The Democratic Strategist

Political Strategy for a Permanent Democratic Majority


It would be wrong to assume that the Governor of Illinois, arrested today for allegedly seeking to personally profit from the appointment of a successor to the president-elect, is guilty. But there appears to be no doubt about the quotes attributed to him today by U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald.
And so, on the theory that at least this sad saga should produce some humor, check out a Benjamin Sarlin post at The Daily Beast today, which lets readers guess whether Rod Blagojevich or Tony Soprana dished out ten earthy quotes. It’s not a particularly easy quiz.
Who knows: if Blago avoids the hoosegow, he might well be in line for his own television reality show, which should help with the legal bills.
