Somebody made a big boo-boo.

Obama has been subpoenaed in the Rod “Senate Seats for Sale” Blagojevich trial.  But somewhere an IT has his head on the chopping block, because the redacted subpoena released online was anything but.  A simple copy-paste managed to uncover that which was supposed to be blacked out. Oopsy!

Read up here, here, and here for more details.

BTW, remember back on Dec 9, 2008, when BigO was all, “I have not been in contact with that man. Rod Blagojevich.” Guess again! One of the allegations in the non-redacted redacted subpoena – BigO called Blago on Dec 1, 2008.

President-elect Obama also spoke to Governor Blagojevich on December 1, 2008 in Philadelphia. Source

There’s all kinds of other goodies in the non-redacted redacted subpoena, like information on ties and possible election law violations invovling BigO and Tony Resko.  There are allegations that BigO was totally informed and involved in the selection of his replacement, and somehow Rahm “The Ballerina” Emmanuel is involved in all this too.  Seriously.  Sounds to me like Blago is refusing to be the fall guy here.

Buckle up kiddos.  This is gonna be a bumpy ride.

Just who’s running this show anyway?

Today, Obama signed several executive orders. The first being the order to close Gitmo.  Thing is, he did not know what he was signing! He had to stop and ask his lawyer, not once, but twice, for clarification about what he was signing.  See for your self, at the 0:37 mark, and again at the the 5:11 mark.

Can you imagine, for just one second, what would have happened if Bush had, in front of the press corps, stopped to ask a lawyer a question about the order he was signing?  It would have been headline news! “Bush is clueless! This proves it!”  So, what have you heard about this incident in the media tonight?  Nada. Zip.  Zilch.
