The rest of it had me nearly incapacitated. Alas, as one of the commenters pointed out in regards to the above all-caps:
Shocking revelations continue to be revealed in the shocking conspiracy scandal of Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich conspiring, shockingly, to sell president-elect Barack Obama's shockingly vacated Senate seat to the most shockingly highest conspiratorial bidder. Shocking! Speculation swirls as to the precise connection between the dapper president-elect and the disgraced Journey-haired governor. These speculations can now be safely laid to rest.
FDL CAN NOW REVEAL THAT BARACK OBAMA CONSPIRED WITH WILLIAM AYERS TO FORCE ROD BLAGOJEVICH TO SELL A SENATE SEAT TO REVEREND JEREMIAH WRIGHT.
You do realize that this headline is going to get reprinted as fact on Pammy Shrugs… and probably merit at least two hate threads in Freeperland?
Yes, indeedy. Some people can't spot a Poe. But it was still funny as shit.
Also keep a sharp eye out for wingnuts reporting this "transcript" as the real deal:
BLAGO: Hey, come on Rahm, let's not act like I'm a stranger here.
EMANUEL: Did I call you a stranger? If I thought you were a stranger, you think I'd be interrupting my important fucking business to take this fucking phone call?
BLAGO: Hey you don't have to get curt with me, Rahm.
EMANUEL: This isn't me being curt, Gov, this is me being fucking busy. Now what did you call about?
BLAGO: I'm just feeling you out, seeing if Valerie [Jarret] still wants that Senate seat, just wondering what kind of priority that is for the President-Elect.
EMANUEL: Actually, it's not a priority. Valerie's had second thoughts about the job.
BLAGO: What, she doesn't want it anymore?
EMANUEL: She's having second thoughts. You want more details, you ask her.
BLAGO: She won't take my calls.
EMANUEL: Big fucking surprise.
BLAGO: What's that supposed to mean?
EMANUEL: Um, I don't know, what's it supposed to mean governor? A.) You're a fucking crook. B.) You're a fucking asshole. C.) All of the above.
C. Definitely C.
Now let's see how many wingnuts bite, eh?
