Anti-Second Illinois Governor Impeached!

Unfortunately his anti-Second Amendment positions get a free pass, but the Illinois House has voted 114-1 (with a few abstentions) to impeach disgraced Gov. Rod Blagojevich. To the media, Blagojevich has proclaimed his innocence and his desire to fight the charges against him and the impeachment vigorously. However, he hasn’t bothered to testify before the House Impeachment committee or to provide any reason for the corruption charges against him.

Democratic Rep. Monique Davis said:

"If the governor walked down that aisle today, how many of us would fall over ourselves to greet him? I think we'd hold our heads down in shame. We wanted him, we elected him, we supported him and he's disgraced us."

The only individual to vote against impeachment was, no surprise, Chicago Democrat Milton Patterson. What is it about Chicago that seems to make it a breeding ground for corrupt politicians?

I sincerely hope that the people of Chicago and Illinois will take a harder look at their politicians, and stop putting blind faith in a political machine that has produced decades of corruption, payola, and the systematic dismembering of the Second Amendment in Northern Illinois. Unfortunately I’m not hopeful that any substantive change will occur as a result of this scandal.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. At least in Northern Illinois they’ve been following that pattern for at least 80 years.

Until next time!!!
