Just another crooked Democrat from the same corrupt Chicago political
machine that manufactured Barak "The Messiah" Obama.

"CHICAGO (Reuters) - Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich was arrested on
corruption charges on Tuesday, including trying to sell the U.S. Senate seat
vacated by fellow Democrat President-elect Barack Obama, federal prosecutors
said.

While Obama has long distanced himself from the governor -- who has been
under investigation on other issues for months -- Blagojevich's arrest was
likely to be an embarrassment to the president-elect, who takes office on
January 20

The case shines a light once again on old-style corruption in the Chicago
political caldron from which Obama emerged.

"The breadth of corruption laid out in these charges is staggering," U.S.
Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald, the federal prosecutor, said in a statement.

Blagojevich was also accused of threatening to withhold state assistance to
the Tribune Company in connection with the sale of the Chicago Cubs'
baseball home, Wrigley Field, in order "to induce the firing of Chicago
Tribune editorial board members sharply critical" of him.

The 51-year-old Blagojevich and his chief of staff, John Harris, were
charged in a federal complaint with conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud
and solicitation of bribery. Both were taken into custody at their homes in
Chicago.

In Illinois, the governor selects a successor when there is a mid-term
vacancy in the U.S. Senate. Obama resigned from the Senate soon after
winning the November 4 presidential election.

"FOR SALE" SIGN

In his statement, Fitzgerald said the charges "allege that Blagojevich put a
'for sale' sign on the naming of a United States senator; involved himself
personally in pay-to-play schemes with the urgency of a salesman meeting his
annual sales target; and corruptly used his office in an effort to trample
editorial voices of criticism."

Blagojevich allegedly was caught on court-authorized wiretaps during the
last month.

He was seeking a "substantial" salary for himself at a nonprofit foundation
or union affiliated organization, a spot on a corporate board for his wife,
promises of campaign cash, as well as a cabinet post or ambassadorship in
exchange for his Senate choice, an FBI affidavit said.

It was unclear what would happen now to the selection of a successor to
Obama, although the spot would be certain to go to a Democrat. Democrats,
with independent allies, will hold at least 58 seats in the 100-seat Senate
when the new Congress convenes in early January. A Minnesota Senate seat is
still undecided.

Blagojevich, in his second term, is the latest in a string of Illinois
governors to run afoul of the law. His immediate predecessor, George Ryan,
is in jail following a federal corruption conviction.

"Many, including myself, thought that the recent conviction of a former
governor would usher in a new era of honesty and reform in Illinois
politics," Robert D. Grant, Special Agent-in-Charge of the Chicago Office of
the Federal Bureau of Investigation, said in a statement.

"Clearly, the charges announced today reveal that the office of the Governor
has become nothing more than a vehicle for self-enrichment, unrestricted by
party affiliation and taking Illinois politics to a new low."

HEFTY PRISON TERM POSSIBLE

If Blagojevich is convicted, each mail and wire fraud charge carries a
maximum sentence of 20 years in prison while each bribery charge carries a
maximum sentence of 10 years in prison. Each count carries a maximum fine of
$250,000.

Blagojevich was born in Chicago to a working-class Serbian immigrant family,
working odd jobs and in a meatpacking plant to get through college. He was
elected to the Illinois state House in 1992 and later won a seat in the U.S.
Congress that had been held by another politician who ran afoul of the law,
Dan Rostenkowski.

He became Illinois' first Democratic governor in nearly 30 years when he
replaced Ryan in 2003, on a platform of reform. But his popularity has
descended to an all-time low after wrangles with fellow Democrats in the
state legislature, some of whom had threatened him with impeachment.

Rod Blagojevich was disliked within his own party, was kept at arms length
by Obama, and was unpopular among the electorate. He's also a crook, as
well as a bit of a nutcase, and I'm glad he was busted, as are many
Democrats.

Some Republicans are attempting to take cheap shots in an attempt to
connect him with Obama, but I doubt it will fly. I don't think it will
have much effect on Obama's popularity one way or the other.

Nothing can touch The Messiah. But, just for the record, Obama campaigned
heavily for Blagojevich, even after his initial corruption charges and the
two were think as thieves (pun intended). Obama's own campaign manager
(Axelrod) said Obama had personal conversations with Blagojevich about who
would fill his vacant Senate seat. The fact that Obama lied about having
the conversation won't matter. Obama was also deeply involved with Tony
Rezko who was crooked as a cork screw in his own right, and was
Blagojevich's bag man and he got off scot free on that one too. Obama is up
to his neck in corrupt Chicago politics. Hell bucko, the Chicago Democrat
political machine created Obama. But the sad fact is, Obama is too big to
fail and there isn't any one in the liberal main stream media with the
balls, or interest, to investigate him any way.

