Wanna Buy a Senate Seat?

Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich was arrested this morning for conspiring to give away President-elect Obama's vacant Senate seat in exchange for gifts for him and his wife.

Blago apparently also planned on filling the seat himself if he didn't get an offer he liked.

Yeah, I'm sure that would have gone over really well with the people of Illinois, where has literally like a 5% approval rating or something.

Were he to take the seat himself (guess that's off the table now), Blago thought being a senator could help him remake his image in preparation for a - get this - presidential campaign in 2016.

Hmmm... something tells me that the Oval Office is permanently out of reach for Mr. Blagojevich. Just a guess, though.
