Blogojavich on film

I know that this tends to minimize the Rod Blagojavich (pron: Blagoyavich) scandal, and I fully understand how deeply this kind of corruption threatens democracy, but I can't help it. Only a screenwriter could have created those phone conversations.
It reminds me more than anything else of a 1930's/40's Warner Bros. film. Just think about it, a 1930's/40's film in real life (reel life) in 2008. What in the world is going on here? Anyway here it is

Blagojavich ---- John Garfield
Patrick Fitzgerald ---- Humphrey Bogart
Chief of Staff, John Harris ---- George Raft
Publisher of the Chicago Tribune ---- Edward G. Robinson
Patti Blagojavich (wife) ---- Audrey Totter
Jesse Jackson, Jr. ---- Canada Lee
Barack Obama ---- Clarence Muse
