From the press release:
The Republican National Committee (RNC) announced today a new Web video, titled â€œBarackBook.â€ The video highlights Barack Obamaâ€™s ties with the people who helped jump-start his career in politics and those who have helped him along the way, included unapologetic terrorist William Ayers and convicted felon Tony Rezko.
VO: Over the years, Barack Obama has built a social network of shady political patrons and his list of friends continues to grow.
Tony Rezko is his top friend.
Obama was able to purchase his house $300,000 below list price, while Tonyâ€™s wife, Rita, purchased the lot next door for full market value on the same day.
As it turns out, Rezko was also linked to Joe Biden.
Both Biden and Rezko are longtime friends with Joseph Cari, who pled guilty to a federal extortion charge in the Chicago Rezko trial.
Heâ€™s been in Bidenâ€™s list of friends for 30 years and was his Midwest field director in â€™88.
Cari took part in an $850,000 kickback scheme â€“ part of the political fundraising operation for Governor Blagojevich led by Rezko.
And after a few friends posted some links, Biden wrote this on his own wall, â€œAll I know is Joe Cari is a friend, and heâ€™s an honorable guy, but I donâ€™t know anything beyond that.â€
Barack Obamaâ€™s social network has quite a cast of characters.

This is an interesting and humorous “PLAY” on Facebook social networking in the Obama “Chicago crooked” sort of way.
