Gangsta' Government?

For all the flap surrounding the Gangster Government it might just turn out to be the most appropriate description of Chicago gone DC yet.  How so?  Turns out the shamed Illinois Govn’a, Rod Blagojevich, has issued a subpoena to…..

President of the United States of America Barrack Hussein Obama.

This is awesome.  See, the real point of all of this isn’t if Obama did or didn’t have any influence on who should be selected to fill his seat.  The real point is that when you take a political thug from Chicago and wash him up, move to him Washington and give him a new title he is still….

A political thug from Chicago.

Attorneys for former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich Thursday asked a federal judge for permission to subpoena President Barack Obama to testify at his corruption trial.

And why would they do that?

According to the Chicago Tribune, Blagojevich’s (D) defense lawyers said in a filing that “President Obama has direct knowledge to allegations made in the indictment. In addition, President Obama’s public statements contradict other witness statements.”

See, there is an old saying back on the farm:

“You can take the girl oughta the country but ya can’t take the country oughta the girl.”

Obama grew up, so to speak, in the cesspool that is Chicago and is a product of that system.  Chicago is known for dirty, thuggish and brutal bloody knuckle politics.  The only thing more surprising that Obama would be subpoenad is the belief that at some point something like this wouldn’t happen.

Is the President in trouble?

Also, the president is said to have explicitly recommended current White House adviser Valerie Jarrett for his Senate seat…

This may not be so bad.  After all, the seat was Obama’s, he won it on promises made to his mafia thugs sorry, union member, jeez, voters and so you can say that he should have some say into who replaces him.

The rub?

…a supporter offered a quid pro quo if Jarrett was appointed to the Senate, that Obama kept a list of suitable Senate candidates, that White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel Cheryl Jackson, head of the Urban League, for the seat and that Obama has undisclosed conversations with Blagojevich.

Ouch, that could leave a mark.
