IL Gov Rod Blagojevich approval rating is 8%

Shouldn't it be Zero?

The approval rating for Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich (blah-GOY'-uh-vich) is just 8%.

That's the finding from a survey of people in Illinois in the days since his arrest this week on corruption charges.

The poll by the Chicago-based Glengariff Group finds 73% of those who were surveyed would support his impeachment. Seventy percent say he should resign.

Both Dr. Taylor at Poliblog and Doug at Below the Beltway crack 'who knew the Governor's family was so big."

In a rare moment of seriousness, I will point out that only 600 people were polled. 50 crackpots out of a group that large sounds about right to me.

Better the devil you know etc....

The Exposer:

Problem is, Mr. Wood, you cannot sell a Senate seat (not to say they're not BOUGHT all the time, especially by Democrat party politicians, much like how $1 billion bought the Presidency), only that a single Governor cannot legally sell the office and collect the proceeds for himself.
