Wait...A Corrupt Chicago Politician?

Say it ain't so! My whole world view is shaken.

Oh wait...no it isn't. A Chicago politician arrested for corruption...the story shocks me about as much as the announcement that "water is wet."
"Blagojevich and Harris, along with others, obtained and sought to gain financial benefits for the governor, members of his family and his campaign fund in exchange for appointments to state boards and commissions, state jobs and state contracts, according to the charges."
You mean politicians are trying to get special favors in Illinois? That just cannot be true. After all this is where the "ONE" is from and he is, after all, all about the Hope/Change.

Is this the kind of Change he meant?

I'm about as shocked as you are. I'm telling you they are all made from the same cloth. They are all elites. Us little people don't count one bit, except during an election. I've always thought that. :)

Perhaps you didn't hear The One toss Bloggy under the bus this morning? He was "saddened" and "sobered" by the news. It's just too delicious.

I only hope that they can bring Daley down too. They are all involved with Rezko, but Obama won't be dragged down with them. They'll all be hoping for pardons.
