Is That a Rod in Your Governor's Mansion, Or Are You Just Happy to Bribe Me?

Although it seems like one more sleazy politician got his today, and while it might seem we should all be totally cynical and assume anyone elected is corrupt, it's really not like that at all. Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich just said in a press conference, "I've got this thing and it's fucking golden, and, uh, uh, I'm just not giving it up for fucking nothing. If I sell a Senate seat to the highest bidder, that will help prove that Democrats can be just as morally bankrupt as Republicans. All I am doing is help usher in the era of non-partisanship. We want a level playing field, so those on both the right and the left can profit from their public service equally. That's what America is all about."

Joe Lieberman, recently re-welcomed into the bosom of the Democratic Party (after they removed the knife he stuck there while campaigning for McCain), attacked President Elect Barack Obama, saying, "Here Obama had a chance to show he was willing to govern in a way our colleagues from across the aisle have worked for years. Alas, Obama was unwilling to give Blagojevich anything in appreciation. And I know something about appreciation...." The rest of Lieberman's statement couldn't be heard around Harry Reid's hand in his mouth.

Hey George. Simple but brilliant solution to our national debt. Auction off all house/senate seats to the highest bidder. 100 senate, 435 house. . . all we need to get is ~18.7 billion per seat and we've got 10 trillion covered! Maybe throw in some cabinet positions for good measure?
