Blago, the guy with the better hair, big loser this time round

As luck would have it I was away from my blog central when the Blago news hit, but saw it was coming on twitter and listened to the verdicts read on my satellite radio by Shep Smith (awk), but I couldn't stand the insufferable legal guy on CNN.

So Blago's effin golden for the good of Illinois defense didn't work as he wished. After suffering through his second in command as governor, another bumbler, in a worse economic and less forgiving political environment, voters, uh jurors were all business.

At least someone legitimately is in this state. (Will the Chicago Way go the way of the dodo bird? Don't count on it.)

Or it could be the jury of 11 women (and one guy) knew they had been picked by the feckless Blago defense team under the sexist theory they'd go with the guy with the better hair.

And they decided to do the people's business, and convict this corrupt pol.

(So who's next? Best bet to vote him out) In final nod to Governor Elvis, maybe you'll be a hit in prison. A captive audience, shall we say: More links: Chicago Daily Observer wonders about Dem reaction. Newsalert on Illinois' horrifically corrupt history.

Memeorandum thread.

Pundit & Pundette, thanks for the blog links, reminds us of his unusual musings.

Anne, I'm not sure I'll ever recover from watching that video. I'm all shook up!

There's a prison barber somewhere who will be very happy soon.
