Exposing The Illinois Way

The corruption trial of former Ilinois Governor Rod Blagojevich is red meat for political junkies and those who enjoy exposing the seamy side of politics.  It makes for good reading if you want to be disabused of naive thoughts about how our political processes often work.  John Kass’s column today discusses some of the details that are emerging.

It helps to remember that, for every altruistic do-gooder who goes into politics to save the world, there are many others who go into politics to line their pockets and the pockets of their friends.   Guess which category is more successful?
