I Know But I Don't Know

Brin is flying down this evening and, right on schedule, the hotter weather comes with her. This is supposed to be the warmest day in the last couple weeks. But then it's supposed to drop back down starting tomorrow.
Just in time for the rain that's been forecasted for Monday through Wednesday.
See what happens when I miss a day? It's scandal time!
Let's see. Barack Obama's senior adviser, David Axelrod, is quoted as saying that Obama talked with Rod Blegojevich about who will fill Obama's vacated Senate seat - and went so far as to say Obama had a "fondness" for certain candidates. This statement came from a Fox News interview back on November 23.
Once the scandal started to break, Obama said he'd had "no contact with the governor" and was "not aware of what was happening".
Axelrod then said he'd been "mistaken" about a meeting. Ben Smith, however, writes here about Obama's visit to the National Governors Association.
It gets even more interesting. Over here, there's an article about a TV station that took down a story in their archive, with the following statement:
Okay, fine. They could have simply put up a disclaimer, but chose to delete the story.
Newsbusters, however, found a follow-up story dated November 8 from the same station:
Obamas transition website, called Change.org, opened a forum yesterday to allow questions from voters, and to have readers vote on the questions. This is supposed to bring uncomfortable questions to the top - questions people wanted answers to. Well, it seems that questions about Blagojevich are being flagged as "inappropriate" and removed or censored. Here's a screen shot of some of the removed questions. IMHO, the third one is pretty harsh, but the other two seem pretty reasonable.
And Barack Obama claims he know nothing about any of this. Kinda like sitting in the same church for twenty years and knowing nothing about his pastor's feelings.
By the way, Blajokevich is refusing to resign.
Maybe he can take this as an omen.
From Fark comes this story, with the following headline:
Al Gore and his huge-ass carbon footprint is not on the list.
Still a few things to do before Brin's visit. I predict there will be some interesting pictures in tomorrow's post.
Be seeing you.
