I know there’s a lot of corruption in Illinois politics (And if you think the Chosen One is untouched by it, I have a U. S. Senate seat to sell you.), but this is indeed “staggering.”
Among the accusations against Democrat Gov. Blagojevich – putting up Obama’s vacant U. S. Senate seat for sale and trying to extort the Chicago Tribune into firing unfavorable editorial board members. Wow.
And you thought I was kidding about selling you a Senate seat.
