A little different

There was so much to talk about today. Blago had some good stuff in the NY Times, Drew Peterson's fiancee awoke from her coma, and Exxon had a 45 billion dollar profit in 2008.
However, I got this cool five minute video in my email from Laura Jurkovic that makes everything moot. Absorb.

Life is good. Spring training is near.

Life is good having the president as a Sox fan. We know who the Cubs highest ranking fan used to be.


I was wondering, if Blago is ousted while in the air on the state plane do they eject him?

This could be f*****g golden!

Gov. Rod Blagojevich will come to Springfield to make the closing argument in his own impeachment trial Thursday.

Lucio Guerrrero, Blagojevich’s spokesman, said the governor wants to defend himself and also is responding to comments made by Senate President John Cullerton the past two days in which he urged Blagojevich to appear.

Here's what he'll say, "I was offering a golden opportunity to somebody and wanted to give them $10,000 of my own money to fill Obama's seat. I love the people of Illinois so much and wanted to make sure the right person represented them. Everything I said on the talk shows the past week was taken out of context. They're all mofos."

Gimme a break!

A top-ranking Republican says GOP lawmakers are worried about the level of domestic spending in the $825 billion economic stimulus bill now before the House.

House Republican Leader John Boehner said Republicans are "for more than just cutting taxes." But he also said the bill before lawmakers for a vote Wednesday contains spending that "has nothing to do with creating jobs or preserving jobs."

The Republicans have spent hundreds of billions on Iraq, but when it comes to our country they're spending too much? These clowns should have followed Bush home.

Blago saves the blog

I didn't know what to write about today. I could write about myself but I don't want to drive readers away, I had nine yesterday woohoo. But then just as I thought of writing nothing, is it possible to write nothing, along came America's favorite funny man Rod Blagojevich.

NEW YORK – Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich says he hasn't ruled out legal action if he is convicted at his impeachment trial.

Blagojevich told The Associated Press on Tuesday that he would respect "the law and the Constitution and the rules" if legislators vote him out of office. But he'll explore his legal options.

The Democrat says he knows he soon could be out of a job but says he didn't do anything wrong.

What legal options could this man possibly have at this juncture? Maybe he'll sue to get the Senate seat back from Roland Burris.

If he truly respected the law and Constitution he'd be at his impeachment trial and not on his comedy tour. Better yet if he did have respect he would not try to sell the Senate seat in the first place. But, since he did please respect the people of Illinois and resign now.

Obama the father.

This is a great letter President Obama wrote to his daughters before the inauguration. Pretty good insight to the man. It was in Parade Magazine.

"When I was a young man, I thought life was all about me -- about how I'd make my way in the world, become successful, and get the things I want. But then the two of you came into my world,"

"I realized that my own life wouldn't count for much unless I was able to ensure that you had every opportunity for happiness and fulfilment in yours. In the end, girls, that's why I ran for President: because of what I want for you and for every child in this nation,"

And he spoke of his vision of a United States that has reached "beyond the divides of race and region, gender and religion that keep us from seeing the best in each other."

"These are the things I want for you -- to grow up in a world with no limits on your dreams and no achievements beyond your reach, and to grow into compassionate, committed women who will help build that world,"

"And I want every child to have the same chances to learn and dream and grow and thrive that you girls have. That's why I've taken our family on this great adventure".

Oprah just turned the color purple!

Gov. Rod Blagojevich tells ABC that he considered appointing Oprah Winfrey to the empty U.S. Senate seat vacated by President Barack Obama.

He tells "Good Morning America" that the idea of nominating the talk show host came to him as he explored potential candidates for the job that federal prosecutors allege he tried to sell to the highest bidder.

Blagojevich says "she was obviously someone with a much broader bully pulpit than other senators."

The governor says he worried that the appointment of Winfrey might come across as a gimmick and the talk show host was unlikely to accept.

Rod you do realize by invoking the name of Oprah your best selling prison tell all book won't make her book club?

Impeached Gov. Blagojevich, on the first leg of his media blitz timed to the start of his impeachment trial, in an NBC interview broadcast on The Today Show Sunday compared himself to human rights heroes Nelson Mandela, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Mahatma Gahdhi.

This makes me Brad Pitt or George Clooney then.
