Rod Blagojevich Selling On eBay!

According to a criminal complaint released by federal authorities on Tuesday, Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich is in all kinds of trouble for allegedly trying to profit from his office, including an attempt to “sell” Barack Obama’s empty Senate seat.

Illinois, and the rest of humanity, is no stranger to political corruption – what is so amazing about Blagsonofavich is his brazenness! Not only did he discuss the deal openly over the phone in profanity-laden tirades, but a starcasm reporter has just discovered the governor’s eBay seller’s page! WOW! $6 million to be a senator? Campaigning is for chumps! (Maybe Blagojevich should see if someone is auctioning off some discretion)

    Oh man! How do I bid?!?

    I was gonna say the Political Ethics textbook was my favorite, but I think there is subtle genius in “Selling Your Soul For Dummies” because this is clearly a dummy that sold his soul!

    Great stuff!

    This is one of my favourite posts – it got a chuckle out of me. Which is more than the two orphans I asphyxiated with a garden hose did for me, stupid little ingrates.

    I think I will bid on the profanity audio book set. Yes, that would be quite swell indeed! I need to expand upon my vocabulary of “dagnabbit” and “fiddlesticks,” and it most certainly seems as though Mr. Blagojevich benefited greatly from this fine set.

    (What a dumbass – should be fun following this story)

    I heard he’s offered Bush the senate seat in exchange for a full pardon. Scary stuff!
