I thought whoring out offices went under the “Casual Encounters” category.

I just read that Blago is a former prosecutor. Just when you think the level of stupidity involved can’t get any higher….

@Signal to Noise: Or perhaps the M4M category. No, wait, that’s Larry the Knob Goblin’s seat.

@Jamie Sommers: I saw that this morning. One of my cellmates on this gig used to do criminal defense, and she can’t wrap her mind around it. Stunning.

Apparently, it’s the Jews’ turn to distance themselves from Blago. Check out the pronounciation key in the 5th para of this article:

Oh, and incidentially, HopeTM finally calls for his resignation too. The only one still silent about resignation is Da Mayor, only saying he should “do what’s best for the state.” Very strange coming from a man not known for his measured responses.

He went to Pepperdine Law School in Malibu, a 4th rate law school at best, one that draws the dumb spawn of rich, Jesus-loving right-wingers.

Come now, I’m sure that it was ABSOLUTELY ok to contact Blagojevich with services or other commercial interests….

@Dodgerblue:
Pepperdine?! No wonder, that explains the hair, not to mention the ignorance of the law.
And it must have been before Ken Starr came to teach there, how else to explain Jamie Sommers‘s news that he used to be a prosecutor.

And as I predicted yesterday, Jesse Jackson Jr. is Senate Candidate #5. Eliot Spitzer at least got himself some poontang when he was referred to as a number in a DOJ investigation. Jesse Jr., not much of anything.

ADD: Unless it’s Emil Jones, Jr.

Query to Chicago Stinquers: Are there any politicians in Illinois besides Obama who are not the son or daughter of a politician? Will Malia Obama be governor in 2040?

SanFranLefty: Research required. Get back to you in February.

@SanFranLefty:

One, two, three, four, five, everybody on the call so come on let’s bribe…..
To get the senate seat from Blaggy.
Blaggy say he want some green and jobs but I really don’t wanna.
Fo Mo’bucks than I had last week.
I must say more ’cause talk is cheap.
I like Bakshish, Graft, Kickbacks and Moola.
And as I continue, you know the pot’s getting sweeter.
So what can I do? I really beg you Blaggy.
To me paying is just like a sport.
Anything fly, it’s all good let me dump it.
Please set it in the trumpet.

Throw in a bit of bakshish to his wife,
Throw in a bit of graft by his side.
Throw in a bit of Kickbacks’s all he need,
Throw in a bit of Salary’s all to see.
Throw in a bit of Moola for some fun,
Throw in a bit of Sinecures all year long.
Throw in a bit of styling for his hair,
Throw in a bit of green makes me THA MAN!!!!!!!!
Candidate number five.

@flippin eck: Obama should have done this yesterday. Yeah yeah yeah innocent until proven guilty. That doesn’t take away from the fact that Blago was a douchebag prior to being indicted.

@rptrcub: I know. As the ChangeTM candidate, Unicorn should’ve been all over that. In my original comment (before I edited it five times, as per usual), I said he pulled a Powell today.

@SanFranLefty: Last night on Countdown Jonathan Alter provided some flimsy cover for Jackson, arguing that he wouldn’t have access to that kind of money, because it’s just inconceivable that a well-connected congressman could scare up $500K. At least Rachel’s guests had the good sense to not say anything about it one way or another.

@Dodgerblue: Gorgeous view of the ocean from the law library, though. (I used to go there to study when I was in the paralegal training course at UCLA — no one @ Pepperdine was ever using the books I needed.)

Blago is so fucking dumb. I can’t believe he actually used the phrase ‘Pay to Play’. Out loud! On the phone! Just take him out and shoot him and get it over with.

@mellbell: Yes, the Jackson brothers are really hard up for cash, what with that Budweiser distribution business that daddy helped get them and all.

@homofascist: “Yes, the Jackson brothers are really hard up for cash”
… wait what about Janet and Latoya?

@homofascist: He was so stupid and baltant about it, I can imagine his lawyers trying to sell the ol’ “he was running his own secret sting operation to see who was corrupt enough to ‘pay to play'” defense. As far as I can tell, that’s pretty much all they’ve got.

Since my economic situation made it impossible for me to call in fabulous today, here’s my contribution to human right’s day: everyone’s TV boyfriend Jon Stewart taking the Huckster apart on same sex marriage. Enjoy.

@Mistress Cynica: My boss even said she was tempted to call in gay today. And yes, she’s straight and only likes the dudes.

I’ll go lesbian for Rachel. Already got the comfy shoes.

@SanFranLefty: Hell, why wait until 2040? Let’s get her in there now! She can only improve the situation.

@drinkyclown: Like Mike, they blew it all on skin bleaching and rhinoplasty.

@Mistress Cynica: Well, if I were Blago’s defense attorney, I’d advise him to go out in public wearing a bathrobe and slippers rubbing a stuffed animal cat and talking about getting a pretty shiny collar for Fluffy the Kitty. I think the koo-koo-pants defense that has been successfully offered by mafioso may be the best mitigating factor he can hope for at this point.

@SanFranLefty: LOL. And then Fluffy the stuffed kitty attacks the rat on top of his head…great TV!!
