Your story is the closest thing this era has to an ancient tragedy, with the important exception that tragic heroes usually had some redeeming quality, something that made what happened to them seem, you know, tragic. Hubris, though: yeah, you have more than your share of that. And arrogance, yowza.
Also, as a person of Illinois, I do not like how you keep invoking the "people of Illinois" who have elected you twice as the people who are getting cheated with this impeachment. We really don't give a flying fuck about you, although we take some comfort in having the rest of the country get a taste of what we have gone through with you as our governor.
I personally find Jon Stewart's "scumbag million hairs" section on the Daily Show to be hilarious every time he introduces it. The joke does not get old. Neither do I blame the legislators for viewing this as their long-awaited chance to finally get rid of you, after all the crap you put them through. You abused your power in so many more ways than plotting to sell that senate seat, and we all know it, because we could hear it between the lines on our local news stations. It takes a prit-tee egomaniacal leader to get to the point where no legislators will agree to even come to the bargaining table with him. That's some achievement.
I wonder what you will do with yourself, with all this time? How will you earn that money you and your wife need so badly? I think you probably will go the way of Jerry Springer or Geraldo, your newest and biggest fan, if you can convince some television network to let you host a show. Or maybe you will try to qualify for the boston marathon and claim that all the timekeepers cheated or that the clocks were defective. Or perhaps you will rip out your tongue or write a memoir, as the ancient and modern tragic figures (respectively) tend to do. Or maybe you will just recede into oblivion where you belong. What ever you do, go on, get out of here. And take your big fat hairbrush with you.
sincerely not yours,
