If past performance is any indication, the MSM will view this as a barely interesting one-off, completely unrelated to anybody in Chicago or Washington other than, you know, that guy with the funny name and all the hair:
Antoin “Tony” Rezko was sentenced today to 10½ years in prison for extorting millions of dollars from firms seeking state business or regulatory approval while he was a top fundraiser and adviser to then-Gov. Rod Blagojevich.
Rezko’s daughter broke down sobbing in the courtroom as U.S. District Judge Amy St. Eve handed down the sentence.
“You were engaged in a very, very serious offense, Mr. Rezko” the judge said as she imposed the sentence.
Several family members called out ‘we love you” to Rezko as he was led away.
“That’s what an honest man deserves in this country!” one relative shouted outside the courtroom.
Say, didn’t this Rezko chap have something to do with President Obama and the purchase of his house, and…
Zzzzzz. Instead the media lapdogs, well fed by David Axelrod, will roll over and go back to sleep just like their illustrious predecessor in Silver Blaze.
”Is there any point to which you would wish to draw my attention?”
”To the curious incident of the dog in the night-time.”
”The dog did nothing in the night-time.”
”That was the curious incident,” remarked Sherlock Holmes.
Wait! Look over there — it’s Kim Kardashian!
