There is an old saying that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. It appears that the word privilege can be substituted here and is still true to this day. One of the few benefits of television and the news media is that we can see this repeated over and over again.

It would appear the recent events with Rod Blagojevich not only illustrate that point but show that hubris is a child of corruption.