It is when the discussion is about a deal between Blab and Obama to get
Obama's choice appointed to his senate seat.

All we may know from the taped conversation is that Obama didn't like
the price of the deal; Blag wanted Health and Human Services and a job
for his wife (ambassador?) It doesn't mean Obama wasn't open to "making
a deal", or that a deal wasn't negotiated and then fell through.

Did you read the part where Obama apparently refused to pay anything for the
appointment so Blagojevich said, "fuck them."

The idea that Obama resigned his Senate seat but had no conversations about

Translation: You don't have your head in the Obama kool aid bucket and I
hate you for it. When you point out how ridiculous it is for me to believe
that Obama sat in Jeremiah Wright's pews for 20 years and never heard a
racist, anti-American or anti-Semitic comment, it makes me realize I'm
stupid. And when you point out that one of Obama's own campaign workers did
a TV interview and said Obama did have a conversation with Blagojevich about
who should fill his vacant Senate seat, it forces me to realize that Obama
just got caught in another lie. I hate you for that and so I ignore these
facts and make a post saying you're a "big slimy snake".

Sorry for pointing out Obama's lies Patrick, and the fact that you believing
them makes you a brain dead idiot.

Irish Mike

Proud to be one of the 55,000,000+ Americans who did not vote for Obama.

What's wrong with Obama having conversations about his replacement in the
Senate?

The annoying thing isn't your right talking-points-esque slant on things -
which I find amusing, especially the reactions to it by a few of the more
vocal libs on here - it's that you keep starting threads when there are
other perfectly good threads on the EXACT SAME SUBJECT that came before
yours. You could confine your discussion in there. In fact you did post in
the other thread, and then started a new one. Knock this shit off Mike.

There has been a caste system on the internet since at least 1971 (when I
had my first involvement to the internet). Probably before that.

cheating, swindling, scamming, scumsucking vermin that infest(ed) the

Yes Russ and Ramashiva :).... it really IS more corrupt than poker

The problem with that, from what I've read here and elsewhere, is that he
could have already sold the seat and still could. I have no clue what would
have happened had the seat already gone to the highest bidder.

A big difference I see is that when a corrupt Democrat gets nailed, pretty
much the entirety of the rest of the Democrats think it's a Good Thing and
are happy to see him depart their ranks.

Corrupt Republican gets busted and the rest of the Republicans circle the
wagons and make excuses. Mike is a prime example.

Well, there is also a problem if Obama knew Blagojevich was trying to
sell the Senate seat and did not report it to federal authorities.

Isn't that some kind of crime?

Obama already lied to the American people on national TV by his denial

If Obama is asked the same question by investigators and he lies again,

Not perjury, but lying to law enforcement agents during investigations is a
crime. That's just one reason why no one with a brain would ever make any
statement to law enforcement other than, "I want to consult with a lawyer
before I make any statement."

PERJURY - When a person, having taken an oath before a competent
tribunal, officer, or person, in any case in which a law of the U.S.
authorizes an oath to be administered, that he will testify, declare,
depose, or certify truly, or that any written testimony, declaration,
deposition, or certificate by him subscribed, is true, willfully and
contrary to such oath states or subscribes any material matter which
he does not believe to be true; or in any declaration, certificate,
verification, or statement under penalty of perjury, willfully
subscribes as true any material matter which he does not believe to be
true; 18 USC

In order for a person to be found guilty
of perjury the government must prove: the person testified under oath
before [e.g., the grand jury]; at least one particular statement was
false; and the person knew at the time the testimony was false.

There's the Joke of The Month. You're not even slightly more

You're merely a gay, Googling twerp.

I meant that lying to investigators would lead to perjury as it did
with Scooter Libby. That's how it could play out. If Obama lied to
investigators and then repeated it under oath at trial, it's perjury.

Of course, in the case of Scooter Libby, he was a main focus of the
investigation. The investigators were looking to nail Libby wih
anything because he was a primary target.

In the case of just an ordinary person who they're questioning, you can
just say that you don't know anything about it. Nothing will happen.
Perjury charges are actually pretty rare, even for people who are
called to the stand and are shown to be inconsistent.

For perjury charges to be brought, it really has to have to do with a
very important, substantive part of the case.

