WTF does one say about this?

My first thought was: Utterly unbelievable...an outrage so outrageous as to be nearly comical.

My second thought was: Well, compared to the type of corruption in the Bush administration, this really isn't that bad. (Note: comparing types, not scope or actual effects; of course a President can do more actual harm than a governor. But merely selling a Senate seat seems almost quaint by comparison to shredding the Constitution.)

My third thought: God, I hate it when people try to deflect attention from the sins of their favored party by pointing out that those of the other party are greater.

My fourth thought: Probably best to just shut up about this, then.

My fifth thought: just because we've been immersed in a stew of more heinous types of corruption for the last eight years in no way means that corruption of this type isn't outrageous, for it is, it is.

My sixth thought: Wonder how long it'll be before our friends across the aisle start tying themselves in rhetorical knots in an attempt to show how this entails that Obama is BAD? (Blagojevich is from Chicago and he is corrupt; Obama is from Chicago, so...)

My seventh thought: See fourth thought.

I hope Blagojevich can get his meds adjusted correctly - under the supervision of the Federal prison system. He's acting seriously manic.
