Emil Jones is my President

That's the bumper sticker and T-shirt we should have in Illinois. If somebody opens up a cafepress.com store, put that up and I'll buy the shirt.

I'm giving credit to Michael Rocket Richards for that line. But apparently, Governor Blagojevich also delivered the line at President Jones' party on Wednesday, so Rocket and Rod can share the credit for coining the phrase as far as I'm concerned.

Is the President a genuine reformer, or is he in bed with some of the most powerful lobbies in Springpatch?

Dan, you're the only regular Illinois political blogger who hasn't weighed in on Blago's recent troubles. Yet you've been pretty busy puffing him up here. What gives?

I think that Alderman Mell and Governor Blagojevich are really having a family fight, and I also think it is kind of sad. I can see why Alderman Mell feels betrayed, or at least, feels like he has been used. So I feel bad for him.

Phocion said...

Sad??? Feel bad for them??? Private family matter????

This is being investigated for criminal wrongdoing, Dan. It is decidedly public, not private.

Are you sure you're not sitting on the fence because your hero Emil Jones will be left hanging out in the wind once Blago falls?

Dan Johnson-Weinberger said...

Yeah, I'm sure.
