Here's a Real Shocker

According to the AP:
Attorneys for embattled Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick say they won't try to have his travel restrictions lifted in time for him to attend the Democratic National Convention.

Spokesman Marcus Reese says Kilpatrick is focused on "serving the citizens of Detroit, not on presidential politics."

Kilpatrick can't leave the Detroit area as a condition of his bond on two assault charges.
I wonder how many other superdelegates and close friends of the Dalai Bama will not be able to attend the convention without violating the conditions of their parole?

Speaking of Democratic sleaze, neither John "Two Timing Americas" Edwards, nor his love child, appear on the convention schedule.

Nor does the Good Reverend Jesse JacksoN-word, who has spoken at every Democratic National Convention since 1984, presumably because of Secret Service concern over the security of the Democratic presidential nominee's genitals. However, Jackson's son, Illinois Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr., will speak, ironically enough, on the "One Nation" theme today.

Half of the Justice Brothers will be there.

Though it sounds as if Sharpton is threatening to endorse McCain:

"One thing Dr. King meant by that was that I would rather have a president be right rather than just be my color," Sharpton said. "I'd rather have a white president do right than a black one do wrong."
