King Kwamee has fallen and can’t get up.

Tsk, tsk. And here I thought that the Republicans had a culture of corruption. Good Democrats are never corrupt are they?

What will happen to Detroit? Will Detroit miss Kilpatrick’s inspiring leadership?

Too bad the deal doesn’t include the jail time he so richly deserves.

Wait a minute. Has Mayor Daley been accused or indicted for anything?

No, but a man can always dream, can't he?

I heard on the news that he'll serve 180 days jail time, financial restitution to the city is $1 million. That's what they said on the local news about thirty minutes ago, IEB network.

Of course, this deal in no way absolves him if he's found complicit in, I don't know...the murder of a stripper or something like that.

If McCain is smart he will hammer this connection in ad after ad after ad in Michigan. With an unpopular governor and the connection between Obama enthusiastically endorsing Kwame, the Republicans can show this to be another example of Obama’s poor judgment.

Hey, if the Dems want to continually link McCain with Bush, then the Republicans should link Obama with the many assorted creeps that he supporters.

Maybe in Michigan. I think it’d be better coming from a 527 though. :’)

Taken from the Drudge Report:

He (Kilpatrick) also shook hands with Christine Beatty, his former chief of staff and ex-lover. Beatty’s lawyers got Groner to delay her separate criminal case for a week while she tries to hammer out her own plea deal.

Coming soon to the nieghborhood near you... Obama land - where a little corruption is business as usual - take it from Emmanual Cleaver:

As former Kansas City, MO mayor and current US Congressman for Kansas City, Missouri, the Rev. Emmanuel Cleaver once said: A little corruption is the price you pay for progess. Oh, yes, he is a black Democratic preacher, former Black Panther,....

Cool.

Maybe in the short term future Detroit may not be associated with a Neanderthal that looks, walks and talks like a “thug”.

I know that’s a tall order, because in the Thomas “Hit-Man” Heans Day...

well, I don’t know...

LOOK. I had NOTHING to do with that statement. That was something put out by the SoulMan Young...
