Can Obama Escape Blago TIME Taint?



If so, it will be in spite of cheap guilt-by-association headlines and file photos like this.

Although my friend Jason Linkins — with back-up from Media Matters –was all over this TIME story and even ran the picture, he didn’t mention the visual innuendo. Besides Obama and Blago side-by-side (actually, the physical arrangement sort of makes it look like Obama has Blago’s back), more toxic is the return of the McCain meme, pushing the image of Obama as another Chicago pol.
