Now, Who's the Bitch? Rove? Ryan? Yet Another Official "A"?
There's an Olbermann excerpt has become a major blog meme, especially amongst Illinois' web-addicted set. I don't know what the money shot is in this post, but read all the way to the end, and you four readers of mine can post your own opinions.
My opinion - lawbreaking and corrupt officials can all rot in prison, no matter how they feel 'bout abortion, schools, the death penalty, the war or the flag. There's always more people who will take exactly the same policy stands, come the next election and the one after that; political wannabes are a dime a dozen. Why not have butts in the chairs that aren't underneath greedy criminals?
BONUS corruption nugget - here's an excerpt from Scott Fawell's 500+ page (!!) secret list of favors made for George Ryan while Jailbird #76 was Sec'y of State. A LOT of familiar names, most wanting more than a vanity plate (though almost every one on the list asked for those, too).
Note, also, that the ongoing corruption scandal probe that just nailed #76 with 22 guilty counts currently has a record of 76-0; nothing but guilties. Go, Fitz & Co.!!
