Free Blago


My,my,my...ain't the blogosphere a buzz with Rod Blagojevich. Much a do 'bout nothing really.

Senate seats have been bought and sold in this nation for as long as I can remember, and probably longer than that. And what senator, past or present, hasn't benefited financially, or hoped to, from their position?

The way I see it, any senator, past or present, who utters one ill word toward the Illinois Governor should be taken out and shot as the hypocrite motherfucker they are.

Good point, Gino. Blago should go to jail just for his hair, though.

Palm boy said...

And historically, being elected to the Senate is an unusual event.

Allan said...

Yeah, but I'm not a senator, so I can utter many an ill word.

Ya gotta admit, though, that Blago is credibly accused of doing this in spectacular fashion. No messing around with little protocols of "discretion" or anything. Nosirree, he's going for broke.

I'm personally kinda bummed that the Tribune evidently blew the sting apart before they got voice of him with Obama or one of those five candidates. Ain't that a shame?

RW said...

His only mention of Obama on the tapes is calling him a motherfucker because he "won't get anything from him but appreciation."

Try another way.

Gino said...

RW: how would he know unless he talked to the obama camp, a talk obama now says never occured.

RW said...

The direct quote was that Obama's people are "not going to give me anything except appreciation. Fuck them." Forget it. There'll be nothing here.

What's more interesting is that it kinda looks like Jesse Jackson's son was the guy trying to scrape up a payment. Stay tuned. THAT'S gonna be the fun one.

btw, Blagojevich was in Congress when the vote went down as to whether or not to go into Iraq. Blogo was the only Democrat from these parts to vote "yes"... so he's just full of bad shit.

Gino said...

i can see jesse sr telling jesse jr 'aint i taught you nuthin about how to do a shakedown?' LOL

RW said...

The elder Jackson calling Obama "that nigger" when he didn't know the mic was on was a classic.

Bike Bubba said...

RW may be right about the immediate issue (the bribery thing), but sometimes when the pigeon starts to sing, they bring up things that nobody ever knew existed.

If the indictment is at all factual, Blago was desperate for a good source of six figure income for himself. I bet that desperation might cause him to sing like a fat lady to avoid a few years of jail.

They say Jesse Jackson Jr. might have been the one offering 7 figures for the Senatorship, BTW. Given that "Jr." doesn't have his dad's money, that would possibly put two race hustling poverty pimps in the pokey.
