Is Governor Blagojevich's Timely Discovery A Smoke Screen?

When a police officer or school teacher is being investigated (to either clear or convict) they are suspended with pay. After all, everyone is innocent until proven guilty. I'm having trouble with these high state officials (governors and senators) being caught with their hands in the corruption cookie jar and defiantly shaking their fists at the nation, daring anyone to dethrone them. Believe me, shaming doesn't work on the shameless. They have to have that one last gulp of "power-air" before they drown in their cesspool. President-elect Obama is calling for one Rod Blagojevich (Illinois Governor) to resign following his arrest for...okay, I'll use it... allegedly trying to sell Senator Obama's vacant senate seat. Let's pull him out of the office (by force if necessary), give him a monthly pay check until this whole thing is sorted out, and let the chips fall where they may. Maybe Governor Blagojevich's discovery was just a little timely. He has been under investigation since at least October. Does someone need a smokescreen? We have yet another drama to distract us from the bailout. Don't let that happen!

Sidebar: Although I personally do not think President-elect Obama is in anyway involved, I am a little curious as to the discrepancy between his statement and David Axelrod's. Mr. Axelrod, senior advisor to President-elect Obama, was quoted on November 23rd of this year as follows:
"I know he's talked to the governor, and there are a whole range of names, many of which have surfaced, and I think he has a fondness for a lot of them." Axelrod has since retracted his earlier remark and replaced it with this one: "I was mistaken. ... They did not then or at any time discuss the subject." I find it difficult to think that a man with his capabilities couldn't make a simple statement without being "mistaken"...maybe I'm mistaken.

Note: The only voice that isn't heard is the one which utters not a word. Speak out America!

May God bless America...and may America deserve it!
