Some Good News

There is some good news from Illinois today:

CHICAGO (Reuters) - Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, charged with trying to sell the U.S. Senate seat formerly held by President Barack Obama, said on Friday he will not take part in an impeachment trial that could remove him from office.

Good. That should make the trial go much faster.

Blagojevich said this in his defense, according to Reuters:

"If you can throw a governor out with mere allegations ... then no governor will be able to take on the General Assembly the way I did," he said.

Since when is offering to sell a U.S. Senate seat "taking on" his legislature? This guy has done something I didn't think was possible - he's made politicians look even worse.

He can't be gone too soon to suit me.
