Nomination for Seat in the United States Senate

Nominations for, President Elect Obama’s, Seat in the United States Senate- all this sounds like a new game show.

Who is the highest bidder?

Who can walk on water without getting wet?

Watch as they compete;  who can keep straight faced while answering media questions.


The news is filled with tongue clicking, “how dare he” sounds from the media, and President Elect Obama.

All are very concerned with how Governor Blagojevich, whose phone was tapped. Now I have to stop here, I was under the impression he knew this was going on, right!

So -they say-while using his own phone he tried to sell President Elect Obama’s Senate seat. Okay! I have my eyes crossed and I am waiting for the punch line…


Sorry, guys, I have lived in Illinois, specifically Chicago, for most of my life and I have seen, heard and laughed at politics in Chicago, for years.


It is interesting, when the finger pointing starts, the rest of the hen house gathers off to the side clucking their outrage.


How can anyone, in any political capability, not know when one of their own has traveled out of bounds?


There are a few truths in the courts that Governor Blagojevich may be finding out, the biggest and most important:

“You are guilty until proven innocent.”   


So, impeaching Governor Blagojevich, before he has his day in court, has me wondering what is being swept under the rug?  And so fast?


I digress; I want to talk about the empty, Seat in the United States Senate.





I have the perfect person for the job; my husband!


Yes! You heard me right, my husband. I even sent President Elect Obama an email asking how to apply for that position.


He hasn’t answered me yet.


Hey! I do realize that Elizabeth on the View will get her invitation to the White house before anyone responds to me. (If you didn’t see the View this morning she was complaining she didn’t get an invitation this year.)


I decided to post that letter simple as it may be- here. Forward it if you like to President Elect Obama, your Congress person, Governor Blagojevich or even Elizabeth on the View.  


Or, just cross your eyes and call me a “wack job”




President Elect Barack Obama;


     This was taken from one of your web sites:


“Barack Obama and Joe Biden’s comprehensive agenda to empower individuals with disabilities fits in with the campaign’s overarching message of equalizing opportunities for all Americans.
In addition to reclaiming America’s global leadership on this issue by becoming a signatory to — and having the Senate ratify — the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, the plan has four parts, designed to provide lifelong supports and resources to Americans with disabilities. They are as follows:
First, provide Americans with disabilities with the educational opportunities they need to succeed.

Second, end discrimination and promote equal opportunity.

Third, increase the employment rate of workers with disabilities.

And fourth, support independent, community-based living for Americans with disabilities”






     The point of this email, with all the brouhaha going on about your Seat in the United States Senate, my husband and I were talking. That seat needs to be filled by someone that has ‘no ties’ to anyone asking for favors.


My husband is disabled; he has daily seizures brought on by a car accident he did not cause. 


His constitutional right, “for the pursuit of happiness” brings me back to this email.


How can he, my husband apply for that position.  His disability has knocked him out of the running for any position. Giving a person a job, despite his disability, standing next to a disabled person allowing them the pursuit of happiness, even when they are different, is there a place in this government for a person with such a disability?


My husband would need a driver to take him to work and back.

My husband has problems walking and sitting.

He would need time to go over things, just as anyone else would.


My husband has a great memory; it is a little foggy now.

My husband is very intelligent.

My husband has a way with words.
My husband is brutally honest.


My husband needs to find his happiness. 


Again, I ask, how does he, my husband, Michael Baugh, apply for your, “Seat in the United States Senate?”
This isn’t a joke!



Mrs. Gerardine Baugh
