Burning ants and dancing....

Excerpt from and Alexander Burns article (12/11/2008;

“Over a period of fewer than 10 days, Democrats have seen their nominee go down in defeat in the Georgia Senate runoff — eliminating the prospect of a filibuster-proof majority — lost two winnable House races in Louisiana and witnessed House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.) sink deeper into ethics trouble.

Then there’s the still-unfolding Illinois Senate debacle, which exposed Democratic Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s tawdry attempts to auction off President-elect Barack Obama’s Senate seat and forced Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-Ill.) to hold a press conference Wednesday denying any inappropriate discussions with the governor.”

I’m not going to say I take anything gleefully away from these happenings, but I do see a small shard of light. And with that light, when properly magnified and focused you can burn more than just ants. I also have to agree with many of the bloggers that if there is any way that BHO made it through Chicago Politics corruption free; I’ll gladly put on a tutu and perform the nutcracker in the middle of Millennium Park center stage of the Jay Pritzker Pavillion.

Trust me, I’m not going tutu shopping anytime soon. We’ve already been privy to Rezko and Ayers, there’s more…there’s always more. You simply can’t come out of nowhere, to a national stage without owing/doing favors. (see the 20+ Harvard alumni already on staff in BHO’s transition teams) I wonder what role Oprah has in the new admin? ;-)
