...and Obama continues to give more of the "Rezko affiliated contributions" to charity. Good luck on that one Senator, since the money goes back at least fifteen years. So the Obamas have this mansion on the "south side of Chicago." Wouldn't that seem a bit out of place for a mansion? Oh, but this one has a huge gate around it. The mansion still seems out of place for the south side of Chicago. It's no secret that the south side of Chicago is home to many drug dealers and much crime. Ask anyone from "downstate Illinois" to describe the south side of Chicago, and they will not paint a pretty picture, I'm sure.
A lot of people outside of Illinois don't know the troubling part of the story about the house deal. Obama said he could not afford both the house and the lot so the Rezkos bought the lot to help him out. Strangely the house went for $300,000 UNDER the asking price, while the Rezkos paid FULL PRICE for the lot. In addition, Obama paid to have a fence designed, but Rezko paid for it, putting it on the property line. Accoring to NBC the lot is now completely fenced in with the only entrance being from the Obama property. Obama maintains the lot, or did until Rezko got indicted and sold it. It sure looks like Rezko made sure Obama got a sweetheart deal. It is hard to understand why the lot but not the house went for full price without some kind of arrangement with the buyer. Also, this all took place after there had been a lot of publicity about the fact that Rezko was under investigation for corruption. This seems somewhat questionable.

Check out She-Devil star Roseanne's personal blog, where Roseanne disses Oprah for not having Hilary on her show. Two weeks ago she wrote Obama is a supporter of "corporate racist anti worker bullshit" and Oprah Winfrey, "plays the race card and the gender card." This time Roseanne is furious at Oprah for not having Hillary on her show, among other things. Hilary deserves to have been able to address the huge female demographic that Oprah's billions came from. How very disgusting, and how very very telling!! There's more, and it's a good read! Way to go Roseanne!

The field of candidates narrowed today as Democrat Dennis Kucinich announced he would end his race for the U.S. presidency. Does this mean we will never know the truth about the existence of UFOs? Seriously though, I hope he will continue to run for president until he wins.

This is Cojo. Remember that guy with the giant teeth, who used to be on The Today Show? Well now he has giant bloated squirrel cheeks! How disappointing that Larry didn't ask him what the heck happened to his bloated cheeks. I don't think the (injected? can you imagine how many syringes) cheeks are a result of the kidney problems, but I could be wrong. I'm sure you will see him again on some show as he promotes his book "Glamour, Interrupted: How I Became the Best-Dressed Patient in Hollywood." If anyone reads it, please let me know, if the giant cheeks are explained! Thanks.

Probably best known for his Best Actor Oscar nominated role in Brokeback Mountain, this handsome young actor has appeared in many films including The Joker, The Brothers Grimm, Ned Kelly, Monsters Ball, and numerous other roles. Besides his Oscar nomination, he had another 13 wins & 28 nominations internationally. He will be sadly missed.
