Re: Illinois Governor Arrested on Corruption Charges

Let's face it, back scratching and politics go hand-in-hand but this idiot takes it to another level...unfortunately for him it's to a criminal level. I mean, you're under investigation for crying out loud so why would you openly talk about getting something in return for appointing someone to the Senate? I guess he didn't take Crookedness 101 and Movies 101.

Of course, it's the goddamn liberal media bias! In times like this we must rely on Papa Bear and neocons of Fox News to guide us...

Rod O is the new poster boy for the Demo party. Don't think for one second that Obama is any different having cut his teeth in Illinois politics.

Here is something just as criminal. Rod Blagojevich flew to Springfield from Chicago every day at a cost of $8000 a day, but yet had the audacity to shut down some of the the state parks & recreation areas because there wasn't enough money to maintain them.

I asked a simple question and pointed out something I noticed with this article so I'm not sure why you went to another source.
I've said this before First, but media bias - while perhaps true - is an issue you don't understand. Not even a little bit. When people talk about media bias they are not talking about little d's and r's.

Oh yeah there is definite bias, but it does have little to do with Democrats. I took several classes on that exact question. Mass Media and American Politics, great stuff and dispels a lot of this BS.

Re: Illinois Governor Arrested on Corruption Charges

I'm surprised that it took them this long to catch him.

Blagojevich is probably one of the worst governors Illinois has ever had, and he's been corrupt since he was a wee lad. Should never have been elected.

I made a comment about two months before the election that I don't believe George Bush is the worst president I'll have in my lifetime, in fact, I'm quite certain he wouldn't be. This, in part, was fueled by the fact that people like Blagojevich can actually be elected to office. God speed judicial system. Lock him up for a long time.
