Anyway, after delivering their fox-guarding-the-hen-house report exonerating themselves (I repeat -themselves!), they let their guard down. And Blagojevich said, "Aw-w-w yeah! But you got to do better than those Madigan pawns you threw at me - he with this and she, who, incidentally, is also on the list for the same seat (no conflict there!), with this thing! Okay, let's play! And by the way - Check!" Too rich!
I could be wrong but, legally, since he's not been convicted of anything, doesn't he have every right to do his job - as the governor - and fill that seat? The premature indictment (shouldn't they have waited until some money actually changed hands or something?) is technically, just that - isn't it? Hell, nobody kept William Jefferson from doing a damn thing while under indictment for that $90,000 block of ice in his freezer (among others charges)! She-e-e-et, he's still under indictment more than a year and a half later! Even though he lost, he was allowed to conduct business as usual, trying to get re-elected.
And I wonder now, if my people are having any critical discussions about flocking to the Changeling like some "Great Black Hope?" Seems Bobby Rush is trying to give them something to chew on.
I have no doubt however, with Obama & Co., the Illinois legislature and the U.S. Congress all chomping at the bit to get rid of this guy, there'll be some kind of check-mate coming soon. Unless of course, the governor really has, and intends to use, some of that good, ole Chicago dirt he's saved-up. I don't know what's next, but I've got a huge supply of hot, buttered popcorn for the next installment of, "As the Crooked Obama World Turns."
