    My response was to the article and OP. Asking me if I had read it before I commented AND then not commenting on the actual post was rather insulting. Comment on the topic and not me and you may be better received.

    Alright, here is the "article" in question

    Sneed hears rumbles President-elect Barack Obama's chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, is reportedly on 21 different taped conversations by the feds -- dealing with his boss' vacant Senate seat!

    A lot of chit-chat?

    Hot air?

    Or trouble?

    To date: Rahm's been mum. Stay tuned
    And I don't need to remind you of your response.

    I don't get the connection.

    The connection is that this is a far reach to associate Obama. The only way Obama can be held accountable for this, or anyone for that matter, is if they were part of it or had knowledge of it.

    Obama was referenced immediately in the OP. The response connected the article and the OP. I can't believe I'm having to explain this.

    Then we were on the same page after all. I read something differently into it. My bad.

    There may be an ethics issue here at any rate. At the moment, Obama is a private citizen, contrary to what many believe. It might be inappropriate for him to try to influence the selection of his successor in any but the most superficial manner.

    This is fun to watch. Yes, of course Obama knew nothing... like he didn't know Bill Ayers once blew up government buildings, or that J. Wright is a race hating, angry preacher man, or that Tony Rezko was dirty business.

    I get that the Big O is oblivious to wrong doing by anyone near him. He could be a in a bank getting robbed by Michelle and he wouldn't know it.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Sneed is a gossip columnist for the sun-times, just so those of you who are not from Chicago know.

    Most of her crap is pure unadulterated garbage like: "Brittany spears was spotted at Gibsons steak house last night with John McCain... Could there be romance in teh Air???? Stay tuned for more!"

    I take her nonsense for what it is: Pure idioocy.

    I find it funny that some conservatives bitch when people use "rumors" to rant on about the Bush Administration or the U.S., but then go and use "rumors" to bitch about Obama.

    I'm with Jallman on this; if he was involved, information will come out in time. If it does, its a very bad mark against him. If it doesn't, then it doesn't.
