Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich has been arrested on corruption charges, including efforts to get money in exchange for his decision to appoint the replacement for Obama’s vacated Senate seat. Blagojevich, a Democrat, succeeded Republican George Ryan as Illinois Governor. Ryan has been convicted and imprisoned on rackateering and fraud charges.
Illinois voters kind of remind me of the hunter in the joke who gets mauled and raped by a bear. He keeps coming back for revenge and keeps getting mauled and raped by the bear. Eventually the bear pauses and says, “you’re not here for the hunting, are you?”
