresh attention from Fitz, it doesn't look to good for him. In the blink of a eye, poof; there goes the coveted Senate seat. With the latest scandal, Junior is spoiled goods and will never be appointed. Moreoever, if he were to decide to run in the future, he'd never be able to win a statewide election. Maybe he can find a cushy seat under Obama's bus because you know that's-a-coming.
Following a 90-minute audition meeting today with Gov. Rod Blagojevich, Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. said he was confident in the process the governor is using to make his choice for a Senate successor to President-elect Barack Obama.
Jackson has mounted the most highly visible campaign among several people who are being considered for the Senate post. He said the meeting with Blagojevich amounted to a “very productive conversation, very thoughtful” that covered a broad range of issues.

Wah, ha, ha, ha, ha. First Tweety and Olby of MSNBC get their comeuppance when they're passed over for the "Meet the Press" gig. And now Jesse gets his. Well, it all couldn't have happened to a bunch of nicer boyzz.
