What did he know and when did he know it?

Wednesday, December 10th, 2008 @ 7:51 pm | Uncategorized

There’s only one way to end this scandal and that is for President elect Obama to hold a prime time press conference telling us that he regrets trying to sell his Senate seat to the highest bidder. Otherwise, how can we be sure of his ability to lead?

    Actually, Barack Obama should get out ahead on this issue. He has a well-deserved reputation for being able to get ahead of any problems, and nip them in the bud fast. He ought to have his staff getting together every scrap of evidence they can — phone logs, letters, e-mails, schedules, &c — concerning his contacts with the governor, and make them public, to prove, as much as it can be proven, that he was completely unaware of the governor’s attempt to sell the seat, and that he had as little contact with the governor as possible for an Illinois politician concerning his other scandals.

    Why not do that? He’s got a big job ahead of himself; why not get this mess out of the way fast?

    Because he had nothing to do with it? Asking somebody to prove a negative is a classic wingnut trick and not playing along is the best course of action.

    So when did you stop beating your wife, Dana? I mean, how can we be for certain unless your wife writes a post on CSPT explaining that Dana Pico is not a wife-beater? You seem pretty reluctant to come forth and answer these troubling concerns.

    Ouch, Dana, you is pwned.

    I mean, it wouldn’t be a bad idea for Obama to do that, but this sounds like you setting up expectations, so that if Obama doesn’t do it, it’s JUST LIKE HE WON’T SHOW US HIS ORIGINAL BIRTH CERTIFICATE!

    You guys would be better off just accepting that Obama’s clean on this one.

  4. Dana Says:

    No, not really; there has been no serious allegation by anyone who actually knows either my wife or me thaty anything like that has ever occurred.

    But we know that Senator Obama and Governor Blagogevich have had some sort of relationship; they had to, simply due to their positions. So, why not do it? It’ll take a few days work by maybe two staffers, to put together all of the records of whatever meetings and telephone calls and e-mails the two men had, make the record public, and be done with it. While you can’t Aprove a negative, you can sure have teh preponderance of the evidence point to a negative. At least Mr Brown agreed that “it wouldn’t be a bad idea for Obama to do that.”

    But Mr Brown also concluded with:

    You guys would be better off just accepting that Obama’s clean on this one.

    I’m sure that you’d like for “us guys” to assume that our next president is as pure as the wind-driven snow on everything, and not question anything he ever does. Sorry, but no, it doesn’t work that way.

  5. jeromy Says:

    Nor does it need to. But when the Feds say Obama had nothing to do with it, and Blago says “Fuck Obama” for wanting nothing to do with it, prudence calls, not assumption.

    No, not really; there has been no serious allegation by anyone who actually knows either my wife or me thaty anything like that has ever occurred.

    So you can’t prove to us that you’re not a spousal abuser? And how can we trust your word? Of course you’re going to say that you’re not. It must be true, then!

  7. jeromy Says:

    Certainly the fact that nobody knows about it yet means nothing! In most cases of abuse secrets are kept from friends and family. We’re just going to have to hear more to clear this up, Dana. And your wife’s testimony doesn’t count either, as you’ve possibly instilled such fear into her that she dare not betray you.

    Or maybe our point is sinking in, Dana…

  8. Not Drudge Says:

    This Dana fellow does seem rather reluctant to clear up this matter of him beating his wife. I personally find his answers insufficient. I’m not saying that he did beat his wife, of course, but his silence does raise rather troubling questions.

  9. hawkI Says:

    It has been reported that Obama is going to relaese anything he has on his or his staffs contact with the Democratic Governor of Chicagostan. Looks like the Mossiah fell for that right wingnut trick. What a maroon.

    You guys shouldnt be so hard on Dana you all know his wife would take him in a fair fight.

  10. Nate W Says:

    Finally Obama will admit, contrary to what the prosecutors have said and what we know about modern science, that he himself is actually Rog Blagojevich.

    Seriously, hawkI, don’t you have a birth certificate to chase after?

  11. Nate W Says:

    PS> why are you tryin to make light of these troubling questions about whether Dana is a spousal abuser. Me thinks thou doth protest too much.

  12. mike g Says:

    At this point I think that if there was something there you would have Republicans all over the television issuing demands and stern warnings.

    Democrats eat their young. They’ll be the first to lock up Lego Hair and throw away the key.
