Blagojevich Gets The Boot!

Nice to know that there's still some semblance of justice in politics. Less than an hour ago, the Illinois State Senate unanimously voted to kick disgraced Governor Rod Blagojavich, who as you probably know is under Federal indictment for trying to sell Illinois' seat in the US Senate, out of office.

About bloody time, too.

Honestly, I'm not surprised at all. He didn't really make any effort to defend himself. Actually, that's wrong. He did make an effort, but he made the wrong kind of effort. Instead of testifying at his impeachment hearing, he held a media circus, arrogantly denying the hearings and insisting the charges against him were false.

Would have been a tad more convincing if he'd actually backed up his claims with solid evidence.

Honestly, this is the first bit of really good news I've seen regarding politics in a very long time. Nice to know the system still has some knowledge of justice left.
