Thankfully, this is something that is almost guaranteed.

He's pissed too many people off. Even in his hometown of Shitcago.

I'm sure Mrs. Governor Ferretface isn't too happy with him either.

That was a great article.

Sure, Blojo has balls. But, he has them stuck up his ass along with his head, so they really aren't doing him any good.

Something like that.

He is a liar. Lied to the labor unions(big deal considering my dad is in IUOE) about jobs. He lied to the residents about the tolls.

What a moron.

Blago MIGHT be the best thing that we could have hoped for. Think about it:

After Emperor George Ryan, it was nearly a done deal that we'd get a Democrat (like Ryan wasn't!) in office. Imagine if we'd gotten an effective, centrist guy/girl who was a good communicator, had the common touch and got lots of high profile stuff done. Now imagine if that person was anti-gun...


Goblowabitch has pretty much torpedoed his own chances for reelction, and certainly taken some of the post-Ryan momentum away from the Democrats. Now we can discuss Jim Edgar running with a straight face.

So everyone write the governor and thank him for being so inept!

Guys don't right him off so fast. He has 15,000,000 already in his war chest for re-election. I don't like him, but this is reality. What name recognition player do we have? That will play upstate and downstate.

...and what recognition did Blowbagofshit have? He was just "not Ryan." It only helps us that the Repub candidate in the next race can be "not Blowbagofshit."

His $15m is formidable, but Illinois elections aren't for sale--witness Jack Ryan, Alan Keyes, and Blair Hull if you don't believe that.

The fact that he can't get along with his own damn father in law (who got him started politically) and powerful members of his party is a great big liability. Nevertheless, if the last few elections are any indication, the Illinois Republicans are more than able to eclipse Blago's ineptness.

What the Repubs really need is one huge, glaring, Blago mistake, instead of a thousand little ones. That, and a fairly centrist candidate that Blago's former supporters can live with.

This is my biggest beef with him. I knew he was an anti-gun bigot when he came in so there was no surprise there, but his back-yard tax increase via the tollways, even after he pledged no increase in taxes is outrageous. Asking people to pay $50 for an Ipass even if they don't use it often is insane. Well that's $50 the state gets for no reason that they can put in their coffers.

Some of my exit tolls went from 40 cents to $1.00. Who is in charge of this crap?

I will vote for the first guy that pledges to roll back the tolls.

Sorry about that. Blojo is just such an easy target, and it's hard to resist the cheap shot.

That's a good question. There are hundreds of Democraps out there, but what do we have?

Oberweis?
LaHood?

Edgar is a RINO. He was (and still probably is) very anti-gun.

The problem is not only with the "Gov" but with the IL Tollway Authority.

Our last four govenors Blogo, Ryan, Edgar and Thompson have all been democrats. I get so pissed when they say a Republican challenger is "too conservative". I think Oberwiess would have been a good (not great) canidate, but he made immigration a key issue and the old school GOP wet their pants. The national Republican party had better wake up and realize that immigration is a winning issue. Hillary is a lock for the dem nomination, and stands a serious chance in the general election, IF, she makes some serious moves on illegal immigration, such as introducing some legislation. Where I work the guys in the plant are either Mexican or Polish immigrants and none of them favors illegal immigration, contrary to the deep seated fears of all politicians. And with "native" Americans it's a huge issue. It's a winning issue along with standing up to China. I know Hillary recognizes that, but will she have the ovaries to do something with it. I mostly like Bush, but he is 1000% wrong on immigration. Blogo's $15 million war chest is a big deal. We need a strong canidate to start running now and I don't see that happening. Even though they will probably shred each other the winner of the dem primary will probably be our next govenor. The GOP in this state is such a joke. Don't forget that Edgar is the one that made our "temorary" .5% income tax increase permanent. He is an anti-gun paternalistic piece of crap. I would be very hard presses to vote for him. I would be okay with Poushard, I voted for him against George Ryan.

You are extremely misinformed about our state's governors. Blago is the first democrat to hold the post in over 30 years.

Ryan, Edgar, Thompson were all Republicans. Thompson served four terms. Edgar served two, and Ryan, one. www.iltrails.org/govs.html
