Oh boy, here we go.

Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer compares the “Fairness Doctrine”- a thinly veiled attempt to squash conservative talk radio- to pornography.

And let’s not forget about this interview:

The other point of view?  CONTROL CONTROL CONTROL:

Malkin has more, naturally.

Hot Air has the story of the story here.

And Michelle Malkin here.

Here’s the summary and link to the Sun-Times article:

The Illinois Attorney General has opened an investigation into the money granted in a Barack Obama earmark in 2001 to the spouse of a campaign aide, thanks to the investigative work of the Chicago Sun-Times.

A $100,000 state grant for a botanic garden in Englewood that then-state Sen. Barack Obama awarded in 2001 to a group headed by a onetime campaign volunteer is now under investigation by the Illinois attorney general amid new questions, prompted by Chicago Sun-Times reports, about whether the money might have been misspent.

How much would you pay for a gazebo?  $100,000?  Ask Barry.

Obama vowed to “work tirelessly” to raise $1.1 million to help Smith’s organization turn the City of Chicago-owned lot into an oasis of trees and paths. But Obama lost the congressional race, no more money was raised, and today the garden site is a mess of weeds, chunks of concrete and garbage. The only noticeable improvement is a gazebo.

That must be one heck of a gazebo.

And let’s not forget about Tony Rezko donations:

Sen. Barack Obama — $54,416 Rezko has been friends with Obama for 17 years. As a lawyer at a small Chicago law firm, Obama worked on low-income housing deals involving Rezko’s company. Rezko has been Obama’s political patron since he ran for the Illinois Senate a dozen years ago. Obama has apologized for buying a piece of property from Rezko’s wife last year to expand his yard.

My tweaking of the Bush Doctrine from Wikipedia.

The Obama Doctrine

It is an enduring Democratic principle that this duty obligates the left to invent, anticipate and counter racial threats, using all elements of power, before the threats can do grave damage. The greater the threat, the greater is the risk of inaction – and the more compelling the case for taking anticipatory action to defend ourselves, even if uncertainty remains as to the time and place of the enemy’s attack. There are few greater threats than a racial attack. To forestall or prevent such hostile acts by our adversaries, the Democrats will, if necessary, act preemptively in exercising our inherent right of self-defense.

More joy, hope, change, and post-racial comments from the Obama campaign today. The governor of Kansas was stumping for Barry.

The AP reports:

Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius accused Republicans on Tuesday of injecting race into the presidential campaign, arguing that they are using “code language” to convince Midwesterners that Democrat Barack Obama is different from them.

“Have any of you noticed that Barack Obama is part African-American?” Sebelius asked with sarcasm. “(Republicans) are not going to go lightly into the darkness.”

This is from Kansas governor Kathleen Sebelius.  Kansas values?

Hot Air has more coverage here.

The Weekly Standard blog has more:

In August, Obama used a similar line, obliquely referring to his race by saying Republicans would try to scare voters by saying he “doesn’t look like all those other presidents on those dollar bills.” At that time, the campaign first tried to weasel out of the statement by claiming Obama was referring to his relative youth, before chief strategist David Axelrod went on “Good Morning America” and conceded the remark referred to race.

UPDATE:

Michelle Malkin has comments here.

More cheers of unity from the media. CNN’s Cafferty:

The differences between Barack Obama and John McCain couldn’t be more well-defined. Obama wants to change Washington. McCain is a part of Washington and a part of the Bush legacy. Yet the polls remain close. Doesn’t make sense…unless it’s race.

Lovely.

Welcome Fox News readers!  I have a few research posts on Sarah Palin:

Sarah Palin Newsweek article and comments before she was selected to be McCain’s running mate.

Here experience was just fine until McCain selected her.

Sarah Palin, as governor of Alaska, speaking at her home church in Wasilla, Alaska.

This post has the video containing the misquote from the ABC interview and a couple more.

Page one from the Wall Street Journal, for all of those CNN anchors who don’t think Sarah Palin has done anything remarkable:

Focus Turns to Palin Record

Gov. Palin throughout her career has consistently positioned herself as a reformer, a stance that led her to tangle repeatedly, in Wasilla and Juneau, with people she considered opponents, sometimes driving them from office.

“I’m not a member of the permanent political establishment,” the Alaska governor was planning to say in her prime-time address to the Republican National Convention Wednesday night, according to an advance text. She was to blast the press for critical coverage over the past few days then planned to punch back: “Here’s a little news flash for all those reporters and commentators: I’m not going to Washington to seek their good opinion — I’m going to Washington to serve the people of this country.”

“Change you can believe in” has been a popular phrase used by Obama during his campaign.

“Nepotism you can believe in” could be the newest Obama/ Biden slogan.

From ABC news:

The son of Barack Obama’s vice presidential pick, Sen. Joe Biden, is a top partner at a Washington law firm that has lobbied his father’s office, a family tie that could prove embarrassing for a campaign that has positioned itself as fighting lobbyists and special interests in Washington.

When the Obama campaign was confronted with this information (I’m sure they knew this) they gave a hopeful answer from a different type of candidate.  They gave an answer that shows they care about change.  They gave an answer that shows they … think it’s fine if you follow the letter of the law:

“He’s never worked on a client issue where other members of the firm have lobbied the office. Hunter shares expenses not revenues with his partners, so there’s no benefit to him when a partner lobbies. Sen. Biden has been as strong a supporter of ethics reform as the Senate has known, and his office follows all ethics laws right down to the letter.”

Now that’s a new kind of politics, isn’t it?

Following the letter of the ethics law isn’t really the point.  The spirit of the law is what matters.  Otherwise we’ll be defining the word “is” again.

Obama’s main theme for his entire campaign is CHANGE.  Now his VP’s son is a huge DC insider with connections to daddy?

If this is not cronyism, I don’t know what is.

It’s nothing new, and it’s not change.

And Obama? Oh yea, he’s been on the lobbyist take:

Away from the bright lights and high-minded rhetoric of the campaign trail, Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., has quietly worked with corporate lobbyists to help pass breaks worth $12 million.

In his speeches, Obama has lambasted lobbyists and moneyed interests who “have turned our government into a game only they can afford to play.”

“We need a president who sees government not as a tool to enrich well-connected friends and high-priced lobbyists, but as the defender of fairness and opportunity for every American,” the candidate said in his June speech. “That’s the kind of president I intend to be.”
