WAY-TO-GO Democratic Voters of Illinois !!!

With morally-warped exhibitionist 'Hot' Rod Blagojevich checking-into the Gray Bar Hotel for a spell, you're now looking at FOUR of the last six Illinois governors sent to federal penitentiary- if anyone's still keeping count. The equivalent of batting .666... isn't that special.


Anyhoo, you people sure do know how to pick a winner... and what a swell president you sent us!

As for the shockingly-corrupt Illinois Democratic 'machine', at least they're getting caught, I guess- tho it's hard to say the convictions have produced any sort of deterrent effect.

Call it the Illinois Institute of Kleptocracy... just the way things 'work' in the world's biggest cow town. But the state's politicians couldn't be this bad without friends to help: long before there was Jeffrey Immelt and other Third-Reich-style crony capitalists splitting the loot with Obama on a national scale, there was scamming with the seedy Giannoulias clan back the Windy City while Tony Rezko assisted in screwing low-income housing hopefuls as well as taxpayers (right alongside fellow snake Valerie Jarrett).

Rezko was of course also a key player in Blago's seemingly ceaseless shenanigans, and they went down hard in seperate federal trials (Rezko 10.5 yrs, Blago 14) without singing re. Obama nor Emanuel -when they both surely know plenty- surprising to me at least.  Now watch Obama go and pardon one or both of them next January... that won't surprise anybody.

On the bright side, the state has issued a special commemorative plate to honor the landmark occasion...

Not to dispute your stats, but the last Democrat governor of Illinios to NOT get charged and convicted was Adlai Stevenson back in 1953 (I think). Maybe two of those didn't go to jail, though.

Good grief- thx Paul

If I were an Illinoisian, or whatever they're called, I would buy one of those plates. Gosh, I think they're on to something....every state could have their own little commemorative plate. You could have some fun with the CA plate....I'm thinking a nice Pelosi/Boxer plate :)

"Our Governors make the Plates" the new slogan for Illinois tommorrow.

The great state of Illinois has passed Louisiana in the race for corruption. I would love to see the former senator and current president get caught up in the "Fisherman's Net"!

Give it time, Ron- it's coming imho, Fast n Furious starting to unravel the false Obama narrative as we speak

You know, its funny. I grew up under the original mayor Daley. While he had the machine per say. it doesn't seem you see any of the people from that era (Except I think Kerner possibly?) in prison or caught for want of better words. and while I rarely agreed with them, one can reasonably say without a doubt that Dirkson and Simon were honorable men. As such, I've always wondered what Mayor Daley the original would have to say about the fiasco that is Illinois politics. One thing for sure. I'm almost positive he would take a two by four and whop these people up the side of their heads (including the scum ball of a President)! The man was a machine politician for sure, but he in his own strange way believed in the American principle. And i remember more than once how he paid folks back for straying off the reservation as to questionable behaviors.

Either way,I would pay to see him come back from the grave and slap some sense into those clowns!

Yep- now Rahm as mayor!

Whatever, Chicago
