    it may seem like that to the Obamabots, but reality folks, yeah it's a freaking blog:

    Althouse: What's the matter with Illinois?

    Blog or not, the questions will remain until addressed.

    Agree, but if Obama wasn't from Illinois how many people would give a crap for more than 48 hours?

    pity, too few. Corruption corrupts. Just ask anyone in LA, IL, or NJ.

    I'm taking a course at present and one of the other guys is a Chicago architect. He basically says exactly what you just did. But he would not agree that LA or NJ are anywhere near as corrupt as Chicago. Th stories he tells about what are basically legalized kickbacks are simply astonishing.

    Why is it that when I start reading this whole Obama, Blagojevich, Rezko crap that it almost feels like I'm watching a good mobster movie?

    I lived in Chitown for 15 years. If they put a stop to all the corruption, the city would come to a standstill.

    Seriously, I think it's Obama's protests that he isnt involved drawing most of the attention to him. I mean no one is thinking about Obama in this scandal till the guy comes out and denies his involvement. I mean no ones accused you of anything so why are you denying it?

    I think Obama's creating more problems for himself than anyone else.

    Indeed. It's what makes this city 'work.' The obvious corruption though, that will cost Chicago the Olympics.

    Well the scandal does involve his vacant senate seat. Not too mention Fitzgerald also had to go out of the way to announce that there is no accusations against Obama himself.
