Bye, Blago! Make sure to write!

And by that, we mean keep a journal or something so when you get out, you can hawk a book about losing a almost a decade and half of your life for being greedy.

Rod R. Blagojevich, the former governor of Illinois, was sentenced on today to 14 years in federal prison for 18 felony corruption convictions. That includes the time he tried to sell/trade President Obama's open Senate seat. The sentence wasn't exactly what the prosecutors were hoping for, but at least he got time to begin with.

Before leaving for prison life, he released this statement:

“I have nobody to blame but myself for my stupidity and actions, words, things that I did, that I thought I could do."

He said! It's on the record! Mark it down people!

Well, he's got a lot of time to think about that stupidity of his.

Oh, not for selling Obama's seat. For being on Celebrity Apprentice! Talk about jumping the shark! Damn!

    Another loser politician who stood up and adamantly lied to the public. No sympathy here.



  2. 2

    He needs to get a burr hair cut before he goes in. Otherwise, someone may want to put it in pig tails and call him honey.



  3. 3

    Come on Perez, 14 years? We have f'm murderers who don't get that….Our $ can be used better than to provide for a political crook



  4. 4

    He won't go to a regular federal prison and won't spend 1/4 of that time behind bars. Non violent crime. Overcrowding. Appeals. and so on.
    Yet Mario still walks free.

    Hope this is the first of many
    What about Jesse Jackson Jr ?
    Rahm Emanuel?
    Erick Holder ?
    Maxine Waters?
    Barney Frank?
    list goes on and on

    just another Democrat that categorically denied breaking any laws as looked into the camera's and lied to all us American's. This is getting old liberals.



  7. 7

    I find it a little ridiculous that he is getting 14 years in prison when some murderers and rapists get like 2.

    Re: buck – Right Buck because only LIBERALS lie. Where were those WMD'S again that Bush and Cheney said they found in Iraq??? Point is, Right or left, doesnt matter what party they are affiliated to THEY ALL LIE AND CHEAT AND STEAL from the people they are in office to SERVE. Quit pointing the finger at one party and get educated before you make such stupid uninformed comments.

    Oh GREAT…you you can kill Michael Jackson and get 4 years..that turns into 2 years..that might turn into just months…..but this guy gets 14 years for THAT????…I think the justice system needs to be tinkered with.

    Re: MntDew – Your right 14 years is way too long, he definitely deserves to serve time for the crime committed, but when you have other politicians still in office, and those wall street crooks still living the high life without being charged for the crimes they committed its ridiculous.

    Re: MR Pete – Lets not forget Obama. The king of dirty politicians.

    The strange thing is Blaggo didn't really DO anything. He just talked about it. Barney Frank has brought the housing industry to it's knees and he is still slobbering in front of cameras and people listen to him like he is a god.

    Re: revolve77 – right or left it doesnt matter…but its the left that has no problem looking into the camera's and flat out lie to us. at least on the right they hustle those with low morals right out the door. the left and the liberal media cover up for them until the bitter end. but no worries, liberals have run their course the country is wise to their tactics now.

    Re: revolve77 – and by the way, if WMD's are all you have to go on you need to educate yourself. countless resolutions, warnings and intelligence from numerous organization and countries validified the action. both democrats and republicans voted to use force, including Clinton, Reid, Pelosi, Frank, Dodd, Rangle. now if a democrat was in office, from what we now know with ballot stuffing, cheating and lying, they would have simply planted WMD's in Iraq. i think the bottom line is, and we can all agree, liberals are not good people.

    I'm sure Donald Trump will visit him frequently — he's such a stand-up, loyal kinda guy. . . .

    Prison? Really? More like Club Fed, out in two or three. He's likely ordering his big screen for his cell right now.

    Re: buck – Shall we bring up all of the right wing politicians that LIE about their sexual orientation while persecuting the Gays and preaching about their strong family values and how it should be upheld?? Look my point was simply to say that Right and Left politicians are all criminals. They can give two shits about the middle class,I am not an Obama supporter, nor am I routing for any of the imbeciles running for the GOP. You state that many are on to Obama and his ways well lets hope so, but if you think that any of the candidates running against him are going to do any better you will be in for quite a surprise. But then again you'll just blame it on the "liberal" media and their hate for the Republicans. I think you will be surprised to see Obama get reelected for another four years….

    Re: MntDew – Yes. This sentence seems VERY excessive.

    Re: movedtocomment – Yes, it does. (I wondered if he p'd someone off.)
    However, I doubt he'll do 14. This guy believes his own spin.
