Blago Gets 14 Years

Rod Blagojevich was sentenced to 14 years. If he serves his full term, he will be released in 2025.

By then, one of Mayor Daley's kids will be in charge, Sarah Palin will be facing off Hillary Clinton for the White House, and the Democrats will blame George W. Bush for whatever is the trouble of the moment. Rush Limbuagh will point fingers with Jon Stewart, because both will have lost their voice, and the Simpsons TV Show will be tying up another great season.

Blago Sentenced

As Rod Blagojevich is being sentenced, he asked that important question:

"Do I get to sing "Jailhouse Rock? Can I keep my Elvis Presley hair?"

The judge, amused, stood up, and dueted the song with him. The prosecutors were not amused, feeling this only gave them a bad name.

And somewhere, Michael Madigan is humming the same tune, grateful he is nowhere near a jail.

Meanwhile, Illinois Governor Pat Quinn is delighted, knowing he really never would have gotten this job any other way.

Rod Blagojevich Gets New Illinois License Plate

No doubt anticipating his next move, Rod Blagojevich applies for, and gets his Illinois license plate. He slipped former Governor George Ryan a few bucks to make it happen.

(repost, but this time, it looks closer to truth)

Blagojevich Jurors Have Reached Partial Verdict

Some say Rod Blagovich has nice hair, but they were beaten to a pulp by the GHU (Good Hair Union, Local 123). Passersby just walked on by, staring, singing Elvis songs.

Regarding the other two counts, the jury is holding for decorum's sake.

Blagojevich Trial: The Tragedy of Macbeth: SCENE V. Dunsinane. "Full of Sound and Fury"

"The prosecution of Rod Blagojevich is “a tale of sound and fury, signifying nothing,” a lawyer for the former governor told the jury during opening statements at his retrial, quoting Shakespeare and touching on a key theme for the defense."

She should have died hereafter;
There would have been a time for such a word.
To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time,
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.
