Laugh of the Day: 'Obama is not related to the corruption pattern in Chicago'

Except for being intimately involved in campaigns for Rod Blagojevich and being pals with the imprisoned Tony Rezko, he's squeaky clean.

Talk about circling the wagons. Nobody knows anything. Obama is just an innocent bystander, he has nothing to do with the sitting governor, who would have selected his replacement. And who knows, he still might.

Move along, nothing to see here.

Oh wait, buried deep in the 17th paragraph is the name Rezko.
Another connection is Antoin "Tony" Rezko, a Chicago real estate developer and one-time fund-raiser for both men. Obama severed ties with Rezko, who was found guilty of corruption earlier this year, but their relationship caused him some embarrassment during the presidential election campaign.
Obama severed ties? Really? You mean he showed strength of leadership by severing ties with a guy in prison? Wow, what bold vision.
"I don't think that this is going to impact one iota on Barack Obama," said Democratic strategist Doug Schoen. "Given the nature of the problems we're facing in the country, this has no relevance. No impact."
You can bet you last nickel the media will make sure of that.
