I enjoy dropping the F bomb as much as anybody, so I'm not really casting stones. But I think the predominance of profanity in the criminal complaint (PDF) is pretty fucking hilarious. I found 18 examples of the F word.
1: ROD BLAGOJEVICH told Individual A that Lobbyist 1 was going to approach Highway Contractor 1 to ask for $500,000 for Friends of Blagojevich. ROD BLAGOJEVICH told Individual A that, "I could have made a larger announcement but wanted to see how they perform by the end of the year. If they don't perform, fuck 'em." (pg. 33)
2-3: During the call, ROD BLAGOJEVICH's wife can be heard in the background telling ROD BLAGOJEVICH to tell Deputy Governor A "to hold up that fucking Cubs shit. . . fuck them." (pg. 44)
4: ROD BLAGOJEVICH said that he thinks that they should put this all together and then have HARRIS or somebody go talk to the Tribune owners and say, "Look, we've got decisions to make now. . . moving this stuff forward (believed to be a reference to the IFA helping with the Cubs sale) . . . someone's gotta go to [Tribune Owner], we want to see him . . it's a political fuckin' operation in there." (pg. 45)
5: ROD BLAGOJEVICH said Tribune Owner should be told "maybe we can't do this now. Fire those fuckers." (pg. 45)
6-7: ROD BLAGOJEVICH stated that "our recommendation is fire all those fucking people, get 'em the fuck out of there and get us some editorial support." (pg. 46)
8: Later, ROD BLAGOJEVICH stated that the Senate seat "is a fucking valuable thing, you just don't give it away for nothing." (pg. 56)
9-10: In regards to the Senate seat, ROD BLAGOJEVICH stated "I've got this thing and it's fucking golden, and, uh, uh, I'm just not giving it up for fuckin' nothing. I'm not gonna do it. And, and I can always use it. I can parachute me there." (pg. 59)
Eight more F bombs, including calling Barack Obama a "motherfucker," after the jump...
11-13: ROD BLAGOJEVICH said that the consultants (Advisor B and another consultant are believed to be on the call at that time) are telling him that he has to "suck it up" for two years and do nothing and give this "motherfucker [the President-elect] his senator. Fuck him. For nothing? Fuck him." (pg. 63)
14-15: ROD BLAGOJEVICH states that he will put "[Senate Candidate 4]" in the Senate "before I just give fucking [Senate Candidate 1] a fucking Senate seat and I don't get anything." (pg. 64)
16-17: ROD BLAGOJEVICH states that he will appoint "[Senate Candidate 1] . . . but if they feel like they can do this and not fucking give me anything . . . then I'll fucking go [Senate Candidate 5]." (p. 65)
18: ROD BLAGOJEVICH said he knows that the President-elect wants Senate Candidate 1 for the Senate seat but "they're not willing to give me anything except appreciation. Fuck them." (pg. 66)
