Illinois Governor: I was talking about his chair

Illinois Governor Rod R. Blagojevich has vigorously defended himself against accusations he tried to sell President-Elect Barack Obama’s Senate Seat, claiming he was grossly misunderstood.

“I was talking about Obama’s actual Senate seat, the chair he sat on,” said an irate Blagovich.

“After all of those years with his narrow arse wearing on it, that seat is well and truly due for replacement.”

Governor Blagovich said he was doing the state a favour.

“You people are unbelievable – I was trying to help the environment by recycling, and you accuse me of corruption,” he said.

After appearing in a federal court, Blagojevich was released from custody on a $4,500 bond, and immediately offered local bail bond agents the opportunity to “sponsor” him for just $9,000.

    Do you find it a bit hypocritical that Obama was quickly dismissed as being in on the conspiracy? If that would have been Bush in Obama’s shoes, they would have went with a different technique in terms of how the media has quickly denounced any involvement that Obama could have had. I am not saying I believe he was in on it. I truly do not believe that he was, however it is just the way the MEDIA has treated it.

      Shane, you may be right, but BO should enjoy a bit of leeway at the moment, because after the honeymoon period is over he is going to get flogged. War, economy, jobs, climate change…

    A novel approach – CASH for a polictical seat! Makes a refreshing change from the usual currency – mining rights, tax breaks, military contracts…

      Ooh, scathing political commentary. Is that you Laurie Oaks? I know you’re a regular visitor. You’re on the money anyway (boom boom); what you call “corruption” I call “fundraising”.
