Will Blagojevich Walk? Hope Not

One thing about Illinois that you can bet on is that the Chicago River on St. Patrick’s Day will be painted green
The other is that from governors to aldermen convicted politicians have headed to prison in a steady stream
Unruh once said that money is the politicians’ mothers’ milk
In Illinois it is also fraud and deception to the voters to bilk
The news today that Blagojevich the most recent of 4 out of the last 7 governors to serve time
Prevailed on an appeals court to toss out 5 of his 18 convicted crimes
This icon of virtue tried to sell Obama’s soon to be vacant Senate seat for cash
Typical Illinois politics for someone dishonest and very brash
If one would wonder why our commander in chief finds it so easy to the voters lie
Just look to his political past where fraud and deception is something most politicians there cannot deny
In Illinois fraud and deception is too often the political norm
No wonder Obama’s dishonesty he did not try to tone down or reform
Blago remains in prison while the feds determine whether to retry
For the forces of good government he has one five year sentence for lying to the FBI
Fraud in government is to be expected from the millions on the government dole
But not from the elected officials or bureaucrats where it guts our Republic’s soul.
Having so said
Let’s hope Blago spends more years waking up in a prison bed