Look at the example of Kato Kalin. He was an on-site witnesss and
pretty much lied about all he did know, but nothing happened with
regard to charging Kalin; because there was nothing in it for the
prosecutors to go after Kalin.

Kalin could have just about denied knowing anything and nothing would
happen to him. It was actually surprising that he talked as much as he
did. From Kalin's point of view, he should have just kept his mouth
shut, completely. But then, he's not the brightest guy in the world,
either.

You need to do some serious research on the Great Plame Kerfuffle.
The entire investigation was set up to find out who outed Plame's
identity to Robert Novak.

At the beginning, Libby was most definitely NOT the primary target.
The Target/Targets were anyone in the Bush Administration who could
have done the Dirty Deed.

Karl Rove was the most desirable scapegoat.
Leftists were positively salivating at the thought of Rove
"frogmarched" off the scene.

Very early on in the investigation, Fitzgerald KNEW that the outer in
question happened to be one Richard Armitage, whose superior was none
other than Colin Powell.

Both of them STFU during the entire investigation.

Fitzgerald continued on until he found someone to convict of
something, anything, namely one Scooter Libby, who lied to Federal
investigators about some aspect of the case.

That is the only conviction that Fitzgerald was able to get.

Just to repeat, it was not Perjury (Lying to a Jury), it was about
lying to Federal investigators (A crime in itself.)

Why an experienced lawyer like Libby would have made that mistake is
still a mystery.

James Hankins was absolutely correct when he told you that.

HonestTaGawd, Travel.
Seriously, you need to do your Due Diligence and get your facts
straight before you blather on.

You're just flat out wrong.
Libby was not a "primary target".
Don't try to weasel out of it by claiming he was only "a target".

There are already enough Liberal Weasels here to go around.

Furthermore.
Hankins was absolutely correct when he pointed out that Libby was not
convicted of Perjury.
Libby was NOT convicted of that particular crime.
Libby was convicted of lying to a Federal investigator.
You were just flat out wrong.

Turbo, Travel is a right wing nut bag.
He's got no interest in honesty, or truth, fact, or most likely scenarios.

You're missing the point, at least the point Travel was making. Perjury is
when the person is placed under oath and lies to a court or other person in
a proceeding (as you have listed).

The lying to a law enforcement officer is different. If an FBI agent comes
to your house and wants to question you about something and you give a
statement wherein you lie, it's a crime, but it's not perjury (because you
are not placed under oath). It's more along the lines of obstruction of
justice, but like I said, the best course is to say nothing other than you
want to speak to an attorney.

Not at all. Travel specifically said "perjury", and then resorted to
his usual preschool retorts when I corrected him.

Which would be about on a par with the chances that you sat in those
Catholic pews all those years and never noticed that the priest were
buggering some of your classmates. But I seem to remember that you are
a stout defender of the Catholic Church. How can that be? I guess it
just goes to show that some of these analogies aren't very accurate, eh?

Patrick, at first I just dismissed you as another anti-Catholic bigot. But
based on your obsession with "buggering" young boys, I now believe you are a
pedophile. I don't know if there are any law enforcement agents who monitor
news groups like this for pedophiles, but if there are I hope they arrest
you. Get some professional help you sick bastard.

He would go to another Catholic church down the street if he knew about

There was a rabbi that was caught on the NBC "Catch A Predator" show.
Does that mean all jews should no longer go to all synagogues?

The difference is that Obama didn't change his venue of worship, but
remained at the racist "Reverend" Wright's particular church for twenty
years. Estimated at 500 visits.

I've been a Catholic all my life and I've lived in about ten different
parishes. Plus, I've been in many other Catholic churches for Mass when
traveling, vacationing, etc. I have never heard any Priest do a racist,
anti-American or anti-Semitic sermon. If I did, I would never set foot in
that particular church again. In my parish church every Mass includes
prayers for all of our political leaders, for peace in the world and for the
safety of the men and women serving in our military.

I'm sorry but no one sits in a church with their wife and children for
twenty years unless they agree with what their pastor is preaching - and
that includes Barack Obama. I have absolutely no doubt that if Jeremiah
Wright's racist, anti-American, anti-Jewish rants had not been made public,
Obama would still be sitting in those pews today. And that speaks volumes
about the man's character - or lack there of.

You carrying IM's water these days?

It's apparently not like you can just go to another Catholic church down
the street, as the problem is endemic in the whole church, at least the
American branch. And while it may not be exactly declared from the
pulpit, when entire dioceses are declaring bankruptcy because of the
burder of lost pedophile lawsuits, I would expect it to be common
knowledge what is going on.

