And while the media is trying to tell us why Palin lost the debate, another Obama crony meets the FBI

Larry Walsh, on Obama website – until scrubbing

Twas a bright and sunny day when, according to Obama’s website, Barack Obama had a picnic with a “longtime friend and colleague”:

The family who owns the barn will hold a picnic with longtime friend and colleague of Senator Obama’s, former chair of the Illinois Senate Agriculture Committee, Larry Walsh.

Not the Larry Walsh I used to know?

JOLIET — Two FBI agents spent more than an hour in the Will County Office Building on Wednesday morning as part of an investigation into an elected official.

The official apparently is Walsh. Ryan has — or had — some relationship with Smith Dawson and Andrews, the lobbying firm hired in 2006 at a rate of $10,000 a month to help Will County snare more federal grants and funding. The association is related to his work with the lobbying firm Performance Communication Group.

and we get even some cutesy poker buddies talk

The two men became tight friends during their tenure in the Illinois Senate and bonded over games of poker

“One night, we were playing and things weren’t going very well for me,” Walsh said. “I had a real good hand and Barack beat me out with another one. I slammed down my cards and said, ‘Doggone it, Barack, if you were a little more liberal in your card playing and a little more conservative in your politics, you and I would get along a lot better.’

Countdown for website scrub and throw under the bus has started…Although, with the media brazen cloak of invisibility to all Obama’s faults, that may not even prove necessary anymore.
