Well, he got his political trial.  But to call that anything but a kangaroo court would be a lie.

If they deny his pensions, this will deny him his civil right to a fair trial, since he will not be able to pay for defense counsel that's comparable to the DOJ onslaught.

All security detail for the gov are getting in their cars and splitting. One of them took a car seat out of the back of the security van, and put it in his garage.

Well, I did see that, but really, what was the evidence? Besides his crazy phone call, we haven't seen any other proof of wrong doing.

It's always good when we practice what the Constitution demands.  Rod Balgojevich is still innocent as far as the law is concerned.  Those who heard the tapes were not convinced that they contained indicting evidence.

Those who are so quick to call others nasty things are the first to object when the tables are turned.  And when that happens, they deserve no sympathy.

Here I'm going to agree with Beaker, and wave a happy buh-bye to Blago. He is/was a corrupt politician, blatantly guilty of simony.  He had extreme balls in trying to brazen his way through this, and you've almost got to admire that, up to a point. But he is a criminal, and deserves to go away. To a PRISON.

I am not happy that he insisted on making a senatorial appointment even after he was unmasked. Burris may or may not be a good choice, but Blagojevich forfeited his right, really, to make that choice for the people of Illinois once his corruption was made known. Blagojevich is a demagogic hack, a hideously corrupt official, a shame to the Democratic Party, a fool in denial, and a personal sleazebag.

Good, good riddance. Good job, Illinois, in impeaching him. Thankfully we can get on with more important things than this petty soap opera.

We got rid of one of our own Corrupt Democratic Regime Leaders here in Massachusetts this past week:


Soon to be Felon Massachusetts House of Representatives Speaker Sal Di Masi resigns, only to be replaced as Speaker by equally ethically challenged Democrat DeLeo.

And frustrating when we can't.

Thank goodness the water temp was 42 degrees, hypothermia doesn't usually set in as quickly.  I'd think the air temp of 20 was pretty bad.  They must have been so cold

Does anyone know why the plane didn't sink after the escape hatch doors were opened?


 
I heard one of the CNN talking heads say that the water was 20°.  Sometimes...sheez...

The plane had quite a load of  jet fuel.  That might be one thing.
