Time to weigh in on Blagojovich
Before this story appeared in the nightly news, I never knew who the Illinois governor was or even cared to know since I don't live in the Land of Lincoln. Then, when I heard about it, I was thinking, "My God, Illinois is runned by the mafia." The language, it's appalling coming from an elected official. Gov. Blago wanted to sell Obama's vacant Senate seat to the highest bidder? He considered this seat to be freakin' golden? I take it that he's mad at Pres.-elect Obama for not offering him a cabinet position. So, he said "Bleep him!" If nobody else says this about Blago, I will say it for them. This governor is a scumbag with brain about the size of a peanut. He should stay in jail. But, of course, he's not. A bigger scumbag than him coughed up money to bail him out. After all of this, he wanted to remain as governor although Obama has called for him to resign. He should resign and he should leave the state. Better yet, leave the country. The senate should never be up for sale. He wanted money coughed up from whoever wants it so he can fill up his campaign warchest. The man's definitely a politician and as a politician, he lives the stereotype of what a politician would do. The stereotype of any politician is an elected official who is a crook. Blago is definitely from the Daley machine and to this day, he lives up to the Daley name. For the sake of the people of Illinois, I hope demands and actions are taken to force him out of office. Also, this episode could hurt Obama later on down the road if nothing is done.
