I’m Going to Disneyland!

blagoearsWell, it finally happened!  Blago was charged with 19 counts in the April 2 indictment handed down by the US District Court in Illinois.   According to the New York Times(I know, ick), Blago:

“used his chance to fill the Senate seat vacated by Barack Obamaas one more money-making plan in a vast racketeering scheme, federal prosecutors said Thursday, an operation they portrayed as the “Blagojevich Enterprise.”

The rest of the story kind of reads like the all familiar ads from the Walt Disney Company.  If I were writing this ad for Disney it would go something like this:

Announcer: “Hey Rod Blagojevich, the US District Court for Northern Illinois has handed down a 19-count indicment charging you with running a vast racketeering scheme.  What are you going to do now?”

Rod Blagojevich: “I’m going to Disneyland!”

According to news reports, Blago was vacationing near Disneyland in Florida.   This stuff just writes itself!

I’ve actually missed our old Governor and all the goofy things he said on a daily basis late last year.  We can all hope that this will usher in a new era of politics, but for that to happen I believe we would have to sever Chicago from the State of Illinois.   Pipe dream, I know.

Of course, this is just my opinion.
