Obama says hello, Fitzgerald - goodbye...

For what it is worth...some of us had almost forgotten about Peter Fitzgerald. Someone who served his state with honor - even if his corrupt state party never quite warmed to him.

Nevertheless the left lunies in Illinois are all GaGa for the new guy and so it goes...

Today in the St. Louis Dispatch the paper ran a full page article on the exit of Fitzgerald and the incoming "rock star" Obama.

The article documents "how much" Obama is winning over - democrats - to sing his praises and then proclaim to the world (er the press) what a studly revolutionary he is...

Emerging from one of his first meetings with Obama, Sen. Frank Lautenberg, a four-term Democrat from New Jersey, had one word to describe the newly elected Illinois Democrat. "Wow!"

"... He's so bright and inspiring," Lautenberg said. "We're all excited about him." In the afterglow of his charismatic performance at the Democratic National Convention, there's already buzz about Obama as presidential material.

And in the wake of their own disappointing election results, Senate Democrats are looking to Obama to take on a high-profile role in their caucus as a spokesman and campaign-money magnet. "Barack Obama comes to the United States Senate with a lot of friends," said Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill. "We're going to be counting on him to help us raise funds, recruit candidates and deliver our message."

Well of course you are Tricky Dicky Durbin...

What is interesting is that it could easily be argued that Obama is the ONLY Democratic Senator that has ANY momentum moving in his direction.

The Dems continued to get pounded in the last round of elections. Obama was the only BIG winner. But let's be honest - he lacked considerably less than impressive competition and until the Illinois Republican Party ever gets its act together - he may not for quite some time.

Obama will be a player - the Dems will cower to him partly because he's African American - and this will cause the myth of his prowess to grow...

I mean - if they are falling all over themselves trying to get on his good side now - how much more will they dance when Hillary names Obama as her running mate in 2008.

He hasn't even cast one vote in the Senate yet - and he appeared on the "possible 2008 Presidential Candidates" list by Gallup earlier this week.

But don't worry - The Obama Factor will be watching every vote he makes in his Freshman Senate term, every act of obstruction, every filibuster he favors, every justice he attempts to spike.

We will need no cameras to demonstrate how far left of center is - we will simply let his votes speak for themselves... SEMPER FI Truthseekers!

Dude... What a sentence.

You should consider hiring Mr. McEditor.

I'll admit that I'm confused by your train of thought. Is you position: (1) Senator Obama is actually influential, and therefore deserving of fear, or (2) that Senator Obama's "prowess" is just a myth, and he is therefore deserving of scorn?

You need to pick one and go with it.

Other than the shoddy logic, poor grammar, poor spelling, and unclear positions, this blog is off to a great start!

Admit it, you guys got nothing yet. You started your little Obama weblog too early.

He IS the fucking american dream, his dad was a goat herder in africa and he grows up to be the ONLY democrat that you gop bastards fear.

I have to agree with Obiter Dictum. This is not only an impressive blog, but the task at hand is important to flatlanders everywhere. The Obamanation is a smarmy smoothtalking actor living up to Georgie's socialist agenda. He doesn't really stand up on any issue; he's much like a John Kerry, just a flappin' in the wind. We don't need a weathervane in Illinois, either. Are dems just too blind or stupid to know it? Just as they're too dumb to realize that Hillary Clinton is after our liberties, as well?

Anyone who's on the short list of George Soros' toadies is on my S*** list, and everyone should be watching him closely. IMHO.
