My Canadian friend over at Liberty Post asked the question, "How far can you stretch the 'truth'?...I'm watch CNN live and is he a sociapath or what? What's the scoop with that Blag guy?"
She was referring to our now ex-governor Rob Blagojevich who was impeached early this evening.
As the Chicago White Sox announcer says, "HE GONE!"
Yes, his behavior is disturbing. It's obvious he's living on that river in Egypt - DENIAL. His behavior and inability to take advice is legendary, resulting in one prestigious law firm dropping him as a client. His most recent lawyer quit. We're glad to be rid of his wife also. She's the one that pressed him to attempt to have reporters at the Chicago Tribune fired because they criticized him. They have not spent one night in our governor's mansion, would not live in our state capital and he was rarely in Springfield when the legislature was in session. If you choose to be in public life you'll need to get over yourself. It's not about you. AT ALL. The latest charges are just the tip of the iceberg. One of the most damning things to come out of this is the attempt by him to hold the chief executive of Children's Memorial Hospital hostage, threatening to withhold $8 million dollars of funding unless he donated to Blagojevich's campaign war chest.
WOW, that didn't take long. Wikipedia has already been updated.
Last night, Pat Quinn, our new governor said, "I hope he's got a ride home because he isn't flying in the state jet."
Here's what we say out in the country - Don't let the door smack you in the a$$. Seriously.
