The Words Used to Describe Governor Blagojevich
As an Illinoisan, it has not been enjoyable to see our state getting top-story news for yet another Governor getting busted for corruption.
There has been extensive coverage on this "event" and strong words have been used to describe our Governor's behavior. This post is a compilation of one-word reactions from various sources.
U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald - staggering, corrupt, arrogant
Court papers - greedy, vindictive
Chicago Mayor, Richard Daley - sad
Former Governor, Jim Edgar - unbelievable
Illinois Rep. Chapin Rose - awful
Illinois Rep. Bill Black - audacious
More Illinois lawmakers - disgusting, embarrassing
Jim VandeHei, Politico - shameful, delusional
Words heard from various newscasters - explosive, shocking, staggering, brazen, abomination
Viewer comments from cbs2chicago.com - reckless, overdue, deplorable, outlandish
Back in September of 2006, when he was asked about the accusations that led to the investigations into his activities, Rod Blagojevich had his own one-word reactions: absurd, ludicrous, ridiculous.
My one-word reaction to that...REALLY?
My one-word reaction to the charges against him...Disgraceful!
What's your one-word reaction?
