The Blagojevichinization of American Politics

The Big Story yesterday was the arrest of Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich on Federal Political Corruption charges for allegedly using the vacated Senate seat of President-elect Barack Obama as a bargaining chip for himself. Through it all, the President-elect has kept his cool.

Blagojevich is likely to have his name entered along side other notables in history with both a noun- and verb-form of their surnames:

John Crapper

Monica Lewinsky

Ron Blagojevich

Use each in a sentance today and impress your friends.
By the way, no truth to the rumor that Milton-Bradley is rushing a new board game into production in time for Christmas: Monopoly: The Blagojevich Edition.

Gov. Blagojevich does have his supporters in Illinois…they’re called Blagophiles

Gov. Blagojevich
is accused, among other things, of wanting to use Barak Obama’s senate seat as leverage to get himself a cushy Ambassador’s position some where.

How about Ambassador to Leavenworth…a gated community in Kansas?
