(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Ooopsie!


Barack Hussein Obama seems to have the Demorat nomination all tied up, his now having the necessary number of superdelegates to allow him to achieve this end.

Hillary Clinton has said goodbye to her campaign staff, but has not bowed out; some theorize there exists some magic tape just waiting to be brought to the light of day which will show Michelle Obama making racist remarks; the Blogosphere is alive with this -- yet there is no bombshell tape made public (this just in: Clinton allegedly to concede on Friday per ABC News).

That is theory; this is fact: Tony Rezko was found guilty today:

(CBS) A jury has found political fundraiser Antoin "Tony" Rezko guilty on 16 of 24 charges in his corruption trial.

U.S. District Judge Amy J. St. Eve will read the verdict 3:45 p.m. at the Dirksen Federal Building.

Jurors sent St. Eve a note Monday saying they could not "decide on one count." The note seemed to suggest the jury had reached verdicts on 23 of the 24 counts against Rezko, but it didn't say that specifically. St. Eve called jurors to the courtroom and told them to listen carefully to each other and make an effort to reach a unanimous verdict. She then sent them to continue deliberations, which began May 13.

The 52-year-old Rezko is accused of scheming to get kickbacks from companies wanting state contracts. He has pleaded not guilty, and defense attorneys say the government didn't prove its case.

For an overview of the case, consult RezkoRama.com.

So what's the problem or the link between Rezko and Barack Hussein Obama? From ABC News:

In sharp contrast to his tough talk about ethics reform in government, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., approached a well-known Illinois political fixer under active federal investigation, Antoin "Tony" Rezko, for "advice" as he sought to find a way to buy a house shortly after being elected to the United States Senate.

The parcel included an adjacent lot which Obama told the Chicago Tribune he could not afford because "it was already a stretch to buy the house."

On the same day Obama closed on his house, Rezko's wife bought the adjacent empty lot, meeting the condition of the seller who wanted to sell both properties at the same time.

Further:

Obama maintains his relationship with Rezko was "above board and legal" but has admitted bad judgment, calling his decision to involve Rezko "a bone-headed mistake."

Rezko's behind-the-scenes connection in the Obama house deal became public as Rezko revealed personal financial details as he sought to post bail.

While Rezko's wife paid the full asking price for the land, Obama paid $300,000 under the asking price for the house. The house sold for $1,650,000 and the price Rezko's wife paid for the land was $625,000.

The explanation?

Obama denies there was anything unusual about the price disparity. He says the price on the house was dropped because it had been on the market for some time but that the price for the adjacent land remained high because there was another offer.

But another niggling little issue?

Obama then expanded his property by buying a strip of the Rezko land for $104,5000, which the senator maintains was a fair market price.

One additional piece which shall likewise be buried, but was exposed by WorldNetDaily:
Sen. Barack Obama employed and continues to employ senior staffers who belong to the Nation of Islam, and the presidential candidate has some "worrying" ties to the controversial group headed by Louis Farrakhan, a former key Obama insider told WND.

So does Obama have a problem? What will the American DEM (Defeatist, Elitist Media) say or write? Or will anyone much care at all?

P.S.
Oh, and here's an article from the 2007 Chicago Tribune, about Obama "bringing home the bacon," so to speak -- something of which is clearly knowledgeable and facile:
SPRINGFIELD - Barack Obama has expressed pride in his ability to bring home old-fashioned pork.During his nearly eight years in Springfield, he tucked special earmarks into massive budget bills to shower small bequests on inner city schools, parks and youth service agencies.

But some of the larger grants Obama sponsored were tied to political allies and show how difficult it is even for politicians advocating reform to avoid the appearance of favoritism as they dole out taxpayer funds. Several non-profit directors, for instance, gave money to Obama's campaigns soon after their allotments were awarded.

Rezko won't matter one bit, not to the Dems that support Obama...

There's no way this will affect him unless HE is indicted and convicted, and even then the Obamites will cry RACISM!!

That 'magic tape' may or may not exist either, and it won't matter to Barack Hussein Obama supporters in ANY way, it may make a difference to middle of the road, undecided fence sitters, but hard core Obama supporters will cry RACISM!!

Anything and everything you and I say about Obama will be met with cries of RACISM, even though you nor I have mentioned his race, and he IS a hell of fine example of African-Americanism, and Islamic-African father that did the same thing that many ghetto fathers do, desert the kids, so, he has a basically good example, of how to be a black man in America, and has thrown that WHITE influence, his grand mother, under the bus...

If Obama is allowed to ascend to the Oval Office, this nation is in the crapper...

Lock and Load...

As I wrote in another location, Obama could place a cocked .45 against the temple of a poor, black beggar and pull the trigger on network television nationwide, and there would be hordes who would scream it was racist CGI.

Speaking of which, I've noticed that some Leftist pundits are ALREADY hooking up the Racist Excuse Train, saying outright that if Obama doesn't win the presidency come November that it's simply because the United States is a predominantly RACIST NATION.

The press will never allow the average American to become aware of this. They will defend the obamination with his life.

It is extremely hard for me to believe that these 2 who are left, or remaing take your pick, are the best America has to offer for the job of president. I smell a Jimmy "The Peanut Brain" presidency. Its time to stock up on precious metals gold, silver, brass and lead. A few corn, wheat and barley seeds probably wont hurt.

And you should see what one year of Sen. Obama's earmarks for the US budget look like...

Obama is dirtier than an off street hooker in Vegas.

Then there is Sen. Obama's connection to a convicted felon who swindled the US and Iraqi people of hundreds of millions of dollars... the guy was the head of the Electricity Ministry in the CPA and had, yes, ties to Tony Rezko. His daughter even phoned Obama's office for help in getting out of jail after his first jailbreak didn't work out.

Strange that his next jailbreak worked...
