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.
