    in a few minutes msnbc will be reporting on the verdict in the tony rezko trial. he's was involved in fundraising for obama back in the 80's

    they said if he's convicted he could be an 'embarassment' to obama

    Antoin "Tony" Rezko (born 1955 in Aleppo, Syria) is an American restaurateur and real estate developer in Chicago, Illinois. Beginning in the 1980s, Rezko became involved in fundraising for local Illinois Republican and Democratic politicians, focusing primarily on Chicago-area Democrats and was one of Barack Obama's first financial contributors. After becoming a major contributor to Rod Blagojevich's successful gubernatorial election, Rezko assisted Blagojevich in setting up the state's first Democratic administration in twenty years and was able to have business associates appointed onto several state boards. Rezko and several others were indicted on federal charges in October 2006, for alledgedly using their connections to the state boards to demand kickbacks from businesses that wanted to do business with the state. While the others have plead guilty, Rezko pled not guilty and is currently on trial.

    Coincidence? They've been deliberating for 13 days, DUmmies. You really think that a jury in Chicago would hold off on a verdict just to smear Obama?

    Of course, they all think this has nothing to do with Obama.

    Anyone short of a Siamese twin is but a bit player in the life of their Messiah. He has no voluntary associations with filth, dontcha know? Even his toe cheese happens unwillingly; his poop, by offshore franchise; his dandruff, by contractor; his snot, by proxy.

    He didn't want to reproduce, but he was forced to keep up the appearance of a mortal man....
