Oh, Chicago.

In light of the disasterousness that has surrounded the Illinois governor’s seat, I thought it might be fun to partake in a mini-history lesson in the true spirit of exposing clusterfuckcorruptionness of Illinois:

Ergo, let’s review:

Dec 9th, United States V. Rod Blagojevich and John Harris (aka, the Criminal Complaint, aka, my favorite book of 2008) is filed, and the people of Illinois, flush from their recent victory and glistening with the victorious Obama Glory Glow, unanimously throw puppies at the governor.

Blah blah, scandal, blah blah. US Senators call for Blago to resign, and cross every appendage they have in the hopes that he might not appoint a replacement senator, since, you know, they have no legal method to block the appointment.

Blago appoints Roland Burris. Illinois weeps a little, and smells something fishy.

Burris swears under oath he didn’t talk to Blago about the position.

Blago rants to the Illinois senate that he did nothing wrong and Hey!Look! Someone has health care.

Illinois senate says, “Yeah, whatever, Fucktard.

Blago talks to reporters. Again. Blago shows off his spanish skillz. SI SE PUEDE!!

Burris apparently did lie. Or at least didn’t tell the whole truth. Oops?¬† Illinois groans in unison.

Unrelated news, but in the true essence of Chicago politics, Mayor Daley strong arms the Chicago Board of Education president to step down.

Democrats decide that chapter #27 in soap opera Liars of Illinois has gone on far enough, and call, once more, for someone’s resignation – this time Burris’.

Governor Quinn adds his voice to that call.

Burris’ Chief of staff quits.

Obama fires a warning shot.

And Mayor Daley says, “Hey, he’s not all that bad!” Oh and the stimulus bill wouldn’t have passed without him. Sure.

Illinois cries for the days when everyone knew them only for Obama.

Ooooh Illinois politics. I’m going to hope that Daley is next on Patrick Fitzgerald’s list.
