This was not just any Senate seat. This was Barrack Friggin' Obama's seat. You could get more on Craig's List for it than the Governor of Illinois was holding out for. With this level of cluelessness and mismanagement, it's no wonder the state has financial problems. Hell, Pabst would have cut him a check for a mill for that seat. Rev. Wright's church could have bought it for him. But this Gov. Smalltime is looking for a board slot for his wife? You kiddin' me? It's just very disappointing.
