Rod Blagojevich’s Jail “Journey” Begins!

| Filed under: Legal MattersPolitikBarack Obama

Blagojevich leaves for jail

And so it begins!

The former governor of Illinois Rod Blagojevich, who disgraced himself, his family, and the world of politics with his many acts of pig-headedness (17 counts, to be exact,) is being served up a steaming plattter of jail-house justice.

Blagojevich left Thursday morning for Englewood correctional facility in Colorado, where he will join other white-collar criminals like Jeffrey Skilling, the former COO of Enron.

In an emotional press conference on Wednesday outside his Chicago home, Blagojevich referred to his impending prison sentence as:

"…a dark and hard journey…This is the hardest thing I've ever had to do, but this is the law and we follow the law and I will begin to do that tomorrow.”

So NOW the law is important. Where is all this righteousness stemming from, Blago?

Perhaps if you had appropriated this attitude before you tried to sell Obama’s senate seat, you could have avoided this fuster cluck of a situation.

That’s one more point for We The People to claim over all the corrupting, slimy, power-thirsty, greedy little munchkins who creep in the shadows of government.

Yay!

    Blago is hot. Don't know what it is about him. Can't put my finger on it. But there is something about him that is really hot.

    I'm sure he'll write a best seller while incarcerated.

    Re: SassySusan – he has to serve half his time as its a federal case. there is no time off for good behavior so the minimum he will serve is 12 years, 11 if he goes through a rehab program. and somewhere in the world, casey anthony is giggling to herself.

    It is 85% time to be served to get to the 12 years and then time off for going into rehab for his "addiciton: he oh so conveniently disclosed AFTER his conviction. He should never have been allowed a press conference - he is a convicted felon - ex governor or not. HIs 12 min speech was like a campaign speech talking about all the "good": he did for Illinois and how he is proud ofhimself and his conscience is clear he did nothing wrong. Of course he did nothing wrong and that is why he is going to prison! He said aybe he should have had more humility - he NEVER had one ounce of humility! He has ALWAYS been a megalomaniacal egomaniac. NOBODY liked him in the state capitol. He had his family living in Chicago and flew back and forth wasting taxpayer $s his whole term - he forgot to mention how he did that! My dad was an immigrant and I am not a big headed con person! How ridiculous is it how many ex governors our state has that have gone to priosn!!!!

    Typical story about a weasel that earns a position he doesn't deserve and then takes advantage of the position! Justice is served. Let him be an example to others that abuse their powers too! It's about accountability, and if there was more of that in this country we would probably be back on our feet! He is a loser!
