Today our new governor of Illinois, Patrick Quinn, announced the following:
"We've had a body blow to our politics and government in the last seven weeks and two days but that's over," Quinn said at a news conference. "Today is a beginning, a start. ... We're going to start to fumigate state government from top to bottom to make sure it has no corruption."
For ex-governor Blagojevich, perhaps this is an appropriate metaphor - or should we say "metamorphosis"? Indeed, Rod-as-Bug seems to be in the collective unconscious right now, if this print for sale on Etsy.com is any indication.
Oh, but the insects do get a bad rap. Fumigate? Impeachment might be enough: I'll take a fly to the ex-governor any day of the week...
