Rod Blagojevich, is the former Illinois Governor who tried to sell Obama’s seat in Congress. Obama was asked by the press if he had ever met Gov. Ron Blagojevich.

Barack Obama: “I only saw Rod Blagojevich one time … and that was in the stands and from a distance at a Chicago Bears Football Game.”

To understand the next 4 years, you have to understand “the world according to Chicago”. While Chicago is a city in Illinois , it is almost a completely different country when it comes to politics, with a whole different set of morals and language.

There are only three rules and a Prime Directive which anybody can understand.

You don’t even need an attorney to understand them — and if you need an attorney … Well, you know too much …. so look out for Rule #3!

RULE #1: No matter what you see, hear, or do — you don’t know anybody and you don’t know nothing!

RULE #2: If you capture something on tape or camera — it doesn’t reveal nothing!

RULE #3: If you know what everybody knows in Chicago — well, you still don’t know nothing.

The PRIME DIRECTIVE in CHICAGO … No matter what the vote, Democrats win the election.

Now pay close attention! It’s very simple — we’ll illustrate… Remember, you know nothing.

.. These two? They don’t know each other! They said they didn’t.

.. The fellas in this picture, They never actually met face to face. What fellas? We don’t see nothing!

.. The guy on the left? For all you know he’s Santa Claus. And the guy on the right … well, he’s the Easter Bunny! That’s all you need to know. Make an appointment with your eye doctor … your eyes are lying to you! Ca’pish?

.. Remember Jimmy Hoffa? He knew too much and now …. well, now no one knows where he is. Is the big picture clear? Not these pictures! Remember, you’ve already forgotten them …..

Now, ain’t that simple? They don’t know each other and they never met!
How is that possible? ‘CAUSE THEY SAID SO! And don’t forget it!

So how’s that whole “Hope & Change” thing working out for ya?
