Another “Blago-eruption?” Egad, This Is Exciting!
By: John Lillpop
Governor Rod Blagojevich may be a vulgar, “F-word” addicted wretch, vile and corrupt in all manner before man and God, and a dirty, rotten SOB to boot.
However, nobody can accuse Blagojevich of being tepid, reserved, or backward. This man has a flare for the dramatic and for subtle comedy, essential skills in the cutthroat jungle known as Illinois politics, AKA, mobster relationship management.
Above all else, Rod Blagojevich is a DEMOCRAT, a fact which in no way excuses his felonies, but which does help explain the medical root cause of his crimes.
Liberalism is a mental disease!
The latest “Blago-eruption” slammed into the state of Illinois, the United States Senate, President-elect Obama, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, and BREAKING NEWS headline writers from coast to coast on this, the next to last day in the thoroughly god-forsaken year of 2008.
Without the slightest hint of morality or conscience, Governor Blagojevich, just three weeks removed from being handcuffed and hauled off to jail by the FBI, stood before the world to announce that he has filled the Senate seat of President-elect Barack Obama by appointing a fellow named Roland Burris to assume said office.
No financial terms were disclosed, and it is unclear whether Burris intends to pay cash or if he will need to secure a sub-prime loan to close the sale.
As reported in the Chicago Sun Times, Blagojevich said, in part, “The people of Illinois are entitled to have two U.S. Senators. “If I don’t make this appointment then the people of Illinois will be deprived.”
For some unexplained reason, Blagojevich failed to note that the people of Illinois also deserve an honest, law-abiding governor, a circumstance that only his resignation, impeachment, sudden death, or other act of divine intervention, can bring about.
Before Blagojevich held his press conference to introduce the next senator from the state of Illinois, Democratic leaders in the U.S. Senate issued a statement saying that any Blagojevich appointee would not be seated.
“It is truly regrettable that despite warning from all 50 Democratic senators and public officials throughout Illinois, Gov. Blagojevich would take the imprudent step of appointing someone to the United States Senate who would serve under a shadow and be plagued by questions of impropriety,” the statement read.
“We say this without prejudice toward Roland Burris’s ability, and we respect his years of public service. But this is not about Mr. Burris; it is about the integrity of a governor accused of attempting to sell this United States Senate seat. Under these circumstances, anyone appointed by Gov. Blagojevich cannot be an effective representative of the people of Illinois and, as we have said, will not be seated by the Democratic Caucus.”
How utterly delicious to witness Democrats trashing other Democrats on issues involving corruption and high crimes!
Still, it is hard to believe that it has only been three weeks since the first “Blago-eruption” sent the Democrat Party and its co-conspirators in the mainstream media into political apoplexy.
Oddly enough, three weeks from “Blago-eruption” number 2, Barack Obama is scheduled to be ordained to the post of Messiah in Chief, with his office headquarters located in Washington, D.C.
Before December 9, most Americans would have guessed that “Blagojevich” was a line of scrambled letters from an eye test chart at the doctor’s office, rather than the name of a prominent governor and experienced auctioneer.
Until December 9, the leftist media were engaged 24/7 in an “Obama Love-In,” which was being foisted upon the unwashed masses as objective news coverage. Back then, the greatest priority in America was the unsullied, uncontested deification of Barack Obama.
Thanks to Rod Blagojevich, the issue is corruption, corruption, and even more corruption in the state and neighborhoods where President-elect earned his political stripes and learned the Audacity of Hope.
Hang on, conservatives! This show has not even got off the ground yet, but already it has all the marks of being a five star performance!
Tell me again: How many days until the 2010 mid-terms?
