Greatest Blagojev-hits

Politico went to the trouble of listing all of demented money whore Rod Blagojevich's cash based ramblings and expletives from his indictment. A few TB favorites, swear words edited in:
2. “Fucking golden”: The next day, Blagojevich said again that he would appoint himself to the Senate if he didn’t get what he wanted from the Obama team. “I’ve got this thing and it’s fucking golden,” Blagojevich says. “I’m not giving it up for fucking nothing. I’m not gonna do it. And, and I can always use it. I can parachute me there.”

4. “Selfish grab”: The governor’s chief of staff, John Harris, advised him to avoid making “it look like some kind of selfish grab for a quid pro quo,” but Blagojevich was blunt about his motives: “I want to make money.”

7. Shaking down Buffett and Gates: A day later, on November 11, Blagojevich and one of his advisers discussed the possibility of Obama’s wealthy supporters cobbling together a 501(c)(4) organization for Blagojevich to run. The FBI reports the Illinois governor “raised the idea of the 501(c)(4) organization and asked whether ‘they’ (believed be the President-elect and his associates) can get Warren Buffett and others to put $10, $12, or $15 million into the organization.”

9. White House hopes: Being governor of Illinois, possibly appointing himself to the Senate or taking on a posh private-sector gig wasn’t enough for Blagojevich, who expressed “a desire to remake his image in consideration of a possible run for president in 2016.”

13. Island fortress: One of the main things the governor hoped to land from his shakedown was a lair from which he could expand his crime empire. "You tell that fucking punk Obama if he wants this seat Bill Gates better buy me a goddamn mountain or an island fortress in the South Pacific. He doesn't know who he's fucking with!"

According to the affidavit Blagojevich then stripped to the nude and demanded that his chief of staff John Harris put on the rubber gloves and "Come rub me down with the money in that sack over there, you beautiful bastard." Adding "I hope no one is recording this."
