More Delights from M Obama’s Press Conferences

December 17, 2008

President-elect Obama has given a presser to announce that Arne Duncan is going to be his Department of Education secretary. Aha!, you say, this proves that your theory that M Obama is avoiding the press because of the Blagojevich scandal is wrong! Not so fast, I say. What has changed since last week? M Obama now has the excuse not to answer any questions concerning Blagojevich because Fitzgerald asked him to withhold the information about contacts between his team and Blago until December 22.

(No need to worry, though. We are assured that the super-secret “review affirmed the public statements of the President-elect that he had no contact with the governor or his staff, and that the President-elect’s staff was not involved in inappropriate discussions with the governor or his staff over the selection of his successor as US Senator.” Just as Obama has said when he yet didn’t know whether there have been any contacts between his team and Blagojevich. Really people, in the future, we should just leave that silly fact-checking altogether and simply rely on M Obama’s word. Just as it used to be done during the presidential campaign.)

So until next week, M Obama can appear before journalists and just react to questions concerning the Grand Theft Blago case the way he did yesterday when Chicago Tribune reporter John McCormick attempted to get to hear something concerning the scandal:

“Let me just cut you off, because I don’t want you to waste your question.”

So what sort of questions did Obama take?, you wonder. The same reporter got to ask an acceptable question:

“Do you or [Secretary of Education-designate Arne Duncan] have a better jump shot?”

And you thought I was exaggerating with “Oh, worthy Healer and Redeemer, how does His Oneness enjoy the weather today?”
