Understanding Illinois Governors

I am beginning to wonder about the sanity of Illinoisans. And, particularly, about their judgment in picking governors.

The current one, Rod Blagojevich, was arrested this morning. I'm glad, because as long as I've lived in this state (a whole year as of Thanksgiving week!) he has been McShady with a capital "M."

But seriously. If this state doesn't start voting for better governors, the taxpayers are going to have to pay to build a new prison just to hold all of the exes.

(OK. I won't totally blame it on the voters. But c'mon. Maybe now we can try to find some fine, upstanding citizens to run. That's not an oxymoron when it comes to politicians, is it?)

Shhh. Don't say that too loud. He'll hear you and think it's a great idea!

At least we know CB would live in Springtown

Hmm. Governor's mansion in Springfield, tiny brick ranch house in Lincoln. I don't know. It might be a toss-up for him!
