Ding dong the Governors Gone.

Well it looks like the circus involving the Illinois governor is over; Ill. senate votes 59-0 to remove Gov. Blagojevich.

YES!!!!! I've never seen a more incompetent politician in my political experience. I'm sure there are more out there, but I just have never had it where their incompetency directly impacted me before.

I kind of figured he was going to get impeached, and removed from office, but this surprised me:

"After a four-day trial, the Illinois Senate voted 59-0 to convict him of abuse of power, automatically removing the second-term Democrat. Democratic Lt. Gov. Patrick Quinn, one of his critics, immediately became governor.

In a second 59-0 vote, the Senate further barred Blagojevich from ever holding public office in Illinois again."

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Serves him right. I'm just wondering if this ego maniacal, delusional, corrupt, sociopath is going to try to take up politics in a different state. Hey, maybe Obama will give him a position... Secretary of pot hole filling!

Honestly, I figured he would be impeached and booted out of office. I was pretty sure they would never let him hold a political office in Illinois, the fact that the man didn't have anyone in the senate to stand up for him is surprising. All 59 of the Illinois senators voted yes to booting him out. That has to be a blow to the ego.

Now we just have to wait for the Feds to get done with him. With that Big Boy Restaurant mascot haircut of his, I bet he'd have a good time in prison.

I'm glad his out. But What I'm scared of He is going to skip and Not be found anywhere. I could be wrong but when you are arrested on Felony and Federal charges your not suppose to leave that State? Now I could be wrong but I don't think I am.
That crazy Bas---- will get in his space ship and disapear to Blago.

Blago jumping bail would be perfect. None of the transcripts released show any overt act that can get him convicted of anything but pottymouth.

I'm hoping that Fitzgerald has a little something hidden away, this smells a lot like Nifong and the Duke Lacrosse Team. Whatever Lacrosse is.

I was really beginnig to enjoy the antics of Blago. I think he should get a daytime talk show. I would watch on days off..if I was sick... cause day time television sucks.
