"This is Not Camelot"
Corrupt Chicago Machine/SEIU America's Future?

Lou Dobbs Tonight -- CNN -- December 11

John Kass, Chicago Tribune: Are you telling me that he [Obama] wasn't interested in who's going to be in the Senate, replace him in the United States Senate? Are you telling me that the Chicago machine didn't have a vested interest in making sure that the United States Senate stayed in their control? It's the high priests of journalism that basically were in the tank for Obama for so long have just found out that this is Chicago and this is not Camelot.
Griffin (CNN): As for the SEIU, Lou, there is at least a dozen references to the union in the U.S. attorney's complaint, and at several points, the SEIU official allegedly is discussing these kind of deals with Blagojevich and his chief of staff, John Harris. The Service Employees International Union today told us they can't comment further, a request by the U.S. attorney's office -- Lou?
Dobbs: And that is an answer, unfortunately, we're going to hear from a lot of corners not being able to comment on an ongoing investigation, of course, which in most cases is nothing more than a blind, if you will, rather than reality itself.
