Scandal at the Bush White House was in short supply for political junkies like myself ...but all that is about to change in the Obama administration. That's my story in today's WorldNetDaily.com column and I am sticking to it.
Let's face it: The Bushes are downright boring. No interns. No former girlfriends accusing President Bush of rape and assault. Mrs. Bush didn't try to socialize medicine. The left-wing nutjobs had to dream up lies about the Bushes that the Enquirer wouldn't even print. So, even though the Bush administration has kept us safe from terrorist attacks since 9/11, I have to admit I love the excitement of the Chicago mob's takeover of the White House. President-elect Barack Obama is rebuilding the Arkansas mafia before our eyes and, just to up the ante, he's giving the keys to the White House to the Chicago Political Machine.
Even before Mrs. Obama decorates the living quarters, scandal is following Obama like stink on a dead skunk. Just this week, the white man's club in the Senate locked out Sen.-Elect Roland Burris, who was duly appointed by Illinois Gov. Rod "Blago" Blagojevich. Blago is in trouble for allegedly trying to sell the Senate seat left vacant by Obama. Still, Blago has the constitutional authority to appoint whomever he pleases.
But Harry Reid, the whiny Democrat from Nevada, locked Burris out of the Senate. The image of Mr. Burris, a black man, being turned away from the halls of the Senate in the driving rain was something to behold.
