The Blago-Drama took another spicy twist today. Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich was impeached by the Illinois House today, the Illinois Supreme Court ruled on the Roland Burris case, and then Blago responded with the following arrogant, pompous and politically brilliant press conference.
"From the very moment of my re-election, I've been engaged in a struggle with the House to get things done for the people," Blagojevich said, citing his efforts to improve health care and cut property taxes.
"The House has stood in the way of letting that happen," he said, contending that his impeachment is related to their ongoing dispute and the failure of lawmakers to help Illinois residents.
"The House has failed to act," he said. "So the House's actions and the cause of the impeachment are because I've done things to fight for families who are with me today."
Blago concluded his spectacle with this:
And so I'll leave you with this poem by Tennyson, which goes like this.
"Though we are not now the strength which in old days moved Earth and Heaven, that which we are, we are. One equal temper, of heroic hearts, made weak by time and by fate, but strong in will, to strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield."
What else is there to say?
