Illinois Democratic Governor Rod Blagojevich is the latest victim of the Obama machine. Blagojevich was recently caught red-handed trying to sell Obama’s soon-to-be-vacant Illinois US Senate seat. Among the many corruption charges against the Illinois Democrat, the most headline-making was his effort to make money off appointing Obama’s replacement for an interim term until a special election could be held.
According to the charges filed and numerous wire and online reports, Blagojevich was caught on tape saying that a US Senate seat is, “a *CENSORED* valuable thing, you just don’t give it away for nothing.”
Since then, Obama has courageously told the Illinois governor to step down! No, wait, that’s not right… he’s defending him and asking the GOP to back off his buddy. Oh well, at least he’ll be president soon and the people of Illinois won’t have to worry about Obama muddying the reputation of their state by voting “present” anymore.
Maybe Blago and Obama should vacation one last time before Obama’s oath of office. For old time’s sake.
