Everyone knows how to catch a monkey even if you’ve never had to. Basic concept. Put a banana in a jar and make sure the mouth of the jar is bigger than a monkey paw, yet smaller than the banana. When the monkey gets hold of that banana, he won’t let go, even if it means his hand is stuck in the jar.
Barack Obama finds himself in a similar predicament. His Chicago Fund Trust is the perfect golden banana. It happens to be inside the legal jar created by Thomas Daniel’s ethics investigation findings. You see, Mr. Daniel concluded Obama had used his official title of governor to raise money for a “slush fund” to pay her legal bills. That’s a no-no, silly monkey!
With his findings, Mr. Daniel gave the Naughty Obama Monkey an out… “LET GO OF THE BANANA!” To avoid an ethics hearing, Obama could give back the money raised by the fund. Then, there would be no finding of guilt. Not only did he not let go of the money, his fund trust kept their campaign up and begging — thereby making the banana fatter and more golden.
