The Dumbass of the Year award goes to . . . .

Rod Blagojevich

Seriously, I don’t know where to begin.   Doesn’t he realize that a senate seat is nothing to sell? 

Technically, Blago should select the person who can best represent the state of Illinois in the United States Senate.

But, I’m not that naive.  I know bargaining goes on.  People meet with the governor and lobby for certain candidates.  Deals are made.  But not financial deals.

I know people have met with New York Governor David Paterson on behalf of some possible selections about Hillary Clinton’s senate seat.  And I know there is some push-and-pull going on in Delaware over Vice President-elect Joe Biden’s seat.

But to try to sell it?

The president-elect indicated to Blago that he preferred a certain candidate but apparently wasn’t willing to offer Blago any money. 

“They’re not willing to give me anything except appreciation.  [Expletive] them.” 

I’m not 100% percent certain what Rod Dumbass is referring to besides anything – except money. 

Doesn’t he realize that there is something to the appreciation of a sitting president – especially one from your home state?   Dumbass.

The bandwagon against Dumbass Blagojevich has started.

Illinois Senator Dick Durbin (D) has called for a special election to fill Obama’s senate seat. 

“”No appointment by this governor under these circumstances could produce a credible replacement,” Durbin said.

Illinois Lt. Governor Patrick Quinn has called upon Blago to “do the right thing and step aside.”  If Blago does “the appropriate thing for Illinois” and resigns, Quinn would become governor. 

Not surprisingly, Republicans have already stepped up and called on Blago to resign.  They are also calling on impeachment hearings.  I have to say, if he’s guilty as this appears, Blago must resign. 

The President-elect did offer a brief comment on the mater.

“Like the rest of the people of Illinois I am saddened and sobered by the news that came out of the U.S.. Attorneys office today. But as this is an ongoing investigation involving the governor, I donʼt think it would be appropriate for me to comment on the issue at this time.”

But that isn’t all that I find peculiar.  He seems to [expletive] like to [expletive] use the [expletive] ‘f’ bomb.

The U. S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald report reported a November 5th conversation between Blago and Advisor A.

I’ve got this thing and it’s [expletive] golden, and, uh, uh, I’m just not giving it up for [expletive] nothing.  I’m not gonna do it.  And, and I can always use it.  I can parachute me there.”

Yes, dumbass.  You can parachute yourself right into the [expletive] big house.

Mrs. Blogo is just as much a [expletive] potty mouth as her husband.  In the Blagojevich charges, apparently there was a “deal the Tribune company was seeking on behalf of the Cubs.”  In the background of the call Mrs. Blago could be heard telling her husband to tell ‘Deputy Governor A ‘to hold up that [expletive] Cubs [expletive] … [expletive] them.”

Ahh, such [expletive] class.

Talking Points Memo provided some fantastic links in their story.  [Expletive] great links.

I watched a video also courtesy of Talking Points Memo where Fox News already asked the question:  I am seeing the video where President-elect Obama is shaking hands with the governor.  

It’s the [expletive] duck analogy again.  If Blago is a corrupt dumbass – And Obama shook Blago’s hand – then Obama … you get the idea.

Hey, Blago – You’ve just [expletive] tried to sell a mother [expletive] senate seat.  What are you going to do now?

  1. If Blagojevich resigns, then there won’t be impeachment hearings.

  2. Blagojevich – a creepy, dirty politician. He reminds me of the Philadelphia Democratic Ward Leaders that don’t want to do their job unless the politician greases their hands. Yuk. Thankfully, Obama had enough volunteers that he didn’t need the Ward Leaders.

  3. He does remind me of a bunch of local political weasels I met years ago. He came off as cocky and arrogant when he challenged reporters to record his conversations (reminds me of Gary Hart). I’m not so certain that he’ll resign.

  4. Yeah, this guy is a total F-up. Not only that, but Illinois was looking to get the Olympics in their state, now he probably screwed that up. This just perpetuates the typical stereotype about Chicago and other big cities. He seems extremely vindictive, greedy, and narcissistic.

  5. He thinks he’s a Chicago toughguy. Let’s see how tough he is when he’s in the big house.

    I’m thinking he would have messed it up the second he tried to buy the International Olympic Committee and delight them with his [expletive] eloquent speaking style.

  6. Narcissistic doesn’t even begin to describe a person who, while under investigation for a different set of crimes, continues to break the law with reckless abandon. I live in Illinois and this is just downright embarrassing. The past two governors of this political cesspool will both wind up in jail bringing the tally to four, the number of governors from Illinois who have wound up in jail over the past 30 years because of political corruption. The kicker about Blagojevich is that his whole election platform was political reform…what a joke!! I hope they bury him and the asshole spends a lot of time in prison.
