More thoughts on Blago

There's been quite a broo-ha-ha, no? Parsing, teasing, examining, dissecting, the media is in a feeding frenzy. It's like when you throw some bread into a pond with starving carp.

The left is laughing at the right's attempts to tie Obama to Blago. Everyone is gnashing their teeth over the idea of corruption in government. Reports of how dumb or egomaniacal he is are being floated about. All this attention. So much fuss.

But, frankly, aren't ALL politicians corrupt? And I mean ALL. Surely, dirt can be found on any politician. You have to be dirty to BE a politician. Oh, I'm sure there's an honest one or two, but really, I'm not being cynical when I say that that it's safe to assume that for all intents and purposes, they are all corrupt.

Think about what they do. They talk to people to get money. They fundraise. Constantly. They press the flesh. They talk shit. They maintain the status quo, even though the status quo does not benefit the majority of the people. They have to be comfortable saying one thing and doing another. Indeed, to be a politician, you have to be AT LEAST a borderline sociopath.

So, why Blago? Well, in a nutshell, Blago's problem is he pissed off the wrong people. Whomever those people are is a matter of speculation, but you can assume they're powerful and feeling like wringing his neck would be a GOOD thing.