We're not talking about a single priest, but apparently some 4% of them
-- a figure which is approximately 40 times what IM thought the level of
transgression was.

"You carrying IM's water these days?"

I'm addressing your biased vitriol and gross misrepresentation in
characterizing the Catholic Church from your bigoted viewpoint.



"It's apparently not like you can just go to another Catholic church
down
the street,"

Why not?

""as the problem is endemic in the whole church,"
No it isn't. Count the number of convictions and then count the total
number of priests. The difference that remains are the innocent.

"at least the
American branch. And while it may not be exactly declared from the
pulpit, when entire dioceses are declaring bankruptcy because of the
burder of lost pedophile lawsuits,"

You're trying to say that everyone should buy into a left wing created
which hunt frenzy and believe that every priest is guilty of something.



"I would expect it to be common
knowledge what is going on."

It is common knowledge: the left wing has been attacking American
religion. They've been trying to destroy the protestant religion by
pumping up stories of various preachers' occasional sexual
indiscretions for decades. Funny how something like that always makes
the lead story in the media. Not to mention the ridiculing of religion
and religious figures (priests nuns, white reverends etc., etc.) in
movies, television and the general news media. Oh, and on the internet.


> There was a rabbi that was caught on the NBC "Catch A Predator" show.

> Does that mean all jews should no longer go to all synagogues?

"We're not talking about a single priest,"

No, you're just singling-out and targeting the Catholic Church at the
moment.

"but apparently some 4% of them
-- a figure which is approximately 40 times what IM thought the level
of
transgression was."

What we're talking about is your religion bigotry.
What percentage of the Democrats of congress were part of the House
Post Office scandal? Why is there still a Democrat party?


> The difference is that Obama didn't change his venue of worship, but

"So what?"

So, he supports racism against whites. He also supports anti America
doctrine in general. That's what.

LOL. Sorry, no pedophilia here.

Seriously, can't you tell that I'm actually curious why you are so
intolerant of Obama's church conduct while at the same time you are very
forgiving of your own. What should a devout religious person do when
they go to church and hear racist statements or hear of their priests
buggering little boys? Apparently, in your eyes the former is terribly
wrong, the latter not so much so. That seems passing strange.

(BTW, an ignorant racist such as yourself should know how to spell
anti-Semitic. It will tend to camouflage the ignorance.)

I'm not buying it bucko. No normal man logs on to a poker newsgroup and
makes the repeated posts you have about "buggering young boys". I think
you're a pedophile and I hope you're arrested and prosecuted. You really
do need to get some professional help.

I betcha he won't disavow his support of the IRA, either.

What's even funnier is that if you pin him down, he'll start ranting
about all the shit the darn English did to the poor Irish, and how they
deserve whatever retribution they get.

Of course, the African-Americans have always had everything just
PERFECT, no reason for them to want a little retribution, right!

That you wanted to change the subject rather than comment on the subject and
when called wanted to change it again makes me childish?

I cannot follow your logic these days, trout. And I once always once
understood even your most obscure (and often fiendishly clever) diversions.
I am just a passenger on this bus ... but so are you. You are not the
dictator.

I never strayed from the point of this subthread, pickle.

Go back and read the three back-n-forth posts between Patrick and Mike
leading into your own reply. Are they not arguing about whether or not
Mike is being a hypocrite?

And, in your own first entry:

I bet if Mike hear the priest making racist statements and anti American
statements and sermons suggesting buggering little boys, it would not
take him twenty years to walk out.

_______________________________________________________________


are you not also addressing the issue of whether or not Mike is a hypocrite?

So how is my entry, in which I (in pithy manner) argue that he is,
indeed, a hypocrite, a "change of subject"?

Cheers.

Shows how someone can read something a different way. I thought Patrick was
making an analogy with a very interesting (false premise and poor)
comparison with his comment:

"Which would be about on a par with the chances that you sat in those
Catholic pews all those years and never noticed that the priest were
buggering some of your classmates."

I thought his analogy was fatally flawed and therefore did not "see" that
the point he was trying to make was that Mike was a hypocrite at all. I do
not think that what Mike said was in any way comparable to what Patrick
said. So, using his analysis, I commented that unlike Obama, Mike would not
have sat in the church with a priest preaching something like "buggering
some of your classmates" ... I did not think that made Mike a hypocrite at
all. (Mike may indeed be a hypocrite, but I just do not see that in him in
this particular comparison.)

