He is hitting the talk-show circuit this morning, while his impeachemnt hearing gets underway. Also told ABC he had considered Oprah to replace Obama in the Senate. Is this guy for real? Who voted for this guy? Did he run on the Perpetually Entertaining Party ticket??? Enquiring minds want to know!

He's a piece of work isn't he.He's no different than alot we still have in office around here though.There's still plenty where he comes from.The rest are just pretending they don't know him anymore.I personally don't know anyone who voted for him.I think most of the Democrats here get thier votes in Chicago.It's more conservative around the suburbs.I know during the last election I complained to the States Attornys office because his campaign people put up a 4' x 8' Blagojevich sign on our property without permision.I'll probably sell it on E-Bay someday as a souvenier of our first inmpeached governor.
Illinois still,suprisingly,only ranks # 17th as far as convicted,corrupt polititians.As you can see,they are working hard to get to #1.

Enjoy Larry King tonight.It should be a good laugh.

Oh come on Lisa, don't be so hard on the Illinois political machine. It has the best politicians money can buy!!

Although, I'm surprised Oprah wasn't appointed Ambassador to the Court of St. James or some other special position, after all she paid for it ;-)

Blah son of a bitch.

I'm not an Illinois attorney, so I don't know how their constitution is written. All I know is that he's an idiot.

He looks kind of like Alfred E Newman too.

Thinks like him, too ("What, me worry?")

Corruption is the grease that keeps the Illinois/Chicago political machine running smooth. Remove the grease and the machine grinds to a halt. Sad but true.

HA!

Here in New York, our politicians may be sleazy, but at least they are honest! Our last Governor did NOT use taxpayer money to pay for his high-priced call girls! The investigation proved it!

Our hot dogs are better.

Anyway, looks like he got the most out of his fifteen minutes of fame before being dragged off in handcuffs!

In a twisted way, he is very straight-up about being crooked. Like: "Yeah, they are impeaching me right at this moment, so I am going to get whatever I can out of this situation." Wait a minute, isn't that what got him into this mess in the first place?

I was a lobbyist in Springfield back in the early-90s when Blago was a freshman state congresscritter who only got elected because of the influence of his father-in-law Chicago Alderman Dick Mell.

We knew he was trouble back then, he was blatantly dishonest and conducted his political activities in a shady manner. We called him "blabbermouth," because of the difficulty in pronouncing his last name, and everyone knew who we were talking about. He would just stand up and lie, cold, calculated, lie.

I watched unbelievingly as he skipped over the State Senate to get elected to the US House.

Then I watched stunned as he was elected to the office of Governor, not once but TWICE. :shock: :roll:

For over a decade those of us on the right said he was trouble because we had NEVER EVER seen a politician so dishonest! But all our warnings were just chalked up to "partisanship" by those on the left. Now everyone knows.

I will never again underestimate the ignorance of Illinois voters.
