The Chicago Way
December 11, 2008 § 8 Comments
You’ve been following the Blagojevich story, I’m confident. Assclown governor of Illinois concludes that his responsibility to fill President-Elect Barack Obama’s now vacant Senate seat represents an opportunity for embiggening his own bank account.
The part I find heartening in this is rumour that as part of his scam Blagojevich tried to strongarm Obama. Seems one of the Obama insiders, one Valerie Jarrett was a hot prospect for the seat. Rumour also has it that Blagojevich might have floated a couple of names discordant with Obama’s preferences in an attempt to strongarm Obama into giving up the Benjamins to Blagojevich. I really, really, really hope this account is credible. Wanna know why? It suggests that Obama is fully capable of the The Chicago Way.
