"THIS MOTHERFUCKER."

My apologies for breaking TAPPED's family blog policy [Eds. Note--In the immortal words of Sam Rosenfeld, "TAPPED is a family blog."] but the following excerpt from the criminal complaint against Rod Blagojevich is really too good to censor. In the midst of trying to auction off Obama's former senate seat either for a high paying job in the SEIU-affiliated Change To Win organization, a cabinet appointment in the Obama administration, or simply for financial benefits, Blagojevich apparently became frustrated with Obama's refusal to play ball in order to secure the seat for Obama's preferred candidate (identified in the complaint as Candidate 1.) From page 63-64 of the complaint:

ROD BLAGOJEVICH said that the consultants (Advisor B and another consultant are believed to be on the call at that time) are telling him that he has to “suck it up” for two years and do nothing and give this “motherfucker [the President-elect] his senator. Fuck him. For nothing? Fuck him.” ROD BLAGOJEVICH states that he will put [Senate Candidate 4]” in the Senate “before I just give fucking [Senate Candidate 1] a fucking Senate seat and I don’t get anything.”

Conservatives hoping that Obama himself was caught up in Blagojevich's corruption may end up being just as disappointed.
