I have a confession to make. I want the jury to acquit Rod. I know he did it–he’s probably guilty of hell. And I’m normally such a law and order type of guy. But I hope he wins. I hope the Government loses.
I am not being naive. He probably deserves to be locked up. If not for trying to sell Obama’s seat, for something else. But you know what? All those politicians in Chicago are a bunch of crooks. Obama is just as crooked or more so, he is just not so ham-handed as to say what he is doing explicitly. The firing of the inspector general to protect his political ally. The Bubba-bribes to drop out of primaries. The political elimination of the G.M. automobile dealerships. Hell, even the robbing of our childrens’ future to pay for bribes and graft in the “stimulus bull, er I mean bill” is bribery.
More likely is that somehow he crossed or double-crossed the Obama Administration and this is their attempt to get back at him.
Don’t get me wrong. I am glad the facts came out in court. But now let the voters of Chicago decide if Rod is the type of politician that they want running their cities and state. If so, it does not affect me. Let them have him and his kind. If not, let them vote such people out at the next election. Just as I hope to God we vote out Obama and Reid and Pelosi when next they are up for re-election.
I know, I know, this is not a very principled post. But whatever Obama and the Feds want right now, I oppose. Those corrupt bastards ran Senator Stevens out of the Senate; for all I know the government’s case against Blagojevich is equally trumped-up.
