    They interrupted Tom Cruise's interview on the View to announce it. It was classic! :th_sleeping-smiley-015:

    Wonder what this will do with the Burris drama at the Senate?
    Technically, Burris had every right to be there (excepting Jesse White's not signing the certification) as Blago was/is at present still acting governor. At least Burris had as much right as Franken, who Reid said would be allowed in. Raises some dicey questions as to Constitutional law and the Senate picking who they will allow and wh they won't -- which is pretty damn against the spirit of the Constitution reaching back to the Articles of Confederacy.

    But as for Blago -- about damn time he got ousted; wonder what will be next for IL? I'm getting sick of Chicago machine politics.

    Anyone hear his news conference at 2? Just wondering what his arrogance had to say.

    :D Never mind, I just saw it replayed. You gotta love his body language when he's really pissed off and has to hold back. It's the Blago hop, his hands push down on the podium and his heels go up. Looks like he's about to leap frog over the podium.

    Some great wit needs to make up a song called the Blago Hop -- sung to the tune of "Time Warp" ala RHPS :th_afrique:

    How much did Rep. Patterson get paid to vote no for impeachment?

    How can only one person vote no???????

    Blago belongs in a cell along side Ryan------ He will be the 4th Illinois governor to go to jail just in recent years. (????)
