Tom Tancredo has a better idea for punishing the 71-year-old convicted swindler, who was sentenced Monday to 150 years in prison for masterminding the largest Ponzi scheme in history.

Gunny Bob, Caldara, Rosen try to tie Obama to Blagojevich

In their latest extensive — can we say exhaustive? — compilation of jaw-drop-inducing yakking of right-wing radio heads, Colorado Media Matters lays out recent ad hominem efforts to tie Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich to President-elect Barack Obama, despite U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald’s specific caution to "not cast aspersions on people" named or discussed in the criminal complaint against Blagojevich.
