The mystery party ...

My schadenfreude meter is pegged right now,
Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich (bluh-GOY'-uh-vich) has been arrested in Chicago on corruption charges stemming from the selection of the successor to President-elect Barack Obama's U.S. Senate seat. U.S. Attorney's office spokesman Randall Samborn says both Blagojevich and his chief of staff John Harris were arrested Tuesday. Authorities aren't yet releasing details about those charges. However, a federal law enforcement official tells The Associated Press the governor is accused of corruption charges. The official says the charges stem from the selection process of a successor to Obama.
With Rep. Jefferson (D-LA) gone, the Democrats might have thought corruption through their party would drop off the front pages. Nope.

As for the press, they go through the process of doing everything but BROVO-LIMA-ALPHA-ing his name - but do they tell you what party he is a member of? No. No one does .... seriously - only
Fox and Bloomberg in the first dozen or so stories I checked use the "D" word.

Goodness knows, when Republicans have problems - every other word is "Republican." If the press' bias didn't make me laugh so hard - I might actually get angry.

Lex, Allah, and Meer are all over it.
