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.)
If Governor Blagojevich had the “audacity” to sell Barack Obama’s vacant Illinois senate seat, how much do you suppose that “Congressman” Rod Blagojevich was able to fetch for his very own U.S. Congressional seat? Do you suppose any of the mainstream reporters will ask Blagojevich that question? Or will they ask Obama’s Chief of Staff, Chicago Boy Rahm Emanuel who held the Congressional seat after Blagojevich?
Of course, we have to remember that this is America, and in America, all crooks are innocent until proven guilty by a lowly paid government attorney. In addition, in Illinois machine politics, Cook County crooks are always innocent. All of those “bleepin'” audio snippets you are hearing from Blagojevich and his lovely wife, are not really evidence against Blagojevich, as he was innocently writing a new screen play for HBO entitled “The Chicago Boyz,” which is destined to rival “The Sopranos.” That audio you are hearing was stolen from the Blagojevich home when those jack-booted Federales invaded and confiscated the dictated manuscript of budding novelist Rod Blagojevich.
