    Ain't going to happen. Just makes the accuser look ridiculous.
    I disagree that it makes the accuser looks bad. What it does is cement in peoples minds that politicians are crooks and not to be trusted ever. It also says to them that if left to clean their own house they would rather wallow in the mud ignoring the truth than do the right thing and clean house.

    Ah... first off, Pelosi had nothing to do with this. Blago is not in the House of Reps.
    Your partisan hackery is on overdrive with this one.

    Is Burris dirty? Probably, although, that recording wouldn't get him convicted of anything in court or else he would already be on trial.

    The "culture of corruption" is the repub trademark for Washington. Nice try though.

    As Dear Leader has shown on the national stage, it's "the Chicago way."
    No, Pelosi is dragged into it because bitching about Burris doesn't carry the same weight. It's soooo transparent.

Beware of them at all costs, they will rob you blind and that's if you're lucky.
    What part of Chicago do you live in again? That's what I thought. You're going a little nutter with the wild accusations and unsubstantiated claims.

    Overdrive? LOL... and then you accuse the entire R party as having "culture of corruption" as a TM?!

    Come, come... the D's have crap all over themselves... from Reid and his shady land deals, Pelosi and Feinstein, Jefferson, The Clintons (a couple books worth)... LOL...

    It wasn't our party that ran around screaming about a "Culture of Corruption" during the 2006 midterms.

    When we cleaned house, literally in 1994, and then found Rostankowski and a others abusing their offices... we didn't condemn the entire Democrat Party.

    This time I wish the R's would scorch the earth at every turn.
    But alas, the R's have no balls unfortunately.

    Overdrive? LOL... no, simply "connecting the dots".

    That's right. In this country you can only currently live in the place you were born in. I totally forgot, my bad. Here I though people could...you know...move. But apparently I was wrong. It's impossible from someone who was originally from Chicago to move to say Colorado. Impossible! Thanks for clearing that one up for me, I appreciate it.

    I was originally from Chicago, moved out. Great city, horrible politics.

    Anything else you want to run your mouth about?

    No shocker here. I enjoyed watching this putz nearly attack the reporters asking questions; when it comes to arrogant small minded Liberals, this is their usual tact.

    Were you this disingenuous during the 8 years of the Bush Administration where Liberal pundits never tired of accusing Bush and Cheney of corruption; yet to this day there is not one shred of evidence supporting any of these lies, distortions, hyperbole and public lynching for purely partisan political purposes? I doubt it.

    I am always amused that when the shoe is on the OTHER foot, Liberals and "moderates" suddenly have this convenient amnesia.

    Both parties engage in this ridiculous "it's their fault," political rhetoric and it is very sad.

    I'll vouch for Ikari as a native to the Chicagoland area. He grew up near where I did.

    Also, he's right. Chicago, as much as I love it, is one of the most politically corrupt cities in the country.

    There are decent politicians that crop up from time to time, but the vast majority are total scumbags.
