DARK CLOUD WATCH....AP reports on Barack Obama's timetable for releasing a review of his staff's internal conversations with the comically corrupt Rod Blagojevich:

Spokesman Dan Pfeiffer [] said the office won't release details of its review until the week of Dec. 22 at the request of prosecutors "in order not to impede their investigation of the governor."

That's Christmas week, when few people will be paying attention and when Obama plans to be celebrating the holiday in Hawaii.

Those crafty Obamaites! They somehow got legendary straight arrow Patrick Fitzgerald to request that they release their report when no one would be paying attention.

Now, I don't have any evidence for this, but I'm pretty sure the Obama team must have gotten to Fitzgerald somehow. There's going to be a dark cloud of suspicion over his head until he accounts for this.
