Bye Bye, Blago

Well, that was quick. 59-0. The Trib said that Lieutenant Governor Pat Quinn was sworn in "within hours" of Blago's ouster, but I'd be willing to bet it was a lot closer to five minutes.

The ex-governor has been comparing himself to Gandhi, Martin Luther King, and Nelson Mandela lately, but John Kass suggests that John Dillinger might be a better example. He also advise Blago to change his legal strategy from one of defiance to one of singing like a canary to strike back at all those who've just crossed him. We'll see how that works out.

I got a call today from a friend asking me how long until Pat Quinn gets indicted. My suspicion is that the legislature will at least give him a couple of weeks of honeymoon. By the time the snow finally starts melting? well, that could be a whole different story.

Why would Quinn be a target for indictment?

Isn't it basically considered a perk of the job at this point?

Jim, he's an Illinois governor. I have my money on 15 months.
