Driving into work this morning I got to hear the lovely news that a certain Illinois Governor was arrested by the FBI for allegedly placing Barack Obama's Senate seat up to the highest bidder. This is the kind of thing that instantly turns voters off from politics and just feeds into the stereotype that politicians are all corrupt. Governor Rod Blagojevich, if truly guilty of this, is in the same boat as bonehead Ted Stevens and ought to be hung out to dry. He allegedly tried to get financial gains and board positions for his wife. That's wonderful. Blagojevich is what's wrong with politics today and I hope, if guilty, that he is punished.
That new federal anti-leaking program is really… something
