No Chicagoan can be truly surprised by Blago’s pay-to-play approach to politics. You think he’s the first to try that around here? But the drama of the complaint is undeniable. The New Yorker‘s Ben Greenman captures its whimsical side with “Fragments of Blagojevich! The Musical” and for Salon, Choire Sicha sets it to Mamet in Glengarry Rod Blagojevich.

Over here at the Reader we feel a bit like Greenman’s FBI guys in the van.

Oh my God
Oh my God
Thank you, Lord
Thank you, Rod
Most of all, I give thanks
To our wonderful host Bill
In the past I doubted you
But now I never will

It’s been a long time since we had this much fun.
