It’s like asking: Who do you want to send to jail first? December 10, 2008

This was how one of my professors in Chicago described Illinois gubernatorial elections.  And, truth be told, it applies to almost all Illinois politics.  This morning Illinois governor Ron Blagojevich was arrested.  I do wonder about this part of the article:

When asked by reporters whether he had any contact with Blagojevich about the Senate seat, Obama said he had no contact with the governor or his office.

“I was not aware of what was happening,” he added.

Really?  Obama was not talking AT ALL with Blagojevich about his successor?  Onward and upward!  Don’t look back at your previous jobs?  I have a feeling/audaciously hope that Obama was talking to Blagojevich, just that he wasn’t talking about any bribes.

Blagojevich has been so successful at making himself and his office look ridiculous that about a million people are now able to remember and maybe even spell his crazy name — that’s sort of like an accomplishment, right?
