Governor Greedy gonna sing like a bird?

The last thing Barack Obama needed was a Chicago corruption scandal, and with Governor Blogojovich's mind-numbing crime spree we have the mother of all scandals.

This guy's pure, unadulterated, naked greed -- caught on tape -- is going to sit over the news cycle like a mushroom cloud for weeks to come.

Chicago politics is a small word where everyone knows everyone else's (corrupt) business.  The chances of Axelrod, Emanuel, et. al not knowing the players in and around the Illinois statehouse are slim to none.  Axelrod, in fact, worked for Blogo at one point, and Emanuel took his Congressional seat when Blogo moved to the statehouse.  And Blogo's primary fundraiser:  none other than Sweet Tony Rezco. Yowza.

The most curious aspect to all this: On November 23rd David Axelrod said on Fox News that Barack Obama had been in touch with Governor Blogo about his Senate successor.   Today, however, Obama said that he had no contact with Governor Greedy.  Hmmmm ... someone is misremembering.

You can rest assured the right wing blogosphere is going to be in overdrive the next few weeks combing through every link between Obama and Blogojovich.  The real question: Does Blogo start signing like a canary when he realizes he's going away for a long, long time?  And keep in mind, the US Attorney in charge is Patrick Fitzgerald -- the man who put Scooter Libby in jail.  To call him a relentless prosecutor would be an understatement.

I have a feeling this scandal is going to extend way beyond Blogo the greedy.
