The Onion's 2008 In Review: Politics

In 2008, two Democratic governors, Eliot Spitzer of New York and Rod Blagojevich of Illinois, were disgraced by illegal activities. What do you think?

  • “We should just be grateful that all of this happened at a state level. Can you imagine if one of our presidents had conducted himself in a disgraceful or illegal way?”

    Tammy Hall –
    Provost

  • “Those crazy-ass governors. Thank God all those lieutenant governors are around to pick up the slack.”

    Phil Kuenn –
    Systems Analyst

  • “Oh, sure, pick on the Democratic governors. What about all those people Arnold Schwarzenegger mercilessly mowed down before being crushed by a hydraulic press?”

    Emerson Rocchi –
    Police Officer
