This is a new low for Rush Limbaugh. I didn’t think he could get anymore disgusting than what he has in the past. His comments about Prime Minister Gordon Brown are absolutely disgusting. He should have his mouth washed out with soap!!
Ousted Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich and five others were indicted Thursday on charges of scheming to auction off President Barack Obama‘s vacant U.S. Senate seat, pressuring a congressman for campaign money and lying to FBI agents. The 19-count indictment alleges Blagojevich and his aides discussed the possibility he could get a Cabinet post in the new president’s administration, substantial fundraising assistance or a high-paying job in exchange for the Senate seat.
Mr Blagojevich, will you have a news conference to discuss these charges….? Please? Pretty please…? 😀
Rod Blagojevich, you’re about to be indicted on federal corruption charges, what are you gonna do? He’s gone to Disney World!!
Seriously….not kidding at all. 😉
During the plenary session of the G20, President Sarkozy of France and President Hu Jintao of the People’s Republic of China got into a heated disagreement regarding tax havens. Upon hearing their loud voices, President Obama stepped between the two men and urged them to reach a consensus.
The senior adminstration official said that Mr. Obama pulled Mr. Sarkozy aside, took him to a corner, “and discussed possible alternatives,” the senior official said.
Once they arrived at one, President Obama “sent a message to the Chinese” that a counter-offer was on the table. The Chinese spent some time considering the offer. But they took a few minutes.
So Mr. Obama, with the assistance of translators, suggested that he and Mr. Hu have a conversation as well. They, too went to the corner to talk. After a few minutes, Mr. Obama called upon Mr. Sarkozy to join them.
“Translators and sherpas in tow, they reached an agreement,” the official said. “There was a multiple shaking of hands.”

Attorney General Eric Holder yesterday dropped all charges against former Senator Ted Stevens of Alaska, due to gross misconduct by the prosecutors.
Here’s where the big brass balls come in — the Alaska GOP has issued a press release calling for duly elected Sen Mark Begich (D-AK) to resign, so they can have a do-over special election.
The Alaska Republican Party further believes that current Senator Mark Begich should resign his position to allow for a new, special election, so Alaskans may have the chance to vote for a Senator without the improper influence of the corrupt Department of Justice.
The only reason Mark Begich won the election in November is because a few thousand Alaskans thought that Senator Ted Stevens was guilty of seven felonies. Senator Stevens has maintained his innocence and now, even the Department of Justice acknowedges it’s [sic] wrong doing.
Yeah, I’m sure the Alaska GOP will be all about calling for a special election in Alabama when Don Siegelman is cleared.
