Blago Mania...The Governor At His Impeachment Trial

He is addressing the Illinois State Senate now.

Will he resign or just quote poetry for awhile?

Either way, we won't have him to kick around for much longer and that's a shame.

Meanwhile the Lt. Governor is warming up in the wings.

The Bible is ready. The oath has been prepared. The lieutenant governor and his family are on their way to Springfield. And the current governor's belongings are boxed up and waiting to be picked up at the Executive Mansion.

"I definitely plan to be in Springfield and I will be ready," Lt. Gov. Patrick Quinn told the Chicago Sun-Times on Wednesday. Quinn said he has been careful not to be "presumptuous" over the last seven weeks as the Legislature has marched toward today's expected impeachment and removal from office of Gov. Blagojevich.

Update: Nope, doesn't look like he's resigning. He says after his talk he hopes the Senate will reconsider it's position on not allowing him to call witnesses.

He's wrapped up. Basically he said he did nothing wrong and it's an unfair process that did not allow his witnesses. If he's done anything wrong, it's just caring too darn much.
