Corruption All Around


Rep. Rangel and Gov. Blagojevich are being investigated on major corruption charges. The governor also tried to get the editorialists who were trying to expose his story at the Chicago Tribune fired. These stories are pretty disgusting and push the reputation of politicians into a deeper abyss.
Meanwhile, poor ex-Senator Larry Craig just wanted to have some fun in a men's room and is still losing appeals on his guilty charge. I still don't see the big deal of his actions, especially in comparison to the other dispicable antics that abound in Washington and politics. Plus, men hit on women all the time in bars and other public places. Why can't Larry look for love in the bathroom? My only complaint against him is that he keeps insisting that he's not gay. Larry should just come out of the closet (or bathroom stall). And, if he did come out, he would get to call in sick to work (if he still had a job...which, in my eyes, he still should).

O/T check out Gov. Blagojevich's frontal hairline. At least no one can tell when he furrows his brow. And his brow will become very furrowed when he hears his sentence (and meets his cellmate in prison).

Considering the recent list of Illinois crooks ... Rostenkowski, Ryan, Blagojevich.... I have to think there is a level of corruption in Cook County that knows no bounds. While I don't think the evidence shows that Obama and/or Emanuel have done anything indictable, it is beyond naive to believe they have not dabbled in these backroom dealings. The problem is that convicting these guys does not seem to change the culture in Chicago. The next few months will be interesting to see if more Rezko associates flip to save their hides and if Hot Rod flips..... where will he point the blame? Who is a bigger fish than him?

Don - can you be more specific about what would qualify as "dabbl(ing) in the backroom dealings?"

his brow won't be the only thing furrowed in prison.

There is no way that Obama rose from "community organizer" to state senator to US Senator without doing some favors for the political and criminal bosses that run Chicago. Do you really mean to tell me that he is the only honest politician in Chicago? Hot Rod was hoping for an appointment from Obama for a reason, and it's not because of Obama's strong sense of propriety.

I was close to taking the bait but I can't do it.
