Blago and Elvis connection

Had he survived, Elvis Presley would be celebrating his 75th birthday this year. The King lives again at Heritage Auctions’ August 14th Elvis Auction at the Peabody Hotel in Memphis. The auction is topped by the listing of Elvis Presley’s White Knabe Grand Piano which is expected to bring in over $1 million. Other items up for bid include his original 1955 RCA Contract, a signed Graceland Purchase Agreement, personal address book, love letter, jumpsuit and handgun.

And speaking of Elvis and Auction:

Disgraced Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich’s personal belongings are set to go up for auction by the storage facility to which he owes one year’s worth of back rent. Indeed, Boyer-Rosene Moving & Storage, a Chicago-area moving and storage company, plans to sell the contents of seven 5′ by 7′ wooden storage crates he has rented for the past eight years (as seen below), according to Paul Lombardo, Boyer-Rosene’s chief executive officer.

Most of the contents of the crates are documents, but there’s one intriguing item: a life-size statue of crooner Elvis Presley with a microphone in hand.

CNN: Chicago is out? Chicago is out?

CNN really believes in the world they have built.  How difficult it is when reality smacks them in the face.

I know, I think it’s time to move on but I had not seen this and it’s just too good to ignore.  That little bubble they are living in just popped and is nothing but a wet spot on the floor.  Now we know just how much they actually believe in the fictional world they have created.  I guess there was no question in their minds…no question at all that Chicago would get this just because Obama had willed it.  I just read that the New York Times has scrubbed the bragging of Axelrod, Rahm Emanuel, et al, prior to the vote.  It’s just that embarrassing.

Welcome to the world, a world in which Barack Hussein Obama is not bigger than God.
