Governor Rod Blagojevich, May You Rest in Prison
Huffington Post's Sam Stein: The arrest this morning of Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich has sparked intense discussion in the political universe over how great a taint his ethical follies will have both on the next Illinois Senator and Barack Obama. The governor, accused of seeking cash for the political appointment of Obama's Senate replacement, is not a close associate of the President-elect. Indeed, in the affidavit, Blagojevich called Obama a "motherfu**er" for wanting him to appoint an official that the governor either did not like or wouldn't receive money from.
This is what I heard at work this morning from, of course, a hard-line Republican associate who couldn't wait to say that this involves Obama. WHAT!? How does this involve Barack Obama? It doesn't! The Governor of Illinois, like many of his fellow Illinois politicians throughout history, was corrupt as sh*t! He wanted to take bids to see who could high-bid the senatorial seat vacated by Barack Obama. This decision, of course, is mandated by law where as the Governor shall see fit to replace a vacated congressional seat from their state until such a time where an election can put a permanent candidate into that seat. The FBI moved on Gov. Blagojevich this morning after accruing a stockpile of evidence against him including many taped conversations!
All I can say about this is that Gov. Rod has 'big stones', which we all know that when you go to prison they have a habit of turning big stones into little ones! Rod, can you say "prison bit*h"? No? You will soon enough. You deserve it!
I'd like to Thank the Huffington Post for the partial use of their story.
