Massive dick gets Obama post

Obama's Bolivia adviser Greg Craig (who also happens to represent fugative ex-Pres "Goni" wanted for genocide) just got a promotion. He is now to be tapped for White House counsel, making the likelihood of an Evo-Obama pow-wow ever so slim. As Down South previously noted, Goni's other lawyer Howard Gutman, who called Bolivia's extradition request "part of a political offensive orchestrated by Evo Morales against democracy and those he considers his political enemies", is also an original member of Obama's Financial Committee. With this many WASP jackasses around it would be wise not to call Obama a brother.

Oh great. One more person for me to put on my "FUCK OFF" list for next weekend.

Looking at the cases he took, they are all over the map politically. I wonder if he just chooses cases (like Goni's) based on political notoriety, instead of his own beliefs? The didnt the guy expose the Contra's in the 80's? Makes me think he is not a neocon or something.

In Craig's defense, a lawyer should take the clients who come to him. Sounds more like he's just made a career of defending big dicks (which requires the sense of having one, and usually being one) rather than a political agenda

Clearly Craig is more interested in power and wealth than ideology, but with this many old Clintonites in the Obama admin revitalizing the US-Bolivia relations won't come easily and neither will Goni's extradition.

On the bright side, Evo was on Democracy Now today:

Clicky goodness

Let's hope "Brother Obama" is as willing to talk man-to-man as he is.

Just a low-life, ultra snarky addition to the las line of the entry, Dude. Maybe, until further notice we should refer to the president elect as 'Brother Tom'. Oww! That is low.
As to the excuse of lawyers taking everyone that comes to them, that is just so much bullshit. I'm a legal aid lawyer and I get to help all of the POOR people that the like os Greg Craig turn away every minute of every hour of every day. The lawyers like Greg only HAVE to take the clients who show up on their doorstep with a 7+ figure retainer.
