Team Obama’s self-absolution

The Lightworker’s disciples can do no wrong:

[T]he Obama team’s review of contacts with Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich will show that Rahm Emanuel had only one phone conversation with Blagojevich. The contact, described as a “pro-forma” courtesy call, came as Emanuel was named Chief of Staff for Obama. Most of the discussion concerned Emanuel’s Congressional seat (which had previously been held by Blagojevich), with only a “passing reference” to the Senate vacancy, according to these sources. No deal for the Senate vacancy was discussed.

“Pro-forma” is Latin for quid pro quo. Ed Morrissey notes that this “one courtesy call” explanation doesn’t include the multiple contacts between Emanuel and Blago’s chief of staff.

UPDATE: Paul Jacob has some Blago-related thoughts.