But then, who am I to say what Mike might do or not do. Obama's situation
is a fact ... Mike's situation is a hypothetical. I am not concerned much
with Obama's church attendance ... I think many churches preach a lot of
stuff that I am not interested in ... but I do not see how Mike's opinion
about it proves much of anything.

You make a valid point bucko but what are the odds that any
investigator is
ever going to ask The Messiah that question? The answer is slim or none
-


Irish Mike
.......................................................................
.........

What are you talking about? I made that point, not Hankins.

Hankins stated that Obama knowing about the "deal for senate a
appointment" but not reporting it, isn't a crime, and I stated that it
is if he lies about it to investigators as he did to the Americam
people at a press conference.

Plus how much did Obama pay for his seat? Clearly this is some kind of long

Thanks for the link, Susan. Questions, indeed.

I agree there are questions but I think the article is poorly written.
Did you watch Fitzgeralds press conference today? If not, I recommend
watching it or reading the transcript and you will be able to find the
answers to many of the questions..

I did not see the press conference. If you have a link, I will watch it.

However, are you saying that "x says this is the answer" is all it takes for
you to stop asking questions?

It is not all of the answers but there are a few where "x says this is the
answer." I supported Obama and still support him.. My biggest worry is
Illinois politics will bring him down. I chose to support him because I
did not think he is directly tied into any of the big political families
in Illinois.(Jackson, Daley, Mell(Blago), Jones, Stroger, Lipinski)

No, just Ayers, Wright, Rezko, Pfleger and Farrakhan. But you need not
worry bucko. The Messiah is too big to fail. Short of shooting his closet
racist wife dead, on camera, in front of a dozen (non-liberal) witnesses,
there is nothing that can harm Obama. If people were stupid enough to
believe him when he said he sat in those pews for 20 years and never heard
Jeremiah Wright make a single racist, anti-American or anti-Semitic comment,
they're stupid enough to believe any thing they're told.

That's a pretty lame response, even by your rock bottom standards Patrick.

But not to worry. Just stick your head a little deeper in the kool aid

"Scott" seems to be the last one to ask about Chicago politics.

Rham Emmanuel (to be Obama's White House Chief of Staff) and Obama were
top advisors for Blag's campaign. Obama even continued to endorse Blag
when he was initially "rumored" to be under investigaion a long time
ago for other "problems".

Blag is a former client of Axelrod (who's the head of Obama's campaign
and top advisor) in his earlier, congress days.

How about Ayers?

I mean, DUH!, Obama is up to his neck in Chicago political corruption.

Obama and Blag are both snakes but now Obama is a big snake and Blag is a
little snake. What happens in the real world when a big snake and a little
snake fight? The big snakes kills and eats the little snake. Bye, bye
Blag. BTW, did you hear that Jesse Jackson Jr. was one of the scum bags
trying to buy The Messiah's senate seat? Oh year, the investigators have
him as a bidder. But you liberals need not worry. JJ jr. says it all lies
and no one is going to risk having his old man play the race card on their
ass - especially with The Messiah sitting in the oval office.

Someone should send you an e-mail about posting dumb, after the fact,

It seems they already fell into the trap of Axelrod contradicting
Obama's national TV comments. Seems Obama didn't think of the
possibility that someone on his team already admitted to "being in
contact with Blag".

It's a good thing the first one to ask Obama that question wasn't from
the Justice Department. Good thing for Obama that is.

You know more about it than I. I can tell you about the Longs and the

Sure, man. Probe away. Lots of questions, and, heck, since we're
asking let's get really, really far-ranging, K?

Hell, they probed and questioned Clinton into a corner and got him to
lie about a BJ. Obama should be just more of the same. Let's get him
under oath and ask him all the potentially embarrassing questions!

Probe, probe, probe. Anyone probe deeply into Bush's stock-selling
scandal? Plus, I'm still not convinced that he wasn't actually born in
Jamaica, can someone set my mind at ease about that?

I don't want to see registered copies, I WANT THE ORIGINAL. Nothing
else will satisfy.

There's a huge difference between keeping an eye on someone and what
happened, as an easy example, to Clinton. So don't come back with any
"well, you'd just like us not to ask any questions, wouldn't ya!"
response.

I'd like to ask appropriate questions. Forgive me if, after watching
the frothing at the mouth over the last month because of some crank's
unsupported assertion that Obama wasn't a natural born citizen, I'm not
too eager to jump in with the same crowd on this issue. It's a "cry
wolf" thing, think it through, you'll get there.

