"A fucking valuable thing"

If you had December 9, 2008, in the "When's the governor going down?" office pool, you win!

You've heard the news about Blago, now read the mind-boggling details in the criminal complaint [pdf]. Did he really think he could get some staffers at the Trib fired? Or wrangle a job in the Obama administration even though he's under investigation? Or appoint himself to Barack Obama's old Senate seat?

The complaint quotes him as saying: "I’m going to keep this Senate option for me a real possibility, you know, and therefore I can drive a hard bargain. You hear what I’m saying. And if I don’t get what I want and I'm not satisfied with it, then I'll just take the Senate seat myself. . . . [The seat] is a fucking valuable thing, you just don’t give it away for nothing."
