FBI NewsConference – Illinois Governor Blagojevich

December 9, 2008

senate-seat-for-sellIsn’t life a trip? Just yesterday Blagojevich was shooting off his mouth about the Feds wire tapping him was alright, he’s got nothing to hide.  I guess the governor thought the bug would be started yesterday.  Oops.  He even declared to pull out all of Illinois’ government money from the Bank of America over the workers sit-in taking place at a window and door factory in Chicago.  I’m sorry but just how stupid was Blagojevich?  Bartering a good deal for your party to get the most bang for your campaigning buck per the person, I can see.  It’s probably done all the time (the one’s not voted on) but out right trying to sell it for personal gain?  The senate seat of the next President?

Of course, there are those out there screaming conspiracy that the Bank of America had him arrested (do a search on YouTube).  I don’t think that conspiracy really have too much validity.  I doubt 6 or 7 weeks ago the Bank of America told the feds to wire tap the governor.

I’ve said it plenty of times before.   We Americans love our crooked politicians.  How else can you explain Marion Barry?  Of course in the world of the media there is reports of this and that BS trying to tie in President Obama.  Example:  Whether or not President Obama or his camp had any contact with the governor — more guilt by association.  Or,  Rahm Emanuel blew the whistle — even though President Obama’s group denies that story.  Of course that part is being thrown in as pure red meat.  Sorry, but the GOP has no meat on that table.  I doubt, judging by the comments Blagojevich made in reference to President Obama (F##k him), they are fellow criminals.  We all know there is not logic to the wing nut tribe so why bother expecting them to use reason.  I’m sure the intellectual violence they will be committing over this subject will be breathless.

Bottom line, if the governor is a crook then I’m glad he got caught.   I’m sick of the dirt we let our politicians get away with.  I don’t care if they are democrats or republicans, get busted, have a trial and go to prison, period.  Read the indictment here (PDF format).

  1. Blagojevich has been so successful at making himself and his office look ridiculous that about a million people are now able to remember and maybe even spell his crazy name — that’s sort of like an accomplishment, right?
