Did I ever mention I'm OK with bringing back public hangings?
"Just blame Sixto"
How about the old fashioned stockaides? It would be great to have his backside hanging out in a very public place so the public could torement at will. Since he is in Chicago, Navy Pier maybe? I'm sure its cold and windy there right now.
"Just blame Sixto"
In Ye Olde England the punishment of pillory (put in the stockade) was often a death sentence. The crowd didn't always throw tomatoes, they mostly threw rocks and saved their food for eating. I, for one, think Sixto is on to something.

Welcome to the reason for the Seventeenth Amendment.
Of course, no one Blagojevich would have appointed would have been worse than the Senators the people of Illinois have elected.
I might add that selling the Senate seat is NOT the only thing he is charged with. There is also the tiny matter of getting his wife a cushy/high paying job.
Kinda makes me wonder how Mrs. Obama got hers !!!!!!!!!
Meanwhile, we are all keeping our eye on the wrong ball. This stuff in Chicago, smelly as it is, is minor league.
Pay some attention instead to the fact that yesterday a guy on Wall Street was arrested for the second largest fraud in US history; 50 billion dollars, second only to Enron. He was a high official in the over the counter stock exchange.
These massive business frauds hurt everyone who has a 401K, a self-directed IRA, a pension plan of any sort. Think about it, a 50 billion fraud is 3 times the amount of money needed for the auto bailout; it represents the theft of approximately $150.00 from every man, woman and child in the US.
The fraud went on for many years. If it took years to detect a whopper, so how many smaller "billion dollar" financial frauds are out there and what is that all doing to our country?
There is too much smear by association going on here. How many narcos has Sixto met in his life? Does that mean he is corrupt like them? Of course not. Same applies here. The imagination and conspiratorial thinking just are running wild on this stuff, and it is a shame.
