Really Blagojevich?

Alright, first of all, I just want to know... Rod Blagojevich, what were you thinking? I think everyone with any common sense in Illinois knew how corrupt Governor Blagojevich has been in office. For some reason, he believes he can do whatever he'd like, whenever he'd like without getting in trouble.

Let me tell you, Rod, you're seriously mistaken. He tried to sell Obama's chair in Senate? Really? How much money does one man need? He's already taking all of ours and doing nothing with it.

Part of the reason he was elected in the first place was because of his plans for inner city education reforms. Has he done anything? Absolutely not. I couldn't be more ecstatic that his phone was tapped. Now he faces conspiracy charges, and he will hopefully be removed from office. He's already gotten away with more than he deserved to, but being as naive and ignorant as he's proven to be, he assumed he would never be caught. As the article states, "Levenson, a former federal prosecutor, says Blagojevich's own words may be difficult to explain away. "He needs more of a magician than a criminal defense lawyer," she says" (Johnson 1).

Frankly, I find it ridiculous his criminal acts hadn't been discovered sooner. Isn't it a bit obvious when Illinois' sales taxes are significantly higher than any other state? And it isn't being used to provide any significant reforms to the state? Next time we vote, let's think it through thoroughly.
