Really Rod? Really?

A 76-page FBI affidavit alleges that Blagojevich was intercepted on court-authorized wiretaps during the last month conspiring to sell or trade Illinois’ U.S. Senate seat vacated by President-elect Barack Obama for financial and other personal benefits for himself and his wife. At various times, in exchange for the Senate appointment, Blagojevich discussed obtaining:

– a substantial salary for himself at a either a non-profit foundation or an organization affiliated with labor unions

– placing his wife on paid corporate boards where he speculated she might garner as much as $150,000 a year;

– promises of campaign funds – including cash up front; and

– a cabinet post or ambassadorship for himself.

Really Rod? Don’t you have a lower approval rating than Cheney? Aren’t people already hounding you for precisely this? Chicago loses it’s second city status with the election of Barack Obama and NOW would be a good time to get super corrupt?  

But you know, you hire a guy named “Rod”, you get a guy named “Rod”. Where I come from “Rod”‘s and “Rodney”‘s were not be trusted. If it was gym and a “Rod” or “Rodney” was around, somebody’s pants were coming down.
