One day he’s selling things like hot cakes. The next day, the outfit is shuttered. So goes for Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich. It is safe to say, business is down. Steve Breen illustrates.
Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s Bar codes. Yesterday: For sale. Tomorrow: Jail.”

And No Quarter brings us Obama or Someone Close to Him Spoke with Blagojevich About Senate Appointment. The story of Blagojevich’s arrest for attempting to indirectly sell outgoing Senator Barack Obama’s U.S. Senate seat to the highest bidder is a national headliner. The governor has the authority to appoint someone to fill the remaining term. But the the undercurrents are awash in finding out if Obama knew anything about Blagojevich’s desire to fill the position with Obama’s desired candidate or not. Conflicting stories from David Axelrod who admittedObama had discussed the position with Blagojevich, on Fox News, and whose You Tube interview from two weeks ago has been yanked by Fox conveniently. And Obama on December 9, 2008, claiming he did no such thing.
Sullies the appearances of Blagojevich and Obama. Conflicting statements lead to suspicions. The wire taps U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald has may shine more light on the matter.
And out there in the Blagosphere and the BlOgoshere, exist the evidence. It may just require a little digging. Because sometimes, some are working overtime to make it go away, conveniently scrubbing on behalf of either Blago or Obama. Scrub A Dub Dub, Obamatize The Web and Pants are on fire. Again.
