Blagojevich continued: Name that Scandal!

What to call the Blagojevich scandal? Mark Krikorian on The Corner bemoans the banality of the ubiquitous “gate” suffiix.  Blagogate?  Senategate?  Tired indeed.

My wife Sheryl Longin has a suggestion:  Blag-oy-veh!  [Well, she has a point.  Ethnic name, ethnic scandal.-ed. That’s what I thought. And it fits for Rahm Emanuel! Didn’t you read on Drudge?  He’s not a target of the probe. Well, it’s still a good name.]
