Now that's how you do it!

Nettlesome federal prosecutors have been all up in Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich's business, busting him for allegedly trying to parlay Barack Obama's open Senate seat into not only a cash payment up front, but a big job for himself (and his wife) down the line.

According to the federal complaint, one of the suitors for the job offered $500,000, which is a respectable bribe.

Boston politicians, take note. We've got a pair facing federal corruption charges here who pocketed $24,500 between them. They're getting hosed! You can't even buy a mug of beer for that much around here. About $9,000 of the bribes went to secure a liquor license that's easily worth $250k or more.

Massachusetts bribe takers should take a lesson from Rod. Hold out for some real dough.

The real question is, how much does he pay for that haircut ? Inquiring minds want to know.
