The Bus Rolls Over Another One

Looks like The One knew better than to accept Blagojevich's bribery scheme for senate seat placement. I'm glad of that really ... whether because of principles (yeah right) or because he didn't want to get caught in a scandal before even taking office The One said he'd offer gratitude and nothing more.

This governor is a scum ball of the highest order. I know that most politicians are corrupt in some way but this guy really takes the cake ... almost literally.

"Mike Jacobs, a Democratic state senator and former friend of the governor, suggested that Mr. Blagojevich may have lost his grip on reality.“I’m not sure he’s playing with a full deck anymore,” Mr. Jacobs said. “I think he brought a lot of this on himself. He’s so gifted, but so flawed in a number of fundamental areas. It’s like he dared the feds to come get him.”"

hahahahahahaha I'm sorry but that "not playing with a full deck" thing is funny. Doesn't it describe most of those who run for a public office? You have to be a little 'off' to want that kind of position.

And gifted? Maybe. I don't know. But he sure wanted gifts. Isn't that how politics works in Illinois? I'm sure we're just more subtle here in the Queen's state of Washington.

His approval rating is worse than President Bush's at 13%. Good job Guvna. And does this sound like someone recently elected to the highest office in the land?

"Undistinguished as a lawmaker but with proven likability in and out of Chicago, he seemed hellbent on pushing reform and cleaning house in a state with an embarrassingly overt culture of political corruption. Running on a do-good theme as a candidate of change, he swept into the governor’s office earlier this decade mainly on promises that he would be different..."

Heh...not much experience but likeable and pushing change. Where have we seen that message? I wonder if The One borrowed this campaign promise.

I'm glad The One is distancing himself from this slime ball. But it does raise the issue, once again, of guilt by association. Doesn't anyone else find all of these associates of The One slimey, corrupt, rascist, or vile? What does that say about him? Where is his judgment?

Not guilt by association. Guilt by participation.

It's not an accident that Obama's friends are all racist, crooked, dishonest creeps. That's how politics works in Chicago.

And Obama threw himself into that mix with enthusiasm. He's a part of the machine, just like any other two-bit hack politician. His fans just have enough money to raise him higher.

What SpeakDog said honey. I was done with Nobama with the rev Wright came into the picture. He's just another slimball in a long list of slimballs. White, black, latino. They are all made from the same cloth. Just saying.

Have a great day. :)
