I must confess, I'm really starting to like Governor Rod Blegojevich

In case you haven't heard, the Illinois Gov went against his party's wishes and appointed Roland Burris to fill Barack Obama's vacated US Sentate seat; a decision that Senate Majority leader, Harry Reid, said the Senate would not honor.  Wow!  Things are just going to get more interesting from here.

This guy, Blegojevich, is bringing an excitement to political scandals that I thought I would never live to see.  He makes Bill Clinton and Richard Nixon look like amateurs.  Unfortunately, this could turn pretty ugly and might end up doing some serious damage to American democracy.  But until that happens, I raise my glass to you, Governor Blegojevich.

The fact that most reporters can't pronounce his name is kinda cool too.

    The rule of law means nothing I guess.

    This guy is a crook and should be treated like one.  I guess we have Bill Clinton to thank for wagging middle fingers at cameras and telling the rule of law to take a hike.

    Sorry, but the deserting coward and the Dark Lord make Bill Clinton look like a guy who overlooked paying a parking ticket on time, when it comes to telling the "rule of law" to go take a hike.

    I guess that explains why Clinton was impeached, but Bush and Cheney weren't, doesn't it?

    Given what an utter joke that was, I wouldn't bray about it too much.

    Having said that, Reid and Pelosi are collaborationists, as far as I'm concerned, and in a just universe they'd hang from the same gallows as the deserting coward and Pork Chop.

    Bill had allagations that could solidly be prooven against him...  And his BS interupted my saturaday morning cartoons :(

    I find it amazing that by 2020 first world countries will be competing to get immigrants.

    And then he was acquitted by the Senate.That must sting, huh? I wonder if you would be as hard on Clinton if he were a Republican. My guess would be no.

    But then again, if Clinton had been a Republican, it wouldn't have been Monica Lewinsky he was screwing around with. It would have been 16 year old male pages like Larry Craig. Seriously, what's with all the Republicans being closet homosexuals?

    Maybe we should drop back a bit to Nixon, and discuss ignoring the law?

    Yes, lets.  Nixon RESIGNED.    He had more class.

    It stung only to the extent that breaking the law and getting away with it sends the message that crime pays.  I'm troubled by the trend that scandals are becoming all too common in politics.  And I guess neither you nor olddaddy read my original post in which I also mention Richard Nixon by name.  But Faxxer was right in his response to olddaddy's post.  At least Nixon had enough class to resign.  Clinton was more concerned about himself than he was about the office of the President.  Nixon also showed more class than Al Gore.  The 1960 election was almost as close as the 2000 election and Nixon could very easily have challenged the outcome in court, just as Gore did.  But he knew that dragging out the election could tear the country apart.  So he conceded graciously.  It's a shame Gore wasn't able to do the same thing.

    You have your facts mixed up on who was screwing who.  Larry Craig is the guy who was trying to solicit sex in an airport bathroom.  I think you are referring to Mark Foley who was sending sexual text messages to a page, not actually engaging in sex with one.  For the congressman who actually did have sex with a male page, you have to look to Gerry Studds (D-MA).  And then there's good old Barney Frank, who's male lover ran a prostitution ring out of Frank's Georgetown residence.  Interestingly, both Craig and Foley were forced from their offices by their own party.  Studds and Frank, however, only received reprimands and were allowed to remain in office.  Frank is still there.  It's too bad too, because if he had been booted back then, we might have avoided the housing debacle we now find ourselves in.

    Well, just when you thought the story of corrupt Illinois politics was over with the impeachment of Blagojevich, guess what?  Senator Burris admitted in a document released today that he was solicited by the Gov's brother for campaign fundraising support shortly before his appointment to the Senate.  This admission contradicts testimony Burris gave in January to the Illinois House impeachment committee.

    Whatever the circumstances.

    The Democrats did not help him for one reason and one reason only.

     

    *He told Obama to piss off.*

     

    Had he instead said Obama is like Jesus. He'd still be in office and every Democrat would be maligning those who attacked him.

     

    SO while I don't care one way or another about him. I respect the man for not being an ass kissing pissant like most of the others.

    oic. i thought you were actually starting to like this guy lolz. yeah, its pretty dissapointing seeing such a high ranking goverment official goes around and start selling senate seat.

    Illinois’ politicians are the most corrupted in the nation.

    It's only a matter of time before Rod Blegojevich talk. He'll bring everyone down including Obama. If not him it will be Tony Rezko or Obama’s birth certificate. There is current over a couple of dozen lawsuits that is challenging his birth. SCOTUS at least have to hear one.

    Tony Rezko the slum lord of Chicago is talking to the feds. He and Obama relationship runs deep. Rod Blegojevich knows a lot of secrets and he will use that to get off the hook.

    There is not enough money in the world to pay me to be the President of the USA. Conservatives will have a fun four years with bashing Obama and the liberals.
