We don’t want to make too much hay out of Adam Kinzinger’s statement on Rod Blagojevich – but we’re going to say something. If Huffington Post can SEO bomb the internet, why can’t we? (See word of the day: opportunistic)
NOTE: If you want to read Kinzinger statement, you may scroll to the bottom.
If you want to read our comparisons of Rod Blagojevich to Adam Kinzinger, start reading…now!
- “Kinzinger & Blagojevich” – Those two names have proven exceedingly difficult for many in the public to not just spell, but pronounce.
- “Elvis and Schock” – Where as one is a legitimate star that is compared to a politician, the other is a pseudo celebre-tician who Kinzinger is compared to. Group A has stylish hair, Group B have t-rex arms (too much?)
- “Opportunism” – Pot calling the kettle black? Blagojevich needs no explanation here. Kinzinger, on the other hand, is a subtle opportunist. Heck, one might even say his statement on Blagojevich today is opportunistic. His ability to spin around his vote to privatize Medicare (aka his MediScare campaign), his willingness to campaign against constituent mailings and then become the biggest spender on mail in the GOP Freshmen class, him campaigning in military gear whilst cutting spending for homeless veterans, the list could go on…
Actually, that might be all of we’ve got.
Here you are, Kinzinger’s statement:
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Representative Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) today issued the following statement in response to the partial verdict in the retrial of Rod Blagojevich, former governor of Illinois:
“Rod Blagojevich never seemed to understand the difference between serving the public and serving his personal self interests. The evidence presented and verdict confirms that he was found guilty of seventeen of the twenty counts including wire fraud, extortion and attempting to sell President Obama’s old Senate seat, but far worse, he abused and shattered public trust. The shame and national embarrassment Blagojevich cast onto our state has only created further financial bearing.
“I applaud the U.S. Attorney’s office for their hard work, dedication and effort to see to it that justice has somewhat been served. Unfortunately, Blagojevich’s verdict and punishment will not restore statewide, much less nationwide certainty in Illinois. We must now move beyond Rod Blagojevich and turn our focus toward working together to rebuild Illinois.”
