“Get Your Senate Seats Here! Single Seat, Will Trade!”

I love the news that Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich has been arrested for trying to scalp a Senate appointment. This prime example of “pay to play” politics outlines how undemocratic our electoral systems are, regardless of any limits on campaign contributions. I hope that people can see that this type of bullshit, including the attempt to “induce purge of newspaper editorial writers,” is the rule–and not the exception.

  1. Ha. Like this doesn’t happen in Canadian politics all the time. Probably *most* Senate seats here are bought or bribed or blackmailed for one way or another.
