Illinois scores big on list of "most corrupt politicians"

Thumbnail image for oblago.jpg (Feature - Small)

Guess which one is NOT on the list?

Aren't we pleased that Illinois was able to place three of its own on Judicial Watch's list of the 10 most corrupt politicians in Washington. They are...drumroll please,,,President Barack Obama, Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. and Sen. Roland Burris. 

Some might argue that we are underrepresented and, for gawd's sake, how can you leave off the state's chief clown, Rod Blagojevich? Remember, though, this is Washington only. If the list included state capitals and major cities, I'm sure we'd swamp whoever is in second place. 
You might notice that no Republicans made the list, which ought to tip you off about where Judicial Watch stands on the political spectrum

  • Too bad it was limited to Washington. Also, too bad that it deals with 2009, and thus before Tuesday's primary, since I think we added a few more potential ones there.

    Personally, I think they are a bit harsh on the President, but, then again, one of his first moves was packing the White House with Daley's people.

  • Nice that they put a token Republican on the list. Gotta love selective outrage.