Well, one things for certain. Someone asked:

"OT: SCOTUS - > What now tin-foil hat wearing idiots?"

and I guess we got our answer.

You know, it's the venom and sticktoitness departments, where y'all have
Orange beat cold. Obama must be destroyed. By any means necessary. I
saw the far righties say this over and over leading into the actual
vote. I guess they were serious. If this blows over, it'll be
something else. If that doesn't pan out, it'll be something else. And
all a month before the guy even starts the job.

Of course, maybe there will be "hope" at that point. After wunderkind
George, as soon as Obama assumes the presidency, he should pretty much
be able to tell everyone to @#$% off, ignore any action or request from
Congress, and, hell, throw the loudest naysayers in Gitmo just for good
measure. After all, y'all are *terrifying* me into thinking my
soon-to-be-president is a foreign Manchurian-type that's looking to
destroy my entire way of life! You're trying to *terrify* people as a
means of adjusting our politics. Gee, that's awfully close to some
definition of something or other...

Why?

Hypocrisy: rampant.

Clintonesque Witchhunt: ongoing.

It's pretty disappointing, Pickle. If we want to talk about things to
worry about with Obama, let's talk about some of his speeches. Let's
talk about the disparaging tone he gets when he talks about modern
America, and our pursuit of "nice suits, expensive cars". Let's talk
about just how deeply his "spreading the wealth" message goes.

Forget about it. I'm already talking about such with people. Just not
here. Here, we get "Obama was born in Kenya" and "Obama went to school
in BFE" threads.

You keep up the fight, pickle. You seem to be finding a nice home out
on the fringe.

Me, I won't be fooled again. I stupidly allowed myself to be drawn into
those birth certificate threads. As far as this recent lunacy about
selling his seat, well, you know what they say:

"There's an old saying in Tennessee — I know it's in Texas, probably in
Tennessee — that says, fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me —
you can't get fooled again."

You do not have to talk about anything you do not want to talk about, trout.
There is something very wrong about you demanding and ranting about what you
do NOT want to talk about. It is like you don't want anyone to talk about

I take it you are part of the fringe that thinks that Obama had absolutely
no interest whatsoever in who was appointed to fill his seat. Did not know
anything about it. I do not know anything about whether Obama was or was
not "involved" in the selection process, but it seems a tiny bit naive to
believe he was not intimately interested.

da pickle, my dear, dear friend, there was this time, oh, 12/17/2008
6:13 PM or thereabouts, when you let the following craziness loose on
Usenet:

See, this is why it's pointless to talk to you these days. Put up or
shut up, pickle. Show me a single quote that backs up the bullshit you
claim I'm arguing.

You can start by finding *one* quote that even remotely indicates that I
"think that there is no value in 'service people' and only 'producers'
should be allowed to live".

You've gone round the bend, friend. Enjoy it out there on the fringe...
seems you've found your true home.

Cheers.

Perhaps, I spoke too harshly ... however, lately you have been bouncing
around and diverting conversations in a way that I find quite frustrating.
As for the above, you do not seem to understand that people that provide a
service and people that produce a product are equally valuable and
necessary. The person that provides a service might not produce a product
like the farmer or shirt manufacturer, but the service worker must eat and
wear clothes.

Thanks for the link, Susan. I watched. I do not see anything that

I do not "know" scott that well ... I react to the words "the answers" in
situations like this.

I may have misunderstood what he meant. Perhaps, when we see the video or
read the transcript, we will have more information to ponder. (I still
doubt we will have answers.)

The real story here is that Blagojevich apparently wanted to sell the
appointment to the Senate and even though Obama had a favorite for the seat,
Obama refused to play ball.

No, the real story is that it's another one in the Democrat column.
The Governor of New York and the governor of Illinois in a matter of
months.

This clearly indicates that Democrats should be banned from public
office.

To be fair, Spitzer was actually fighting corporate crime, and would have
been a good person to have in office during the current economic shakedown.

Blago, on the other hand, is a worthless, corrupt piece of shit, to the
core.

Clearly. Because no Republican has ever been caught doing anything illegal.

Wrong.. There is no love between Blago & Obama. You have absolutely no
clue about Illinois & Chicago politics... Blago had a very poor
relationship with Democrats in the state and was closely aligned with many
Republicans.

This is shocking. Illinois hasn't had a governor indicted since...
their previous governor, George Ryan, a Republican. I believe he's
still doing time.

I had no idea he clerked for Fast Eddie. The world comes into order. All
