Governor Patrick J. Quinn
May God Help Us All !
When I moved to Illinois in 2003, I called Rod Blagojevich "Governor One-Term". Little did I realize the full incompetence of the IL GOP. Of course it didn't take long to see just how incompetent. Jack Ryan forced out of the US Senate race and replaced by Alan Keyes(I will say no more on him). But, that is not all. In their combined best effort at stopping a return to Springfield of Blago the IL GOP chose Judy Baar Topinka. (She who screwed up the IL GOP and twisted it into an unrecognizable mess by allowing a non-story to taint a decent man when his SEALED divorce records were not only un-sealed, but made public-in a very Obama-kind-of-way and we learned that *gasp* he was inclined to ask his then-wife to have sex outside of the bedroom; essentially handing the US Senate seat to Barack Obama; as Steve Earle sang-you know the rest.) and Joe Birkett(He of the so-very-borderline-criminally-handled Nicarico case) as their candidates.
So, now we have a well-meaning loose cannon as Gov, and no discernable opposition.
as Jimmy Buffet sang-the weather is here, I wish you were beautiful
