    No doubt that Blagojevich has to be one of, if not the most corrupt politicians in modern times. It's outrageous that anyone who has the public trust as a governor would use his clout as governor to blackmail people for money and power. I hope he rots in jail and becomes the best girlfriend of the nastiest ones at Jolliet or wherever.

    HOWEVER, it is pathetic to accuse Obama of being corrupt when he had nothing, absolutely nothing to do with Blagojevich. Guilt by association is as Un-American as it gets and it is too bad that you felt the urge to lower yourself this way.

    I didn't say Obama is dirty because of what Blagojevich has done. I said he's dirty cause he came up through Chicago and Chicago is the most corrupted body politic in the country. You can't come up through Chicago clean, it doesn't happen. Daley and his cronies will see to that. It's not guilt through association, it's measured data. Go learn a thing or two about Chicago politics and then come back when you're ready to engage in an intellectually honest debate.

    Ok, so this guy wanted to bid out the senate seat. Who the **** pays money, to become a senator? Thats like paying somebody to take a dump on your face. Kind of like a reverse Fear Factor.

    And then imagine having to be in the same chamber with Reid.

    Did you hear this stupid comments about how he welcomed people bugging his conversations because everything he says is lawful? What a stupid idiot he is!

    And yet Obama comes from Chicago politics, and we are told that he is pure as the driven snow. Since he'll soon have the highest office in the land, we'd better all hope that he is, or things will go from bad to worse real fast.

    That's as likely as George W Bush earning a Nobel Prize for Science!
