Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich taken into federal custody

....I know a some folks who aren't the LEAST little bit surprised.




Wonder how much Barry HUSSEIN paid the Chicago boys for all the help they gave him getting his competition disqualified for the Illinois senate seat a while back. Will anyone sing like a canary? Or are they afraid of an Obamacide?

Details here. Nothing like a club Fed Christmas Vacation. Merry Christmas, soon-to-be-EX Governor.

Enjoy your new "boyfriends." If you drop the soap...don't pick it up.

A real Catholic Conservative.
Your mean-spirited remarks about Obama are not in the tone of Our Lord's preachings. "Love your neighbor as yourself", "he who is without sin, cast the first stone". "Blessed are the peacemakers". Please remove the word Catholic from your website because you are not representing the best of our faith.

The amount of in-yer-face corruption that seems to have helped the massively big spending Lets-Kill-Babies Obama into the White House, strikes me as just a little undemocratic.
I could be wrong of course.

Mum, you're right. Just speak the TRUTH about Nobama, and you're being "mean spirited."

Anon. Take that east coast liberalism and shove it where the moon don't shine.

Obama is NOT my neighbor. I have serious doubts whether or not he is even my countryman.

Liberals can't even read. I there ANYWHERE on my blog where I say this is a "Catholic blog." I am a blogger, who happens to be Catholic. Sometimes I write about it. You may have noticed, but sometimes I don't.

I guess the Democrat mantra is: "If my political cohort breaks every commandment, don't say jack squat because that's "judgmental." DAMN right it's "judgmental." If something is wrong I'm going to call them on it. And that includes everything from trying to foist a foreigner as president on us to a "president" who is going to wipe out ANY and all gains the prolife movement has made, and moreover take away freedom of conscience from doctors and shut down Catholic hospitals for refusing to refer abortions or do them. The HELL with your brand of democrats. They're not even patriots. I will not cringe and be intimidated by an anonymous creep from the democrat party. Particularly a backer of Nobama.

Hmmm, maybe I can buy that seat and exercise some justice for the unborn babies killed by nobama....

Isn't it funny how people come to your blog accusing you of x, y and z and people don't even take the time to read the blog?...That's why I put the disclaimer clause up...I'm all for the political incorrectness, keep it up.

what's all this talk about calling for Blagojevich to "resign?" ... "throw him in prison" sounds a lot more fitting

it gives me chills to see how calm and collected he continues to act

Just wish all the corrupt ones would get thrown in the clink, but then who would run the government :)

I am Catholic, consider myself conservative, live in Illinois -- actually in Springfield, just a few blocks down the street from the Capitol itself -- and work for a state agency (not executive, thanks be to God). So I would just like to inject a little perspective into all of this.

Disclaimer: I am no fan of Obama and did not vote for him, so please don't take anything I say as a defense of his policies or of his pro-abortion stance.

Blago was in deep legal doo-doo long before any of this stuff hit the fan. He had been under investigation for at least three years for what Fitz called (at that time) "endemic hiring fraud." There is lots of evidence that he's been selling seats on state commissions, high-placed state jobs, and state contracts for a price -- the most common figure that comes up is $25,000.

At this point non-Illinois residents are probably asking "How the heck did he get elected TWICE?" Well, the first time he was running as a reformer who was going to clean up government after the George Ryan scandals. (Ryan pretty much killed any chance any Republican in Illinois had of being elected dogcatcher.) The second time, he spent gazillions of bucks on campaign commercials painting his Republican opponent (State Treasurer Judy Baar Topinka, a "moderate" Republican, though definitely less pro-abortion than Blago) as a corrupt stooge of George Ryan. Blago barely got 50 percent of the vote; the remainder was split between Topinka and a Green Party protest candidate. I suppose most Illinoisans probably figured they were both crooked so why not stick with the devil they know.

Blago is despised by most rank and file state employees because he treats them like dirt while installing his toadies in mid- to upper-level positions at higher pay. He also is known for retaliating against anyone who gets in his way.

There was -- literally -- celebrating all over Springfield the day he got arrested. We feel like the French underground hearing the news of D-Day, or perhaps the people of Israel hearing news of the fall of Babylon or Nineveh.

In a strange sort of way, I think it was fitting that this all took place during the season of Advent when we await the coming of a Sun of Justice with far more power than any federal prosecutor.

Blago had presidential ambitions from the moment he became governor; that's why he raised campaign cash like there was no tomorrow -- $55 million in 6 years. He was seriously being mentioned, back in 2003 and early 2004, as a possible future Democratic presidential contender. Then along came Obama to steal his thunder. After that, Blago and Obama had as little to do with one another as they possibly could.

Blago has never forgiven Obama for "stealing" the presidential spotlight that Blago wanted for himself, and I believe he WANTS to make Obama look bad. I would not, at this time, read too much into any alleged "connections" between the two men.

I have felt for a long time that Blago is one of the most truly evil -- not just misguided, not just conventionally crooked, but downright evil -- public officials around. I fear for that man's soul. A lot of us wonder if he still has one.

No matter what you think of him, it should be pointed out that he and the Mrs. have two young daughters, only 11 and 5 years old. They are truly innocent victims of this and I cannot imagine what they must be going through. There is a real possibility that BOTH of their parents could end up in prison, or that the family could end up destitute. Please pray for them.

Hi Bookworm, thanks for weighing in. Sorry I didn't see your comment sooner. Thanks for giving the Illinois detailed view, if that makes sense. I wondered what the source of animosity between Nobama and Blago was. I thought a man who called Nobama the MF word had a redeeming quality or two. ;-D

Will certainly pray for the two little girls in all this mess. They're certainly not at fault. Hope at least one grandmother has her head screwed on right.
