I am so proud

The governor of our great State was arrested by the Feds on Tuesday. This will be our fifth governor in thirty five years to be indicted (the last governor is still in prison).

The venality of it doesn't bother me as much as the utter stupidity. He actually thought he was going to get away with it.

I was shocked when I heard he went back to his office.. how stupid is that?

Hey, don't feel bad--I'm an Okie and our governors have to worry about being impeached if the public doesn't like them, or they are really stupid! This was on top of jail time for at least one of them, who was mostly just stupid in his choice of backers. I think you mostly have to be an idiot to want to get into politics. Seems like even the best of them have their "human" days.

Hallo Poshie, I have a sister in Jeff City ;-)

Illinois politics tend to be corrupt but from the reading of the charges, Gov B has raised the bar.

Wow. You get the evil geniuses, but our Midwest State just seems to have a run of doofuses. The current guy isn't too bad.
