I finally figured out how to spell Blagojevich without having to look it up and look what happens. Poor Ron Blagojevich gets himself impeached.
After a four-day trial, the Illinois Senate voted 59-0 on Thursday to convict Blagojevich on the charge of abuse of power. The new governor is Patrick Quinn.
The Senate also voted 59-0 to bar Blagojevich from ever holding public office in the state again. That seems pretty harsh to me.
Maybe Ron Blagojevic should move to Pennsylvania. We don't hold our politicians to such high standards here.
A little thing like an impeachment won't hurt his chance of getting elected in Pennsylvania, which in the words of one veteran political observer is "probably the most corrupt state government in America."
After all, Pennsylvania is home of Congressman John Murtha, former state Sen. Vincent Fumo and the 12 "Bonusgate" defendants.
Blagojevich would fit right in.
