Politicians never seem to be able to agree on anything. I have often wondered whether there's any single subject that could possibly get an American legislature to vote unanimously. I wonder no more.
All it takes is a little dab of G-Rod.
As you've surely read elsewhere - unless you're nutty enough to come to SFTC as your first choice for breaking news - the Illinois senate voted 59-0 to unload Governor Blagojevich.
In so doing, state senators clearly answered one of the many rhetorical questions Blago asked during his 47-minute closing argument: "How can you throw a governor out of office with insufficient and incomplete evidence?"
Apparently, the ex-gov comparing himself to Gandhi, MLK and... I don't know, did he mention Jesus and Einstein also?... failed to win over his good buddies in the legislature. I know, I'm as surprised as you are.
To celebrate, here's the front page of the Chicago Tribune's web site from this afternoon. If you click to enlarge, you'll see I've circled the vote tally for your reading enjoyment.
