Hail, Hail, the Gangs all Here

Daley, Blagojevich, Obama Chain of Command. With controversy surrounding the Illinois Governors office, many have called for Blagojevich’s head. We reviewed the complaint but got about page six of the 76 page report. Why? It reads like a list of run of the mill everyday things politicians and power mongers do.

Who doesn’t award friends with contracts when they do nice things for them? Blagojevich’s main problem seems to be that he has run out of friends. He wants to take controversial stands with the Illinois legislature. Evidence of this exists in his recent closing of some historical sites and parks across Illinois in an effort to balance the budget. The claims of impropriety seem more like a lashing out of the opposition, than proof of bona fide criminal intent.

The evidence in the wiretaps are already suspect to our mind. People say everything and mean nothing. If there is a group in the species most adherent to this observation, it is the group that flap their jaws more often than most: those involved in political office. How could anyone believe these charges are more than political daggers wielded at the guy that everybody currently loves to hate?

Calling for resignations? It seems that every major news media organization, every politico, hell even the President Elect Barack Obama, or who I like to call “America’s most famous first generation American” called for his resignation. Indeed Obama can say with clear conscious that no one from his office was involved in any wrong doing because they know there was no wrong doing in the first place. Political posturing. Maybe it is supposed to show decisiveness. We think it demonstrates unfairness. Blagojevich thought it was a joke when they came to take him away in handcuffs. And it was, but unfortunately it was at his, and the People of Illinois’ expense.

  • Dude, I mostly agree with you insights. Sad to say it is likely business as usual for the pols. Maybe the buried the really good stuff deeper than page 6. LOL
