This could cost Dems a Senate seat in Pennsylvania, despite the Dem's attempts to turn it into a joke:
Sestak was said to have quipped, “Sestak is actually Slovak for ‘job offer.’ During his routine Sestak suggests he was offered the position of Rahm Emanuel's etiquette coach.And adds to the Dem culture of corruption narrative in DC/NY and Chicago, Illinois. (Auchi's lawyers are at least paying attention, if not the media--going after an Illinois blogger on Dem Senate candidate Alexi Giannoulias' connection to Rezko/Auchi) It could cost them two Senate seats. Wouldn't it be historic if Obama's bleepin golden seat went Red.
Rahm's already given Republican Rep. Darrell Issa the finger at the House gym. He might have to finally leave the White House with this coming up again.
Maybe he can go to work for Bill and Hill.
Some unintended consequences there Bill with this denial? But then you didn't have coattails for your fellow Dems either. It was mostly all about you two. Uh too.
...If Republicans win this fall maybe we can find out the answers to some of these questions.
P.S. Some background from an earlier post:
The Sestak imbroglio reminds everyone of the Blago-Rezko fiasco. Blago, whose trial starts soon. And Rezko, who hasn't been sentenced yet--and no one knows where he is.
Maybe check your wine cellar, Barack.
P.S. I am guest-blogging, along with some other fine bloggers, at Pundit & Pundette this weekend. Lots of great links over there too, as usual.

Bauer replied: "If someone rides up to a convenience store with a sawed-off shotgun and a prior record, I'm not intimidating anybody by calling the cops. . . . If this [Republican] campaign is going to be run in McCarthyite fashion by lawbreakers in an illegal way, they are going to pay a price.Employing fascist measures to defend Barack Obama's long political alliance with a confessed terrorist bomber who targeted our troops, cops, and civil servants in the United States of America is a despicable act.

Bill has been impeached before so he knows how to handle it if he is impeached again.Well, and he already lost his law license, but still makes the big bucks. That must have been some lunch. Maybe he got Obama to promise not to run again (Hey Bill--his promises are about as good as yours, but even so). Hillary's been making noises.
