Governor Blagojevich--Old School Chicago

Am I imagining things or did Blago get arrested the day after he was rightly demanding that Bank of America put up or shut after getting TARP bailout $$$ and then spending it bull and not loans--payback? Is it a means of embarrassing and taking the wind out of Barack's sails? Not so facile (despite what you think of Dick Cheney's evil empire, control of he FBI et al). Nope. This is all on Blago. He thinks he's back in the Serbian bad ole days. Look, if you're gonna be corrupt and power mad, do it artfully like the Republicans. Graft and meglomaina aren't rocket science. Some folks seem to make an art of being both evil and stupid. You see the result. Like Mike Vick and Plaxico tainting all black athletes, then this will be used to taint Obama, Dick Durbin, Daley, etc. But ya know, in essence, Barack & Crew are constructively responsible. You know these folk are dirty. You should take them aside and say you are f--ing this up for all of us, so we're gonna put you out of your misery...
See.

I disagree. This is meant as the first in series of forced distractions and attacks. They will then appoint a Ken Starr to harass Barack. This is right out of the "West Wing" tv show it's so obvious.

Wake up!

I am certain that there is union corruption involved here which is a shame because so many people are struggling and out of work. Blagojevich even appeared with those factory workers and thus betrayed them.

I am concerned that this will distract Barack Obama.

I hear while Obama and Valerie Jarrett have nothing to do with this cracker, Jesse Jackson, Jr. might be implicated? Poetic justice.

On the other hand, this is how things go in Illinois. Did the Republican governor do the same sort of thing? Maybe they will share a cell.

I'm not an Obamite, but when I heard this I couldn't help but say, "Awww, shit, can't they let him take the oath of office first".

Obama better get Billy Martin on the phone.

You have to give it to the Republicans. They couldn't beat him in the election, so they are going to paint him and his associates as unethical.

If you thought the Clintions went through it, you can multiple what the Obamas are going to face times 100.

Senet, I see certain wingnuts exploiting this, but I put this all on Blago, not them. And I think Fitzgerald had to work fast. There are also indications under the table that Rahm Emmanuel might have joined in to "dime" the gov.
Plus, I think you stole my West Wing line.

My sources say it's Jesse, Jr. who might need to answer some questions...

Another irony of the Blago Saga is that all this occur red within 24Hrs of the Chicago Tribune´s filing for Bankruptcy -- and there was an issue over the park where the Tribune-owned cubs play.... Smells rotten... I must be getting older because I haven seen this kind of wheel of retribution spin so fast since Eliot Spitzer wrote his blazing column in the Washington Post accusing the Bush Administration as a cozy allie to Predatory lenders. That was Spitzerś not so funny valentine to BushCo in Feb. by March he was politically asassinated over the most egregious of things... sex. A rare thing in politrix.

blagojevich is just one of many corrupt ass politicians here in illinois but more specifically chicago. i hope they get mayor daley next. he has raped this city and the olympics will do nothing to improve that. the olympics will only give a tighter stronghold on the city. i dont know if you all know but chicago is a racist and very segregated city. and where they plan to build an olympic stadium is in the heart of the black community. i'm talking total displacement of an entire black community. not to be mention its where all of our festivals, fairs and summer events are. black folks here can not find jobs. public transportation is a failure and subject to the same gross mismanagement as the govt bodies here. i hope this is just the beginning of a long line of clean up. not to mention that our mayor was the states attorney during the whole john burge rein of terror and did nothing. chicago does not deserve the olympics until we can get our selves together first.
