Name That Party!

Obama Cabinet Appointee Lightning Round:
New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, tapped in December by President-elect Barack Obama to serve as secretary of Commerce, has withdrawn his name for the position, citing a pending investigation into a company that has done business with his state.
"Let me say unequivocally that I and my Administration have acted properly in all matters and that this investigation will bear out that fact," he said Sunday in a report by NBC News' Andrea Mitchell. "But I have concluded that the ongoing investigation also would have forced an untenable delay in the confirmation process."
Drew M. at AOSHQ notices that the word "Democrat" appears nowhere in the MSNBC report.

UPDATE: Video via Hot Air:

UPDATE II: MK Ham: "The Obama transition train just keeps on chugging down the tracks to Smoothville, huh?"

UPDATE III: Under the bus goes another erstwhile friend of Obama.


  1. But why would they want to add the word "Democrat" to the report?...OH I get it so the words "Democrat, Obama and impropriety" don't show in the next news report! Now I get it!

    Now if it had been a Republican, I'm ROFLMAO!

  2. What's even better is, remember when it was "Disgraced Republican Congressmen Mark Foley" and "Longtime GOP Senator Ted Stevens"?

    The media were all giddy about reminding the folks that these guys were Democrats.

    Meanwhile, Kwame Kilpatrick, William Jefferson, Blagojevich, and now Bill Richardson- playing "name that party", we'll always lose.
