Our Governor

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.

I thought of you right after hearing the news. That guy was a doozy and never deserved to be governor of any state.

I am so curious to see what he does next.
Late night talk show host?
Infomercials?
Reality show?

He put the crazy in crazy!

I bet it was a great relief for this particular chapter to end.

Congratulations! Glad the state of Illinois did the right thing. We're all sick of arrogant politicians that behave as though they are gifts from God.

It is amazing how such audacious arrogance is finally dealt it's due. He was so full of himself that he just didn't get it.

How on earth did that joker ever get elected? Was the election rigged? I'm amazed by this whole thing.

I heard that they are covering his name from all the toll roads in our neck of the woods. The only thing is it will cost nearly as much as him putting the name there in the first place. So glad he is gone, now wish he was forgotten. He is so like Drew Peterson...

I watched him give his "closing arguments" yesterday..he made himself look foolish...but it was very entertaining!

bj said...

Yep..I got the impression that the 48 minute speech he gave yesterday didn't have diddly to do with wanting to keep his job...the man is tryin' his damndest to stay out of prison but, got news for him...I'm pretty sure he is ON HIS WAY !
Sure hope your new gov. is a good one!!

What a joke he AND his wife are. Let them both go work at Wal-Mart.

It will be interesting to see if any of the ludicrous statements in his "Farewell Tour" on TV earlier in the week will influence the jury in his upcoming trial...
