    One cannot help but note the sheer hypocracy of the crocodile outrage that's being piled on Blago by our political system

    Our ENTIRE POLITICAL SYSTEM is a quid pro quo system, folks.

    I presume Blago's real crime is failing to pretend that it was anything but that.

    In other words the Blago was simply not a smooth enough operator to be good at asking for and accepting bribes in the way that it is done now.

    I do not doubt he's made his share of enemies along the way, either, so what I think we're really seeing is a dogpiling by his fellow pols.

    They are basically driving a less than adaquate hypocrite (and probably somebody who has pissed off the wrong people) from their midst.
