Since most people don't understand mathematical algorithms, I'm calling what happened today in Chicago a Blagorithm. You might describe it as a blagasm, or maybe a blagosion, or maybe just a pitiful collapse of western civilization. Actually, it's just Chicago.
Thanks to Blago we are now actually seeing the hot dogs being made up there, and while it's not pretty, it's bizarrely comical, almost as if the whole thing is an episode of the Batman TV series and soon the Joker will pop out and announce he's taken over Chicago (with police chief Fitzgerald tied up in the corner).

Here we have the spectacle of former Obama opponent Bobby Rush predicting that anyone who dares not to seat the Mr. Burris might be participating in a "lynching", setting up the surreal notion that Obama might be leading the mob for strongly suggesting this pick will not stick.
With the curtain now fully pulled back it's prudent to wonder what kind of part Obama had in that pork-laden play. We seem to be left to believe he was some kind of sleeper agent sent in there undercover to clean everything up, playing the game all along to keep up appearances but now ready to drop the hammer on his unsuspecting ex-colleagues.
