MSM and Supporters of Those Who Live in Glass Houses Shouldn't Throw Stones Either

I went to a PT session today, was fortunate to meet a storage solutions and clutter specialist (and feeling glad about that since I live in a rural area), got groceries and came home to try out my new lumber roll for my chair which sits in front of my workstation.

Check the e-mail, and I get this alert from the NYT:

Spitzer Is Linked to Prostitution Ring

Gov. Eliot Spitzer has informed his most senior
administration officials that he had been involved in a
prostitution ring, an administration official said this

Read More:

Gov. Spitzer, you did your wife wrong more than us. Problem worse is that what you did was illegal.

Spitzer is a backer of Clinton's. No doubt this will dredge up memories of Dick Morris during Clinton's administration, and Monica L. But I am convinced Clinton knew nothing of this, and therefore should not be blamed or linked to his wrongdoing just because Spitzer supported her candidacy (why wouldn't he, Clinton is his senator).

However, the Obamatons are going to have a field day with the news, although the MSM, in collusion with them are overlooking this piece of news that is completely about unethical moves in government:

Obama consulted on health board appointees

March 10, 2008

Sen. Barack Obama was among eight state officials and others consulted about who should be appointed to a state board that later became involved in what prosecutors describe as a fraud scheme, according to a memo from a Democratic official.

The memo was discussed Monday at the trial of Antoin ''Tony'' Rezko, a Chicago businessman who was a prominent contributor to Obama and Gov. Rod Blagojevich. Among other things, Rezko is on trial for allegedly plotting with board member Stuart Levine to split a bribe from a contractor.

Prosecutors say Levine used his position on the health facilities planning board and a state pension board to pressure companies for payoffs. They say Rezko used political clout with Blagojevich to help Levine.

Wilhelm wrote his memo to Susan Lichtenstein, who was on the stand at Rezko's trial for a second day Monday. She was general counsel to Blagojevich in June 2003.


Levine was appointed to the board. He has pleaded guilty to charges in the case and is expected to be the government's star witness against Rezko. Beck has been charged with no wrongdoing in the case.

Wilhelm's memo said ''we worked closely over the past six months'' with eight officials including three state senators, one of whom was Obama.


Of course, Obama may have not done anything wrong, but this smells of corruption, and I have a gut feeling Obama is part of it. But I cannot throw stones at Obama at this point since we're unclear about it.

Politics are nasty, and going to get worse within the Democratic Party before better.

Update: there is a famous line from the movie American President in which the GCD Director tells his lobbyist, "there's never an egg timer when you need one." Less than 24 hours--some dumb Kossack has already started throwing rocks at Clinton, not knowing the difference between the situations.
