Welcome to Illinois. Land of Lincoln. Abraham, that is, the one currently spinning in his grave.
We knew our state was corrupt. We knew the Mafia was alive and well. I went to college in the suburb some of them call home.
What we didn't know was the extent to which our Governor was corrupt. We knew he was, just not how badly.
Can you spell S-O-C-I-O-P-A-T-H? It's sure as hell a lot easier to spell than Blagojevich, which we just shorten to "Bastard."
On the bright side, we'll soon be needing a new governor!
