Time to throw the tea in the bay and start over

Here we go again, folks. Governor Blagojevich of Illinois is in the soup with the feds. The audacity of this man to attempt to sell a U.S. Senate seat goes far beyond my comprehension. If what the tapes say is true I could have walked into his office plunked down a few million dollars and have been appointed a US senator.

The big question remains is who else will be named after all of the perpetrators become informants. Will Rahm Emanuel be named? Maybe even President-elect Barrack Obama? Who was the third man calling on behalf of U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr.? Could it have been Jesse Jackson Sr.?

Barrack Obama has not even been sworn in and a scandal of immense proportions is in the making.

I for one am tired of all of the crooked politicians in Washington and throughout our nation in national state and local governments. I think it is time to throw the tea in the bay and start over. Our founding fathers must be rolling over in their graves. It is without a doubt a giant disgrace and an insult to the citizens of our great nation.
