Well, Illinois Governor Rodney Blagojevich has been impeached. Convicted. Evicted. Voted off the island.
Today's vote by the Illinois Senate (59-0) comes as a surprise to no one. After the excerpts of the audiotapes and Blago's antics since this foolishness became public, it's a relief that the impeachment hearings are over. Now, we're on to the next round of the Blago saga --- more media blitz and the obligatory book deal.
At least the governor and his family are spared the humiliation of moving out of the governor's mansion since they didn't live in the state Capitol anyway.
Lt. Gov. Quinn has already been sworn in as governor and is moving into the governor's mansion. Now the good people of Illinois can move on from the Blagojevich tenure.
