Skunked


Poor Illinoisans…we went from ecstasy to agony in just two months…Obama’s election applied a new upscale, modern patina on the state…we were looking real good. Then Gov. Blago, like a skunk under the porch, was chased out onto our front lawn…wild-eyed and hissing. Now he’s spraying the neighborhood. The stench of his appointment of Roland Burris to Barack Obama’s senate seat will linger a little longer than it takes the American auto industry to turn things around and start building cars people actually want to buy and drive. Senator Obama is the Tesla Roadster of Illinois politicians…sleek, electric, fast and pennies per mile..ahead of it’s time. He’s being replaced in the Senate by Roland Burris, a 1976 Lincoln Town Car. Old school. Pompous, sluggish and gas-hogging. Over wrought and weighted down in the past. It still runs, albeit with an embarrassingly vintage gait.

  1. POOR BLAGGO. A VICTIM OF THE ILLINOIS POLITICAL CULTURE. YOU “FIB,S” CREATED HIM, NOW DEAL WITH HIM!! THIS IS THE YEAR OF THE BURRIS,S. FIRST PLAXICO AND NOW ROLAND, TWO SELF-INFLICTING EGOTIST.ROLAND, THE SELF PROCLAIMED VISIONARY AND “TRAILBLAZER” WILL CERTAINLY HAVE MORE ACCOMPLISHMENTS TO ADD TO HIS TOMBSTONE. LOCKED OUT.DON’T FORGET PRAAJEK,WHEN COMPARING POLITICIANS TO WIDELY SOLD, WELL OILED MACHINES, NONE RARELY SOLD MORE THAN THE DALYMOBILE AND IT STILL SELLS TODAY.
