Senate Seat For Sale on Ebay

It’s Barack Obama’s Senate Seat, For Sale on Ebay! Remember what Governor Rod Blagojevich himself said. “It’s a (bleeping) valuable thing. You just don’t give it away for nothing.”

Ebay is the fairest way to sell Obama’s Senate Seat! Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich can no longer sell it as he’s now in the slammer. Obama’s kids are not old enough to inherit it and Obama’s wife will be too busy acting as First Lady to take it. The rest of Obama’s relatives are not even American citizens, so cannot qualify to serve in the Senate without Congressional intervention. What else is there to do with the Illinois Senate Seat? Elections are just too risky and unpredictable, these days, even with A.C.O.R.N. and other community organizers doing their part.

Obama’s Senate Seat at Ebay

It’s just a Chicago politics thing. Be grateful we don’t have that corrupt Chicago political machine running Washington.

  1. […] The Audacity of Chicago Boyz Governor Sarah Palin thought she was one smart cookie when she put Alaska’s state airplane up for sale on eBay. Well, Ms. Palin could learn a bit of that Chicago audacity from Chicago’s own Chicago Boy governor, Rod Blagojevich. He put the Senate seat of Barack Obama up for sale to the highest bidder, or so federal prosecutors claim. (Chuckle – It actually made it to eBay, even though it has now been removed.) […]

    I’m glad you took down the reference to “Lincoln’s senate seat”, since Lincoln was never a senator.

    Colin – Well, I tried to do it before any Canadians discovered my error in history. I failed again! Canadians are just so darn smart about all things American! Please cut me a bit of slack. I knew Lincoln was an Illinois legislator who had served in the U.S. Congress. Darn! I forgot there are two houses in the Congress. Darn! I got everything about Lincoln wrong. I guess I am just a Southerner at heart. We never learned anything about Lincoln in school, except that he was a devil. Cheers.
