Wow. Talk about a nightmare story from hell coming from Obama's home state!!!

His governor, Rod Blagojevich, was arrested for trying to sell the appointment to Obama's vacant U.S. Senate seat!!! Amazingly, Blagojevich did this -- even as he (like his convicted Republican predecessor, George Ryan) has been the subject of corruption investigation for months -- by U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald (yep, that one)!!!

Nothing to suggest yet that Obama knew anything about this, but it is still nonetheless a huge embarassment to the president-elect, at a time when he has been getting huge plaudits for running a seamless transition.

On the other hand, considering New York's pending $14 billion deficit, perhaps this is something Gov. David Paterson should think about for Hillary's seat. Considering the full-court press that the Kennedys are putting out to get Caroline appointed, surely they can afford a few mil, right?

UPDATE: The indictment.

UPDATE II: Jim Pinkerton explains why -- following the special-election wins last week in Georgia and Illinois -- that the Blagojevich indictment is Part 2 of the "Republican Comeback."
