Illinois Governor arrested, it's about damn time

CHICAGO (CBS) ― Full release from U.S. Attorney's Office:

Illinois Gov. Rod R. Blagojevich and his Chief of Staff, John Harris, were arrested today by FBI agents on federal corruption charges alleging that they and others are engaging in ongoing criminal activity: conspiring to obtain personal financial benefits for Blagojevich by leveraging his sole authority to appoint a United States Senator; threatening to withhold substantial state assistance to the Tribune Company in connection with the sale of Wrigley Field to induce the firing of Chicago Tribune editorial board members sharply critical of Blagojevich; and to obtain campaign contributions in exchange for official actions – both historically and now in a push before a new state ethics law takes effect January 1, 2009.

In other words typical Chicago/Illinois type politics. And it is from this sewer that our esteemed [cough] president-elect, none other than the little messiah himself - B. Hussein Obama, crawled.

And the stink of that corruption surrounds Hussein, it hovers around him like the stench of rotting garbage and taints everything with which he comes in contact.

The reason that his fellow Democrats didn't notice during the campaign was that their sense of smell was burned out by the stink of political purification which filled Washington during the eight years of the Clinton administration.

I could spin a wonderful fantasy about Obama stretching out his hand to put it on the Bible or Koran or whatever at his inauguration only to have an FBI agent snap a pair of handcuffs on it because a fearless US Attorney had followed the trail all the way back to the little messiah, but I won't.

One, because it will never happen. It's not that Obama isn't a criminal and doesn't deserve to go to jail, he does. An honest man or woman simply cannot be elected to office in Chicago today any more than a black woman could have been elected President of the United States in 1830. Sorry if anyone doesn't like the sound of that but it is absolutely and undeniably true.

Two, because if it did it would leave us with President Joe Biden and the less said about that the better.
