Gibbs on Sestak bribery allegations: If you mention extortion again, I'll have your legs broken

Presidential spokes-drone Robert Gibbs hit the talk show circuit on Sunday to discuss, among other topics, the quid pro quo offered Pennsylvania Senate candidate Joe Sestak. He was not permitted to display his usual incoherence, though, as he was apparently counseled to clam up altogether. Which is hardly a strategy to reassure independents rightfully worried about the rampant allegations of corruption creeping out of the Beltway.

Now even Democrat muckety-mucks are pressing the administration for answers.

Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner (N.Y.) called on the White House on Monday to detail conversations it allegedly had with Rep. Joe Sestak (D-Pa.) to try to convince him to drop his Senate bid.

Weiner said that allegations that White House officials had offered Sestak an administration job in exchange for his dropping of his primary bid against Sen. Arlen Specter (D-Pa.) had become a growing political liability...

“Someone has to help us out here, and I think the White House and Congressman Sestak need to make sure we’re not talking about this next week,” Weiner explained.

In response to this request, President Obama is said to have unleashed his elite Lightning Response Team™, fresh off its successful handling of the gulf oil spill, "Don't Ask, Don't Tell", the withdrawal of Armed Forces from Iraq, and the overall improvement of America's image abroad.

Just who the hell is left that will prosecute anything that Obama does.

That's a trick question (who is left)...

I'd say Eric Holder is left but that would be leaving out the obligatory "dumb mass, sleazeball, jerk, commie, assface and not nice guy".

Or were you not asking a rhetorical question?
