Bye-Bye Blago

We're not completely done with January yet, but our first political scandal of the year has the fork in it. Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich was thrown out of office yesterday after the state Senate voted unanimously to impeach him and rid the state of his brand of government. Ahh, it should have only been that simple with the shrub and his ilk. I still can't believe we allowed those crooks to rule our country for nine years! Perhaps Nancy Pelosi should take a cue from the Illinois state legislature!

I'd been threatening to come up with a Blago montage, and figured if I didn't do it today, I'd never get around to it. So, with a little help from a piece on Countdown and a few more of Blago's blunders and ridiculous statements, and the Traveling Wilbury's "End of the Line", we bid Blago farewell.

Plus a bit of commentary on the House vote on President Obama's stimulus plan, the passage in the House and Senate of SCHIP legislation, and the new Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act- the first piece of legislation our new president signed in to law!

And one more thing... an interesting wardrobe phenomena I've noticed on MSNBC... All that on today's Radio or Not Podcast.
