Days before Gov. Blagojevich was charged with trying to sell President-elect Barack Obama's U.S. Senate seat to the highest bidder, top Senate Democrat Harry Reid made it clear who he didnt want in the post: Jesse Jackson, Jr., Danny Davis or Emil Jones.
Rather, Reid called Blagojevich to argue he appoint either state Veterans Affairs chief Tammy Duckworth or Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan, sources told the Chicago Sun-Times.

Reid pressured Blagojevich not to appoint Jackson Jr. to Obamas U.S. Senate seat
Harry Reid hates black people. :O)
oh fer’cryin’out loud this is such a back handed argument it makes me wanna’ puke...TOO MUCH TWIST
As expected, Barry is using the weak tactic of hiding behind that sham internal report.
That pretty much describes the Democratic Party, doesn't it?
Let the twisted twist in the media wind.

Oh MY. I would think this little nugget should make it virtually impossible for Dingy Harry to lead the Senate charge to block Burris.
He was in politicking for the seat up to his eyeballs.
and his choice did not win. Wonder what Harry offered (not enough obviously).
Obviously Obfuscating Blagojevich
too bad Davis turned down Blago
Reid is racist.
The only I am shocked by this entire Rod Blagoevich episode is if it turns out to be the most shocking revelation in the next four years.
The real question is which Democrat party hack was not badgering Blago? The stress must have been incredible. Hopefully Blago will testify against all these miscreants and they end up in prison
Dingy Harry... just another Mistah Charlie... holdin’ a brotha DOWN!
> For a long time, people around the country have held the impression that their local political corruption is just like Chicago’s. It’s not; Chicago corruption is in a league of its own, and anybody who gets involved will get dirty.
Chicago corruption is so corrupt it’s entertaining. I always read John Kass in the Chicago Tribune, have done for over 10 years. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of The Chicago Way and he has his fingers on the pulse. A very entertaining and well-informed columnist. Highly recommended.
No wonder Blago flipped Reid the virtual bird. I would have too.
Reid needs to come up with a report immediately that says he investigated himself and he did nothing wrong.
Yeah, I’m almost feeling sorry for the stupid guy. Heck, if I had all these numbskulls pressuring me for the seat, I’d probably say “What’s in it for me?” too.
Ok, I probably wouldn’t because I’m not a crook. But we all know they are all crooks, ESPECIALLY the Chicago branch of crooks. So it would almost be an anomoly that he DIDN’T ask for something from all the nimrods expecting him to place THEIR pick.
Can’t wait for the tapes!
Harry trying to keep the Black man down. I hear he’s got Bull Connor Jr. posted at the Senate Chamber doors. More popcorn, please.
